Citizen shifts the wellbeing emphasis to prevention in the new CZ Smart YouQ smartwatch, with software that can predict dips in alertness. The tech gets smarter the more it records, learning the wearer’s preferred time to wake and sleep after a week to ten days of monitoring. Custom strategies advising how to remain at peak fitness and deal with exhaustion will ensure a better quality of life, while forecasts for the upcoming days presented 24 hours in advance can ensure wearers are adequately prepared to maximise alert periods.
