Citizen had partnered with Fossil Group to launch a hybrid watch. The multi-year licensing partnership will see Citizen designing new hybrid smartwatch using the technology from Fossil Group.
This partnership will bring better innovations to the smartwatch space. Though Citizen has never offered a smartwatch let alone a hybrid, they did give us the world’s first Bluetooth-enabled watch in 2006 and the first solar-powered, Bluetooth-enabled watch 6 years later.
Though we have no idea how the final product of this partnership will look like – the design, the features – we can safely bet that 2019 might be the year when the hybrid may make its appearance.
