Ratings and Reviews
I just received the W770 for Christmas and the approx 20 minutes that it stays connected is a joke. The software should be able to set the main, and local times clearly and separately. As well as the alarm. What is the point of vibration for alerts if it won’t stay connected. I had to fight just to update the firmware so I could save the connection to the phone.
Please update the app and firmware to give full functionality to us, this is way to expensive of a watch to have it pretend to be able to do something. I love Citizen watches and the idea that a Samsung does a better job for less money is disappointing.
Works Well, But Not Perfect
I just received my Citizen W770 as a gift and all in all the watch works great from the tech standpoint.
The common complaint I see most people make is the Bluetooth disconnecting randomly, even when in close proximity. I have experienced that a few times so far, but I’d imagine that can either be fixed with an App Update or a firmware update to the watch. My hope is that Citizen sees enough people mentioning the sporadic connectivity issues and works on a fix to improve that.
Thankfully when it does disconnect it’s a simple task to get it reconnected and doesn’t lead I to a complicated process. Hopefully future updates improve that part, otherwise the app does exactly what it advertises and works well for me.
It worked for me
This is a “techie” watch and if someone (me including) isn’t exactly a “techie” person, you may just need to take time and read the manual. I can see where someone may get frustrated, but it’s not necessarily the app that is the problem, it could be you are doing something wrong. It took me some time to get my phone and watch synced, but I just kept looking for answers and they are all there in the Citizen Bluetooth watch instruction manual. Now that it’s connected, I love the features it offers.
