Citizen W700 VIRT

Citizen today updated its VIRT smart watches with a new version of the W700. The tweaked design is friendlier, the company says, shipping in a much intimidating blue or pink with softer design cues and larger buttons. Bluetooth its still its central focus, however. Pairing with a nearby cellphone lets it display caller ID and vibrate for an incoming call, saving the time of fishing the phone out of a pocket. The wristwatch charges through a dock and displays information on an OLED for better visibility.

As is often the case with Japanese-made electronics, Citizen hasn't revealed the price. The firm expects to launch the watch for the island nation in mid-March; a US equivalent to the W700 is possible, but unconfirmed. [via Gizmodo]
