When CITIZEN says they’re using AI, they’re not kidding around. The AI powering YouQ was developed with NASA’s Ames Research Center and through partnership and tools in the IBM Watson Studio.

The CITIZEN CZ Smart YouQ app will have wearers take a customized “Alert Monitor” test, which is the consumer version of NASA’s Psychomotor Vigilance Task Test designed to test the mental acuity of astronauts.

The CZ Smart YouQ application puts that pedigree to good work by monitoring the wearer’s biofeedback and learning their sleep and wake cycles. From there, it can use alert scores and other data to help you power through those dips in your day.

Over time, as it learns a user’s patterns, it can do more to suggest different “Power Fixes” that will further improve your day!
