Please note some Citizen designer had a sense of humor when he/she put a statement at 7 o'clock=UNABLE TO PROCEED.
And the 'Require Doctor' bezel entry at the 1:00 mark is for those that actually buy the damn thang...

I like Citizen. I had a good look at quite a number of their watches. They're really well-made, and usually reasonably priced. Of course, some have a small detail fucking them up, like an odd lug width.

But...

Great Scott! 'Tis one fucking hideous hockey puck, this thing. Silly toy.

Okay...I gotta play devil's advocate here. Might this watch be Citizen's answer to the Breitling Emergency, but for air travel?

I mean...those letter codes next to the "statements" ("Unable To Proceed"). Might, since this is GPS equipped, be meant to be a watch used to contact others in case of an emergency? Could its signal be picked up by flight towers? Those are ground-air emergency signal codes. Why would they write them on the dial unless there was a way to communicate them with ... well, somebody.

Confusing, at least to a civilian such as myself.

Seiko did this too, on the chapter ring of the very fine SARB059, which I once owned, but like a dick, sold. Now they're going for insane money.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

There is indeed a way to communicate with them beyond GPS. They serve as an aide memoire if you happen to be wearing this watch when you're stranded on a desert island and need to scratch out a message in the sand or snow or lay out one from branches in order to communicate with an air search. "Help!" is good, but "need food" or "need a doctor" communicates a more specific emergency.

Based upon succeeding comments, I took a second look at this watch and see that the functions are for emergency purposes. That and the fact that it is SOLD OUT on the Citizen website makes me re-think my original observation.
