Alpina and its Swiss stablemate Frederique Constant — both owned by Citizen Watch Company — have been early enthusiasts for connected hybrid watches where traditional hours minutes and seconds hands share the face with a digital display.
A new generation, unveiled by Alpina today, has improved onboard sensors and the watch’s smart features can be controlled from a high-resolution AMOLED touch screen or a smartphone app.
The new AlpinerX Alive offers GPS tracking, heart rate monitoring, message and call notifications, a chronograph and a personal training app.
The Dynamic Coach suggests a range of exercises and recommendations based on data such as sleep quality, heart rate and activity.
There are six 45mm fiberglass and steel or PVD coated models in the 2021 collection in blue, brown and beige colorways and there are a range of strap options including rubber and nubuck leather.
They are waterproof to 100 meters. Prices start at $1,095.
