The Alpina Seastrong Horological is a Hybrid Smartwatch for Divers

by in News .



Most people who buy a diver’s watch, be it a Citizen or an Omega, never actually dive with it. Instead, they buy their diver’s watch because they like the way it looks, or sometimes, for the fancy movement inside, and the only action the watch sees is ‘desk diving’.

If you like the way dive watches look too, but you want to get in on the fitness and activity tracking capabilities of smartwatches, then consider a smartwatch called the Alpina Seastrong Horological. The Alpina Seastrong Horological shares some of the same name as the Alpina Seastrong Diver 300 Automatic, but the two watches shouldn’t be confused, since they have different movements and don’t even share the same bezel.

The Alpina Seastrong Horological isn’t a true diving watch, hence our opening paragraph, since it only has a water resistance rating of 100m. It also doesn’t have a helium escape valve, which means it’s better suited to people who want a diver’s watch on their wrist for the style rather than the practicality. Having said that, however, the Alpina Seastrong Horological certainly looks the part. It has a chunky 44mm case that’s made from fibreglass, a stainless steel riveted bezel, a polished crown and the crystal is sapphire.

That crown doubles as a button so you can access certain smartwatch features. For instance, you can cycle through your alarms and request smartphone push notifications. The Alpina Seastrong Horological connects to your smartphone through Bluetooth, and it can track your activity (steps) and your sleeping patterns. The data collected by the watch can then be accessed through a mobile application. The Alpina Seastrong Horological is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones too.

The Seastrong Horological is available in a few colours too: Black, Green, Orange and Navy Blue, although the only part of the watch that changes colour is the bezel - Green models also get a green strap. The case remains black (fibreglass).



 

Pricing and Availability


The Alpina Seastrong Horological hasn’t been released yet, and Alpina will be showing it off at Baselworld in March, so we expect the Seastrong Horological to be available for purchase in April or May. Alpina has already gives us the retail price - 595CHF - which equals the same number of USD (give or take a few Cents). We’ll be covering this hybrid smartwatch a little more as new information emerges, so stay tuned to find out more about its features.
