Wearable hybrids prove the bloated smartwatch is one of Silly Valley's biggest mistakes


The Real Hybrid Smartwatch Experience

I have an Alpina AlpinerX. It's a proper Swiss watch, hand assembled in Geneva. It has a very discrete LCD display under standard analogue watchface. The watch tracks activity, sleep, temperature, altitude, barometric pressure and UV exposure. This information is presented in a very slick smartphone app (Android in my case).

I don't have to charge the battery because it lasts 2 years (which is guaranteed by Alpina).

I paid £420 for the watch as a Kickstarter Super Early Bird, retail price is likely to be closer to £1000, so I realize that it's not for everyone.

The AlpinerX is based on a movement from the MMT Horological Smartwatch platform.
