Take AlpinerX to the most exciting slopes of the Alps. The AlpinerX is powered by a quintuple sensor technology. With Kickstarter, we are letting the community influence design and specifications of our watch. Design your AlpinerX from 3'200 colour variations with our Watch Configurator.
We're Alpina Watches and we've been making high quality Swiss watches since 1883. Inventor of the ultimate alpine watch (Alpiner 4) in 1938, Alpina has always been the reference for any outdoors enthusiast. Combining practicality and beauty has always been the core of our expertise.
Why switch between a real watch and an unattractive silicon bracelet when you can wear a stylish Swiss watch to be proud of? With this exciting new product, we remain faithful to our roots by combining an analogue display with a digital screen and an impressive set of connected features.
A team means people and people means ideas. The mountain, the countryside, the city … everyplace and everybody is different, but with the AlpinerX Smart Outdoors people have the flexibility to select features they like.
The AlpinerX uses advanced measurement functions from multiple sensors : UV, temperature, altitude, pressure, meteo, motion and direction. The functions are measured in real time by the watch and displayed on the digital display. Via the app, the user can select functions.
- Beauty. Smartwatch with real Dial and Hands
- Protect yourself. World’s first UV Sensor in watch
- No recharge necessary. 2 Years Battery Life
Upon completion of the Campaign, you can confirm the color combination of your choice with the Watch Configurator. We will assemble AlpinerX watches based on your specific request. All Backers will receive their choosen color variant from the 3200 available combinations.
Unlike other connected products that house their technology in a device that you couldn’t or wouldn’t wear day after day, our watchmaking heritage offers a beautiful piece of horology.
We all have our goals. Whether we’re sitting in an office all day or out exploring the world, we strive towards something special. At Alpina we believe in our independence, perseverance and heritage, and we keep faith in these values.

Temperature is measured at regular intervals by the embedded sensor. The companion app visualises variations of the temperature on a graph.
Our altimeter gives you the altitude by measuring the accumulated atmospheric pressure on location. During a walk in the mountain you can see the altitude in real time on the digital display.
Regular measurements of atmospheric pressure give you the weather trend. You can also quickly check any pressure change by looking at the graphs displayed in the application.
The connected GPS records your courses, walks, runs, etc. Start and stop recording from the watch, you will see your course on the map, with altitude and activity data.
The UV (Ultra Violet) index is a measure of human skin response to sunlight wavelengths (UVA, UVB). Know when to protect your skin and eyes. A feature pertinent at altitude where the UV rays are less filtered by the atmosphere.
An embedded magnetic sensor measures the earth's magnetic north. The watch will show you the direction by aligning the hour hand towards the north. You can align your map direction wherever you are, even offline.
On top of these features, the AlpinerX will always stay On Time and Date, no matter where you are travelling. The functions also include a Worldtimer,Smart Alarms, Get-Active Alarms and a Time Recorder (Stopwatch, Timer, Workouts etc).
Conceived in Geneva, Switzerland, our AlpinerX Outdoors Smartwatch is the combination of fine watchmaking and the latest technology from our horologists and software engineers.
Founded in 1883, Alpina, famous for its signature red triangle, is a fine watchmaking manufacture based in Geneva, Switzerland with a history spanning more than 135 years.
A true pioneer of the Swiss watchmaking industry, Alpina has been the source of numerous patents and innovative calibers. Alpina invented the concept of the Swiss sports watch as we know it today, with the creation of its legendary Alpina 4 in 1938.
By now, you're probably asking yourself why such an established brand is on Kickstarter. Alpina carries a long history of innovation and collaboration. Back in 1903, the Alpinists, a group of watchmakers and retailers would get together to decide on the future designs.
We feel that Kickstarter is the modern version of that heritage of collaboration, where YOU are the Alpinists. We want to offer the Kickstarter Community the chance to give us their feedback and thoughts about the AlpinerX. We want to strengthen our sense of community and involve YOU in the project. Together we can make a difference.
Modernity and innovation is not only about technology, it’s about people. Forward-thinking has always been our motto and we now feel like our customers and community should be at the heart of this evolution. Help us to offer the key to modern-day exploration with an outstanding timepiece. Help us now to reach our summit together.
We invited 10 watch enthusiasts to our factory to show prototypes of the AlpinerX and asked for their feedback. This is what they said:
Components for the AlpinerX Smart Outdoors are in production and we expect to start assemble final watches immediately after the completion of the Kickstarter campaign. All backers will be asked to confirm their preferred design with the Watch Configurator.
Individual deliveries will start in May and will follow with larger quantities in June. Both the iOS and Android Applications are ready. During the Kickstarter Campaign, we expect to start integration of the backers’ feedback into the Apps. New features will be added via App Upgrades as well as Over-The-Air Firmware Upgrades.

Risks and challenges
We have been developing and manufacturing watches since 1883, our supply chain is tested and proven. Since 2015, we’ve been producing smartwatches with accompanying applications and cloud. Our strong background in watchmaking will offer our backers the assurance of a perfect timepiece with high standards. Having our own manufacture, we are also in position to offer a qualitative production process with the proper means to send you the best product possible.
We have begun our purchase of 3000 sets of components to produce our first batch of the AlpinerX Outdoors Smartwatch. Most of the components are currently being delivered. Moreover, we have our in-house ateliers fully ready to start assembly.
This Kickstarter campaign will enable us to determine which designs are most liked by the public and adjust our production. For larger quantities, if we are lucky to receive that many pledges, we run the typical supply chain risks. We have been involved with mass production before and we have valuable relationships with manufacturers, consequently we are confident that they will be able to handle large series beyond the first 3000 pieces.
As part of this Kickstarter project, you will take an active part in the finalization of our user experience by providing your insights - from your favourite design, to your emphasis on app features - and we will be listening to your feedback and integrating it into the AlpinerX Smart Outdoors whenever possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
