    Incoming Alpina AlpinerX *** new toy ***

    This week I received my new AlpinerX watch. This is my 2nd smart watch at this time. I have a Suunto Spartan Trainer for running, biking and swimming. I got a pretty good deal on it, extra strap & 50CHF discount. It took a little longer to arrive than expected. Lots of functionality and figuring things out. Having some fun with it. Very different from all my other watches.

    Here are a few pics ... I am sorry about the quality.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thank you for photos of the real item. It looks good.

    There was some discussion with questions about this watch.
    When you get some experience with it I think many will want
    to read your report.


    Thanks,

    I just purchased a used one from a fellow WUS member. Should be here in a couple of days. Reading online reviews, they say the battery should last about 2yrs depending how much it is used with the phone. Any idea what the battery size is? I would like to get a few "spares" just in case. Couldn't find any battery info online from Alpina nor from the user guide. Looking forward to tinkering with it. Definitely different than the other 'Smart watches out there.

    Unfortunately I do not know the battery model/size. Hopefully we will be able to get 2 yrs out of it.

    The display has 3 setting (low, medium, high). I like it high so probably that will not help. I only enabled text and phone notification.

    Does it allow a SIM card or microSD?

    Beat me to it. Received my AlpinerX today and took the case back off to check the battery size. You have to have some really good eyes to remove the miniscule screws for the battery “cage”. If you lose any of those the watch might not work and good like finding replacements. Syncing the watch to my phone was pretty easy. Looking forward to playing around with it. Not that large on my wrist either.
