To celebrate the last edition of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship which took place in Chiba, Japan on the 7th and 8th of September 2019 Alpina and Michael Goulian launched a new AlpinerX watch limited to just 250 pieces.
Since 2003 the Red Bull Air race has been taking place all around the world, bringing excitement to aviators and racing fans alike with more than 90 races in total.
Michael Goulian designed the watch himself using the AlpinerX configurator from the Kickstarter project, fine tuning it to match the new colours of his U.S. based air show plane. You can see a yellow inner ring and a matching strap with the Team 99 logo at 2 o’clock on this one-of-a-kind AlpinerX smartwatch.
The connected timepiece uses advanced measurement functions benefiting from environmental sensors such as the new heart rate monitoring over BLE connection, UV, temperature, altitude, pressure, north direction.
Conceived for outdoor enthusiasts, the watch uses the dedicated Alpina companion application, available for iPhone or Android: it tracks your heart rate while exercising, records and analyses your sleep patterns and notifies missed calls and messages and enables you to easily configure the parameters of your watch. The new companion app has been revisited in order to have an easier overview of all your data via a dedicated dashboard.
Each function is measured in real time by the watch andstreams data to the user’s smartphone to analyze activity and identify areas for improvement while allowing the AlpinerX to receive smartphone notifications on its digital screen.
The AlpinerX has been carefully conceived and designed in the manufacture in Plan-Les Ouates, Geneva. The case is made from glass fiber with a steel back case engraved with the Team 99 logo.
