This Thing Makes the Apple Watch Look Like a Toy

Alright, this is pretty good.

By now, you probably know Alpina. They have been making beautiful and high-end Swiss watches since 1883 and have a great eye for tastefully adventurous, quality wristwatches. 

Their updated take on the Alpina Horological Smartwatch features a polished and brushed stainless steel 44 mm case, a stunning navy sunray dial, a genuine brown-colored leather strap, and all the style you need to wear this thing in most any situation. Boardroom? No problem. Job interview? Easy. Tee shirt and jeans? Money.

The "smart" counter is positioned at 6 o'clock and the small steel hand shows you the percentage of your activity or sleep goals achieved. The watch can keep track of daily steps, calories burned, total distance walked or run, track your sleep habit, wake you up in the morning based on your REM cycle, and look good while doing it. You can even set an alarm if you've been idle for too long. A punishing reminder on lazy NFL Sundays, but a good feature to have.

Sure, you can't play Pokemon Go or Words With Friends with this thing, but what kind of grown man needs to? Especially when you have a beautiful large screen device in your pocket that can do all that stuff much more efficiently.

On top of all that, we haven't even touched on the best part about this watch – its battery life is 2+ years. Not having to charge up five times a week is a total and complete game changer.

Priced around $1,000 – you can acquire from authorized dealers today.
