Many mechanical watch enthusiasts like the idea of a smartwatch but not the digital look. Alpina, the adventurous Swiss watch brand founded in 1883, has come up with the perfect hybrid, a natty diving watch with high tech functions.
The Seastrong Horological Smartwatch as it's called has vintage tool watch looks and usability but easily pairs with an iOS or Android phone through its MMT-365 app.
When not exploring the ocean's depths you can receive call and email notifications, track your activity throughout the day, monitor your sleep patterns during the night, set up sleep cycle alarms set alerts to promote a more active lifestyle, and automatically update your watch's time and date functions.
The Worldtimer function also keeps track of various time zones, and you can store all the watch's data in the cloud and restore it any time should you misplace it or accidentally hit reset.
With black, red and green dial options, 330-ft. water resistance, rally-style strap and affordable price tag, the Seastrong HSW is one timepiece that's ripe for heavy rotation.
