The Alpina Shadow Line Collection Brings Basic Smart Features

Swiss timepiece-maker Alpina is continuing to embrace the world of smartwatches by adding a new line of e-straps to its Shadow Line collection. Comprised of six watches, the Shadow Line collection e-straps take design inspiration from the brand's Startimer Pilot Automatic collection. The smart e-straps themselves will bring a host of connected features including activity tracking, sleep monitoring, and inactivity alerts. The strap should offer a week's worth of battery life and can be recharged via a USB charger.

This information is then fed to Alpina's companion app, available on iOS or Android, where users can also utilize features such as dynamic coaching and cloud backups. The Shadow Line collection may seem sparse on tech features, but the watch is more designed as a hybrid timepiece rather than a full-on smartwatch.
