THE ALPHA CHARACTERISTICS
* NBIC nano-, bio-, information- and cognitive science-technologies.
Never before has the challenge of combining a mechanical watch movement and the technology of a smartwatch been successfully met. The resulting product is the first fully functional automatic smartwatch of the market. Alpha provides you not only with the time, but also with a whole range of measurements and information displayed on two full color screens.Gestural recognition, extremely electronics miniaturizing, exclusive GPS antenna are the main features of this exceptional object.
A CUSTOMIZED OBJECT
Alpha’s ultra-sophisticated housing contains a multitude of applications. Its internal sensors provide useful and reliable information on both ambient and biometric parameters: pressure; temperature; UV exposure; position and route; altitude and depth; heart rate; oxygen saturation; calories; etc.
This information is measured, displayed on screen or recorded in Alpha’s internal memory. These features do not require the presence of a smartphone.
However, Alpha can also serve as an extension of iOS and Android smartphones, as it can inform you of emails and text messages received, activity on your favorite social networks as well as real-time notifications from chosen suscriptions.
MARSO TECHNOLOGY AND GESTURE RECOGNITION
Above all, Alpha is a watch build according to Swiss traditional watchmaking standards and know-how. It is entirely designed, manufactured and assembled in Switzerland. It contains a self-winding mechanical movement with a 48-hour power reserve, which ensures a remarkable autonomy, even at rest. Thus, Alpha will always tell you the time, whether or not the batteries for the other functions are charged.
The watchcase is made of ceramic or compressed carbon, both materials chosen for their strength as well as their lightweight and unalterable properties. The double-sided antiglare coated crystal and watch face are made of sapphire. The luminescent polished rhodium-plated metal hands and indexes ensure constant readability.
REACH YOUR NETWORK ANYWHERE YOU ARE
With Alpha on your wrist, you will stay informed, in all discretion, of all the activities on your favorite social networks. Through a slight vibration or by the mere display of a digital message, you will receive real-time notifications from all of your subscriptions. You then decide to deal with it using your phone.
As for your phone calls, you can reject or accept them a simple hand gesture.
You can choose between two materials for the middle part of your watch: compressed carbon, or white or black ceramic. Ceramic has the particularity of being scratch-resistance, of being very stable and very resistant to temperature variations. Carbon combines lightweight and strength. Both are highly permeable to radio waves, which guarantees the quality of the connection between watch and phone via Bluetooth.
For the glasses, the choice fell on sapphire, known by being scratch-resistant, unbreakable and anti-glare. The inner housing is made from injected carbon fiber designed to withstand impacts, pressure or bending stresses. The bracelets are made of Kevlar and nomex (in the carbon version) or alligator leather (in the ceramic version). Other elements like bezel, applique, crown’s protection, clasp and buckle are made of micro-blasted polished gray titanium.
