My watch update failed and my AlpinerX watch doesn’t respond anymore.

When performing the OTA (Over The Air) update of your AlpinerX watch, the Bluetooth connection can get lost and the watch update will fail.

The watch will then enter a static state where the hands do not move. The watch is actually waiting for the AlpinerX application to connect and re-start the update.

In most cases, the AlpinerX application will propose to re-start the OTA update. If not, or if you have killed the application, you can follow these steps:

  1. Close the AlpinerX application and open it again
  2. The AlpinerX application will show you the OTA update page in order to re-start the OTA update
  3. Press the crown pusher of the AlpinerX watch (3 o’clock pusher)
  4. Keep the AlpinerX watch as close as possible to the phone
  5. Re-start the OTA update
  6. Keep the AlpinerX watch close to the phone until the end of the OTA update
  7. In some cases, after the OTA, you may need to pair again your AlpinerX watch to your phone

My hands seem slightly loose / show some gage. Why?

This is perfectly normal and you shouldn't worry.

The phenomenon is very common within the engineering world and is called backlash.

Indeed, your AlpinerX isn't a traditional mechanical timepiece.

When hands would be held back by a cog in a classic mechanical watch, as the AlpinerX is a connected device, your watch's hands are held by a micromotor behind the dial.

The latter being relatively heavy, a small gage can become visible and is necessary for the well-being of the operating movement.

Our tolerance is thus normal and standard compared to other connected watches and devices on the market.

My watch isn't on time, what should I do?

Important notice
Please do not pull on your watch's crown. Time is set as instructed below.

If your watch's hands don't display the correct time, you can "align your hands" via the app.

Go to your app's main menu, select "my watch" and "align hands".

If your watch’s hands are aligned at 12 o’clock (straight up), then your hands are correctly adjusted. If one or both hands are not pointing at 12 o’clock, please select each hand and use the arrow keys to align to 12 o’clock.

My altimeter measurements seem wrong,
what should I do?

Due to the use of pressure to calculate the altitude, your AlpinerX's altimeter is sensitive to variations in atmospheric pressure, i.e. in weather changes.
It is therefore not uncommon to observe altitude differences of 100m in a night.
The value displayed may, therefore, vary without the altitude having actually changed.

For more information on the measurements, please visit our SENSORS section

My UV measurement doesn't seem to work.

If your measurement looks odd, please make sure that:

  • Your watch's glass is clean
  • You are not indoors
  • You have followed the steps listed below (and making sure that your watch's dial is facing the sun)

  1. Press on your watch’s crown pusher at 3 o’clock until you reach the UV function on your AlpinerX's digital screen.
  2. To take your UV measure, make sure your dial faces the sun and press on the pusher at 2 o’clock.
  3. The index measure will flash on the watch’s digital display until the measurement is complete.
  4. UV LOW / UV MED / UV HIGH / UV XTR will appear on the screen according to the value.
  5. The results are also available in the app via the UV dashboard.

To launch a new measure, simply press again on the pusher at 2 o’clock.
