See the new timekeeping technology and data handling for alpine skiing created by Longines, which will officially be inaugurated during the 2017 Alpine World Ski Championships in St. Moritz, of which the brand is the Official Partner and Timekeeper.

The sensors will enable the real-time and continuous measurement of the athlete’s speed, acceleration and deceleration, the time it takes to reach 100km/h and an analysis of jumps. The latter is at the heart of the first out of four Longines Live Alpine Data system explanatory videos, unveiled today in the context of the FIS Alpine World Cup in Val Gardena.
