Alba W325 Exercise Walking

In my collection I have many watches by known manufacturers, but I'm surprised about how many can't be found on the internet, and today's is one of those.

The watch is by the Seiko brand Alba, and is likely from 1991 (but there is a chance it is 2001 although from the design I'd think that was unlikely).

This model is called the Exercise Walking, and is a watch designed for keeping track of your walks. The main feature for this is that the watch contains a pedometer, although not one that counts your steps. Instead, you set your step length and the pace you want, and the watch beeps a rhythm. Keep up with the pace, and the watch will then tell you how far you've walked. Inside is a W325 module which also has timer and alarm modes.

The display is a two line LCD. The top line covers day and date, and the distance n walking mode, while the bottom line has 6 digits for the time, or time related numbers. The watch is cased in plastic with a stainless steel back, and is 5 bar water resistant.

The full model number is W325-4000.
