The Hublot Big Bang e Watch Review

Posted by Daniel Luczak on 22nd Dec 2020

Hublot stepped foot into the smartwatch arena during the 2018 soccer world cup when it was among the sponsors of the event.

In the beginning, Hublot only released a limited number of watches. However, Hublot later redesigned these extremely expensive and limited edition watches for the referees and the fans.

These redesigned watches are available at a price of USD 5,200 and USD 5,800 for different versions. These are the least expensive watches from Hublot, but the most expensive smartwatches in the industry. Let’s take a look at what Hublot Big Bang e has to offer.

What Makes Hublot Big Bang e Special?

There are two different versions of Hublot Big Bang e: Titanium and black ceramic. It is true that these watches look amazing on the wrists and offer a beautiful exterior design. However, with an expensive price tag, it makes sense to see what Hublot Big Bang e brings to the table.

The Case Design

The Hublot Big Bang e series offers a diameter of just 42mm and a thickness of 12.8mm. This is slightly smaller as compared to other competitors, but these dimensions offer a sleeker look. Moreover, the case comes in a sandwich-style design and offers a water resistance of up to 30 meters.

Additionally, this case comes with a real sapphire crystal and the proprietary Hublot One Click strap mechanism. This offers an easement for changing between multiple straps.

There are two different versions of this watch. One offers a titanium case, whereas the other offers a black ceramic case.

For the first version, Hublot designed the case with a Titanium material. This is satin-finished and polished titanium. As for the second version, Hublot decided to go with a black ceramic material. This is a micro-blasted and polished black ceramic that offers a unique look to the users.

The Internal Specifications

The dial comes in a diameter of 30.80mm. With a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 3100 chip, this watch offers a screen resolution of 390 x 390 pixels. This chipset is a quad-core version that offers a maximum computational speed of up to 1.094 GHz. Moreover, the AMOLED screen offers a DPI (dots per inch) density of 327.

Moreover, the watch comes with 1 GB of RAM inside to ensure a smooth interactive environment for the touch screen. There is also 8 GB of storage, and the watch supports both Bluetooth and WLAN.

The watch offers an NFC chip for wireless connectivity and payment options but doesn't support GPS. This may be a letdown since the majority of modern smartwatches focus heavily on the GPS functionalities.

Other sensors include:

  • Accelerometer
  • Gyroscope
  • OTS (Optical Tracking Sensor) for the rotating crown
  • Microphone
  • LLOB (Low Latency off Body)
  • DC motor for vibration
  • ALS (Ambient Light Sensor)

Lastly, this internal prowess is backed by a powerful 300 mAh Lithium-Ion battery with induction charging. One single charge will take up to 2.5 hours and will last roughly 1 Day.

The Watch Straps

Hublot offers a lined black rubber strap for these versions. If we talk about the titanium version, it comes with a black-plated titanium buckle clasp for easy adjustments and changes. On the other hand, the black ceramic version comes with a black ceramic coated rubber strap.

The Bottom Line

Hublot is offering the titanium version for $5,200USD and the black ceramic version for $5,800USD. While both these versions are almost similar, the black ceramic version offers a unique charcoal feel.

So, if you have already purchased one of these models, and are looking for brand-new watch straps, DaLuca Straps may be the perfect place to start.
