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:
- OTS (Optical Tracking Sensor) for the rotating crown
- 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.
