Hublot has unveiled the Big Bang e, a luxurious WearOS smartwatch that will set you back $5,800.
This is not the first time business has attempted to create an intelligent timepiece. Its most well-known wristwatch is the Big Bang referee, which was introduced for the most recent FIFA World Cup. That was the one in Russia in 2018. A sequel was planned for the Euro Cup in early 2020, but with the event postponed, so has the watch.
The Big Bang, on the other hand, is a very different beast. It has a 42mm case with an OLED high-definition touchscreen protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of storage. A 300 mAh battery powers everything.
There’s also water resistance down to 30 meters, an accelerometer, gyroscope, and microphone, but no heart rate sensor or GPS. You do get certain enchantments above standard WearOS devices, such as Hublot watch faces that can display the lunar calendar and another that changes color throughout the day.
There are two options. A $5,800 black ceramic variant and a “cheaper” titanium version are available. This one is $5,200.
Hublot has created a WearOS smartwatch for anyone with an extra $5,800.
The specifications aren’t especially noteworthy, so it’s unclear why the device is so expensive. You’re probably paying for the brand and the sleek craftsmanship. According to the company, the watch has 42 components, the majority of which are for the K Module (the cage that houses the digital heart of the watch). The Big Bang Referee, on the other hand, was somewhat expensive at $5,200.
The watch is not yet available, and Big Bang e is not yet available for pre-order. However, you can sign up on the company’s website to be notified if this changes. We anticipate that this will be a limited-edition timepiece.
