There are a handful of high-end watch brands that offer a collection of smartwatches to sit alongside their mechanical and analog timepieces, and Hublot is certainly one of the most famous among them. Hublot launched its first connected watch back in 2018, and now, the company is introducing its latest variants in the form of the Big Bang e Gen3 watch, offered in black or white ceramic.
The new Hublot Big Bang e Gen3 takes the familiar Big Bang silhouette but revamped into digital form. The watches sport 44mm (14mm-thick) micro-blasted and polished black or white ceramic cases, complete with the customary H-shaped titanium screws and black-plated titanium crowns with rubber inserts.
Encased inside the Big Bang e Gen3 is the Qualcomm® Snapdragon WearTM 4100+ processor, compatible with both Google Android and Apple iOS operating systems. Some standout sensors and features include a heart rate monitor (HRM), accelerometer, gyroscope, Low Latency off Body (LLOB), ambient light sensor (ALS), microphone, speaker, and DC Motor (Vibration). Plus, there is also GPS, Bluetooth Wi-Fi, and NFC payment connectivity.
If you’re a fan of customization, then you’ll be happy to know that the Hublot Big Bang e Gen3 provides 11 digital dials to choose from, ranging from sporty chronograph dials to elegant skeleton dials to more artistic renderings. Moreover, the improved high-definition screen (454 x 454 pixels, 327 dpi resolution) also offers plenty of color options. While the watches are paired with black or white rubber straps, you can easily swap them out to color-match the dial, thanks to the Big Bang e Gen3’s patented interchangeable “One Click” strap system.
The Big Bang e Gen3 by Hublot offers fans of the famed watch model the added benefit of smartwatch practicality. What we have is a design that’s rooted in mechanical watches but repackaged into a modern digital model with all the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect from contemporary connected watches. Throw in the sleek ceramic construction and sporty rubber straps, and this will no doubt be an appealing combination for many modern watch buyers. The Hublot Big Bang e Gen3 Black Magic (ref. 450.CI.1100.RX) and White Ceramic (ref. 450.HX.1100.RX) connected watches are priced at $5,400 USD each and are available for sale immediately via Hublot’s e-commerce platform.
