2022 is going to end on a high for all football fanatics. The FIFA World Cup in Qatar is the ultimate year-ending spectacle I for one am desperately looking forward to. Come November; whether you are a referee on the field, coach in the dugout, or a supporter in the office cubicle; Hublot has a new connected watch to keep you in the heart of the action all the time.
Partnering with FIFA for the World Cup 2022, Hublot has extended its scope in the Big Bang e line-up to release the Hublot Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. This connected watch is designed for the world’s largest football tournament by Hublot which is the official timekeeper of the FIFA World Cup now for the fourth consecutive time. The smartwatch intends to time all 64 games of the mega event and be your favorite workout companion thereafter.
Hublot and FIFA collaboration is a celebrated affair since 2010 when the Haute horology giant tied knot with FIFA. The watchmaker has etched its name in each football buff’s consciousness by outfitting referees of FIFA men and women World Cups with essentially designed Big Bang e-smartwatches ever since. In spite of that, The Big Bang E FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is one of the finest Big Bang e’s to date. The 44mm polished titanium case and black ceramic bezel are overpowered by an AMOLED touchscreen display touting 127dpi resolution. The official variant of the watch will arrive in a burgundy dial paired with a black colored rubber strap finished with burgundy lines. This look is inspired by the flag color of Qatar, the country which will be hosting the world cup.
Drawing power from a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, the watch comes with a 400 mAh battery, claimed to offer a day’s battery life, and can be customized for each fan willing to spend on the state-of-the-art timepiece. The fans can choose the dial and strap-in colors of any of the 32 teams participating in the FIFA World Cup kicking off on November 20 with the game between Qatar and Ecuador. Until then, the Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will be in a ‘countdown mode:’ keeping note of the days to kickoff.
The watch runs Wear OS 3.0 to let the user access apps on Google Play. Additionally, it can display fast, simple in-match statistics on the dial for quick fan consumption. The dial will show up team line-ups and player profiles 15 minutes before each game and go into specially designed ‘match mode’ after kick-off to display highlights – including goals, game time, etc. – so you don’t miss a minute of the match your country is playing. Limited to just 1,000 examples, the Hublot Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 smartwatch will retail for $ 5,800.
