Hublot’s innovative new Gen 3 connected watch is ready to take Doha by storm
Hublot prides itself for its exclusive special edition watches launched as an homage to cities and countries. This year, the luxury Swiss watchmaker is presenting a limited edition of 100 connected watches dedicated to Qatar: the Big Bang e Qatar Edition.
The Big Bang e Qatar Edition is a watch designed for style-conscious people who lead active lives.
Equipped with the latest technological developments available for wearable technology, the Big Bang e Qatar is a connected watch that adopts all the iconic Big Bang codes. It is an incarnation of the brand’s Art of Fusion ethos: a fusion between tradition and innovation, cutting edge materials and the latest digital technology.
The Big Bang e Qatar is a captivating blend of fine watchmaking techniques and high-end electronics. The imposing, exquisitely engineered 44mm case in micro-blasted and polished beige ceramic and black titanium carries clear echoes of Hublot’s mechanical watch icon, the Big Bang. But in place of state-of-the-art watchmaking mechanics is a Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 4100 processor powered with the latest version of Wear OS by Google™ (Wear OS 3). The watch’s impressive hardware specification includes an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a microphone, a speaker, GPS and a heart-rate monitor. To leverage the power of these sensors, this watch comes pre-programmed with the Strava app, the leading platform for athletes and the largest sports community in the world with over 100 million athletes in 195 countries. Strava gives athletes the ability to record and analyze performance across more than 30 different sport types including running, cycling, swimming, and most recently, soccer.
Bluetooth 5.0 will connect it to a wide range of devices and accessories. It also comes with a full suite of preloaded apps that enable wearers to stay connected and to track activity, health and more. Wearers can discover more great apps with Google Play on their watches.
The smartwatch comes with the promise of all-day battery life and a two-hour charge to full from empty. After five seconds of inactivity, the watch automatically switches into “low consumption mode” to save battery. This legible, ergonomic, gloriously interactive functionality is unique to the watch.
The Big Bang e Qatar wearer will be able to choose between a black lined rubber strap and a beige fabric with velcro strap. Strap changes are simple and use the Hublot patented “one click” system. You can switch straps in an instant by pressing the release button situated between the two bolt heads on either side of the case before clipping in a different strap of your choice.
The watch is Android and iOS compatible and water-resistant to 3 ATM. iOS features and compatibility varies based on device.

We are a young brand with an innovative concept that resonates with their aspirations and we know very well that a new generation of consumer has a different approach to life and needs more than just a watch. ”RICARDO GUADALUPE
