Hublot has announced its new Hublot Big Bang e Gen3 smartwatch, which lands with Wear OS 3. 

Following on from last year's Big Bang World Cup 2022 edition (and the Big Bang E from 2020) the Hublot  Gen3 smartwatch boasts a 44mm micro-blasted and polished ceramic case, available in black or white. It looks sleeker and less sporty, and it's certainly our favorite Big Bang to date.

The Hublot Big Bang e Gen3 uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, which has now been usurped by the powerful new Snapdragon W5+. It’s disappointing not to get the latest silicon here, which is showing promise of big battery life boosts.

However, it does get Wear OS 3.0, which means that it’s privy to the latest apps and updates.

The Big Bang e Gen3 packs in a heart rate monitor, accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC payment connectivity.

The screen really stands out with a 1.39-inch 454 x 454 AMOLED display at 327 PPI, and it also boasts 11 digital watch faces including a sporty chronograph and elegant skeleton dials.

It’s water-resistant with a 3ATM rating, which means it’s good for the shower, but we wouldn’t risk taking it swimming.

There’s a 400mAh battery, which isn’t particularly large – so you won’t be getting any more than single-day battery life here.

While the watch comes with black or white rubber straps, it features the patented interchangeable "One Click" strap system, allowing users to easily swap them out to match the dial color.

The Hublot Big Bang e Gen3 is available in two models: the Black Magic and the White Ceramic. Both models are priced at $5,400 USD and are currently available for purchase.
