UEFA EURO 2020 is round the corner. Yes. 2020. That’s not a typo, btw. Last year’s football event of the year was postponed to 2021 because of the pandemic. For some reasons, UEFA decided to stick with 2020 and hence, the UEFA EURO 2020.
The Hublot Big Bang e UEFA Euro 2020 Connected Watch is, of course, based on the luxury watchmaker’s smartwatch, Big Bang E.
In addition to the smartwatch, Hublot is also introducing a brand-new podcast featuring interviews with the greatest sporting icons, as well as an NFT (non-fungible token) for the first two hundred customers who purchase the watch.
Aesthetically, the 42 mm UEFA-branded Hublot smartwatch stands out with colors of the flags of the 12 nations initially planned to host (the game) on the bezel. But that’s really it as far as cosmetic is concerned.
The real meat of this smart timepiece is in the software. Powered by Wear OS, adapted to Hublot’s requirements, fans will appreciate the app dedicated to football.
The app lets you follow the competition in real-time. In addition to following the matches with timekeeping, half-time, extra time and the end of the match, you will also be notify of cards awarded, player substitutions, penalties and goals.
Plus, you will have the options to view information on the team lineups, players’ rankings and position on the field.
Last, but not the least, you can download, free of charge, dials in the color of their country exclusively developed for the Big Bang e from Google Play Store.
Needless to say, these are software features only a true soccer fan can appreciate.
As a smartwatch, the Hublot Big Bang e UEFA Euro 2020 Connected Watch gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 with Quadcore CPU up to 1.094 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of Flash storage, Bluetooth 4.2 and wireless 802.11 (2.4 GHz), NFC, a 1.2-inch AMOLED display protected by sapphire crystal, push-button on the rotary crown for activating functions, the usual suspect of sensors, and a 300 mAh battery good for a day use.
Each watch is paired to a rubber strap with titanium buckle clasp as standard, but soccer fanatics can choose to pick up the optional straps in the colors of their favorite teams.
The strap can be easily swapped out, thanks to Hublot’s one-click strap change system.
