Ricardo Guadalupe, the CEO of Hublot, commented:
"In these challenging times, football continues to be a source of much-needed joy for fans all over the world. Hublot loves football and continues to partner with the game’s greatest competitions. It’s our privilege to introduce the Hublot Big Bang e Premier League, a connected watch designed to bring passionate fans even closer to the world’s most-watched league. Hublot is really proud to be working with the Premier League and to be creating memorable experiences for people who love watches and love football."
A lot of the special features of the luxury Hublot smartwatch are centered around delivering live updates about Premier League football matches. These are available via an app that is pre-installed on the watch but can also be downloaded from the Play Store. Users can get push notifications and information about kick-off times of matches, scores, penalties, extra time, red and yellow cards, subs, team line-ups, VAR decisions, and more. There is a mode called Match Mode which turns on automatically when a match begins. Users can even switch between two or more matches if there is more than one match going on.
Another special version of the smartwatch with extra functions will soon be made exclusively for Premier League referees. That version will be lighter and not be available for purchase in the consumer market.
If you're looking to secure a unit of the expensive Big Bang e Premier League smartwatch, it will set you back a hefty $5,200, excluding VAT. For potential buyers, more details about the costly watch can be found on the official Hublot website.
