Hublot's FIFA-themed luxury smartwatch goes official and costs a small fortune
The result of the collaboration with FIFA, the smartwatch will be released under a weird name: Big Bang Referee 2018 World Cup Russia. When it teased its wearable device a few days ago, Hublot confirmed only a limited number of units will be produced, and today that number was revealed: 2,018.
The smartwatch is made out of light titanium and its bezel is decorated with 6 H-shaped screws and features Kevlar insert. The AMOLED display sports an analog mode dial and supports 400 x 400 pixels resolution. You won't be getting more than a day of battery life out of Hublot's luxury smartwatch, but you'll benefit from 5 ATM water resistance.
Since it's a FIFA-themed smartwatch, the Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia announces the wearer about matches 15 minutes before their kick-off, as well as yellow and red cards, player changes and goals.
The Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia is fully compatible with smartphones running Android 4.4 and above or iOS 9 and above. The $5,200 price is justified by the fact that this is a limited edition product and that it uses some high-quality materials. It will go on sale in mid-April, so start saving if you want one.
