Not Your Average Fitness Band – Huawei Talkband B2
Whether you’re a part of the fitness band brigade or not, the price alone of Huawei’s new Talkband B2 is enough to spark an interest.
Not only does the cost see it separated from the pack, but a sleek design coming in three colours means you wont be sacrificing style. The black and white releases are given a sportier finish while the gold B2 gets a leather strap for a more refined look. All three B2’s have a lightweight feel with the face of the watch being the same width as the band.
Handily, the Huawei Talkband B2 doesn’t discriminate – its features are compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
For workouts, the lightweight design makes the B2 hassle free, while the ‘step tracking’ and ‘calories burnt’ features are both very accurate. The sleep pattern tracker is also a useful add on, and the minimal design makes it easy to nod off with. On top of all that, a 5-day bay battery life means it will spend more time on your wrist than plugged into the charger.
And now, the killer feature, if you feel so inclined… the face of the watch is a detachable Bluetooth headset with hands-free calling capabilities. Not only will you never miss a call again, you’ll actually be able to answer them with the watch. We were impressed with just how clear the sound was, and the convenience meant never having to fish around your bag trying to catch a phone before it rang out.
Starting at only $229, Huawei’s Talkband B2 is being released in Australia throughout July. For further info on all the features and stores selling the B2, head to the Huawei website.
