Huawei TalkBand B2

 

A general refresh of last year's lacklustre offering, the Huawei TalkBand B2 is the Chinese manufacturer's second wearable and a direct replacement to the Huawei TalkBand B1. A wrist-based activity tracker with an unusual party piece, the TalkBand's...

Huawei Talkband B2 review

 

Now you really can talk to the band

Unobtrusive and comfortable ; It's a fitness tracker with a Bluetooth earpiece in it!

Seems wildly overpriced ; Mediocre and brief feature list ; Who wants a fitness tracker with a Bluetooth earpiece in it?

The very best fitness tracker with a Bluetooth earpiece in it that you can buy. Not really recommendable on any other level, especially given that it's the same price as a Microsoft Band and far pricier than a Fitbit Charge HR. The TalkBand B2 is snug,...

Huawei TalkBand B2 review: Bluetooth bling, but lacking

 

Huawei is digging deep into wearables, having announced three devices at Mobile World Congress in March 2015. Ranging from smartwatch to activity tracker, it's the TalkBand B2's mixture of tracker meets Bluetooth earpiece headset that stands out as...

Bluetooth calling functionality (if that's what you're after), more premium looking design than original TalkBand, basic activity tracking, iOS and Android compatible

Battery life not as great as claimed, activity tracking not as accurate as competitors, app is far less advanced than competitors, display not readable in bright conditions

The idea of the Huawei TalkBand B2 is one you'll either love or hate. It all boils down to whether you want a Bluetooth earpiece or not - because if you're looking for an activity tracker that allows you to answer calls without talking to your wrist...

Huawei TalkBand B2 review: A 2-in-1 activity tracker that doesn't measure up

 

The TalkBand B2 in a wrist-based activity tracker that doubles as a Bluetooth headset. It's also the first third-party device that can sync with Jawbone's powerful Up software. But ultimately, this device is less than the sum of its parts.

The Huawei TalkBand B2 combines a fitness tracker and Bluetooth headset into one device. It's the first non-Jawbone device to offer compatibility with Jawbone's excellent tracking app, and it works with iPhones and Android phones.

The band is bulky and uncomfortable to wear, and battery life falls short. For the price you would expect added features, such as notifications from a smartphone. The Huawei app is bare-bones, and syncing with the Jawbone app was completely undependable.

Despite its unique two-in-one design -- it's a fitness tracker and Bluetooth headset -- the Huawei TalkBand B2 ultimately overpromises and underdelivers on both accounts.

Huawei TalkBand B2 review

 

The shiniest fitness tracker ever

Looks smart ; Surprisingly slick implementation

Very expensive ; Very limited smart features ; A likely ridicule-magnet ; Rubbish visibility in bright sunlight

Slick looks and smart design are nice, but don’t quite make up for the limited features and high price.

Huawei TalkBand B2 review: Weird or wonderful?

 

During MWC 2015 in March, Huawei unveiled a new version of its TalkBand, a wrist-worn fitness tracker that also doubles as a Bluetooth headset. We've been using the wearable for a few weeks now to bring you our Huawei TalkBand B2 review.

The TalkBand B2 is certainly an enormous improvement over the TalkBand B1 in terms of design and practicality, but I'm still not sure I'd buy one. It's an opinion divider, but I think for a (probably small) number of people, this device is going to be...

Huawei TalkBand B2 review: Hands-on with the new TalkBand

 

Huawei has used MWC 2015 in Barcelona to launch a new version of its TalkBand, the wrist-worn fitness tracker that also doubles as a Bluetooth headset. We spent some time with the new wearable on the MWC show floor to bring you our Huawei TalkBand B2...

The TalkBand B2 is certainly an enormous improvement over the TalkBand B1 in terms of design and practicality, but we still wouldn't buy one. It's quite pricey and the idea of going back to Bluetooth headsets doesn't appeal to us at all. We'll have to...

Huawei Talkband B2

 

This is watch, a fitness device and it tracks your footsteps. More importantly if you wear it while in bed it tells you how well/or not you are sleeping. So what if anything makes this a better device than numerous other such offerings?

The TalkBand B2 is available from the link below for £99.99 with free delivery.
