Huawei TalkBand B1 review

 

Huawei's first foray into the world of wearables is a strange beast indeed when compared to what else is on the market. The TalkBand B1, which we first saw back at MWC 2014 in February, is nominally a wrist-based fitness tracker that connects to your...

The TalkBand works as both a fitness tracker and a Bluetooth earpiece, with solid call quality and a very respectable battery life.

While it's competent at both its functions, it masters neither. The companion app might be too simplistic for people who want a little more depth in their quantified self.

While the TalkBand B1 is a valiant first try for Huawei, it could actually use a little more focus. While it might find a niche with some users, most people are likely to prefer dedicated individual devices instead.

Huawei TalkBand B1 Review

 

In distancing and distinguishing itself from the myriad of models floating around at the moment, the Huawei TalkBand B1 is an intriguing option due to the fact that it combines the health oriented features of a fitness tracker – while also doubling as...

Combines a Bluetooth headset and fitness tracker into one unit ; The wrist strap doubles as the unit's charging cradle ; Exceptionally long battery life as a fitness tracker ; Waterproof construction

Pretty basic with its set of features ; Display only shows us our daily results ; Weak volume output ; Mobile app is pretty light with meaningful data

It's pretty amazing that the fitness tracker market continues to gain steam, despite the saturation we're already seeing. Huawei's venture into the space is an intriguing one, partly because they've decided to go with a totally different approach by...

Huawei Talkband B1 Review

 

Huawei Talkband B1 does something other smartwatch fitness tracking devices, like a Nike Fuel Band or the Fitbit, don't do by putting a detachable Bluetooth headset on the wrist. This results in a useful 2-in-1 tool for fitness freaks who also want to...

Like we expected, putting both solutions into one devices results in a compromise. The Huawei Talkband B1 works well as a fitness tracking smart watch. As a Bluetooth headset, it’s almost a buy. The loose fit makes it hard to recommend as a headset by...

Huawei TalkBand B1 review

 

Combining a wearable item that so many people use with a technology fewer people are using every day Wearables, fitness trackers and smartwatches are all the rage, and Huawei wasn't to be left in the dust when it announced the TalkBand B1. Yes it's a...

If you choose to drop a cool $129 on a TalkBand as a way to track your activity and sleep on a daily basis, you might feel like you're not quite getting your money's worth. At that price it doesn't come out ahead of the other options from Fitbit,...

Huawei TalkBand B1 Review

 

Huawei's TalkBand B1 wants to be a lot of things: a step tracker, a sleep monitor and a Bluetooth earpiece all in one. Unfortunately, it's not stellar at any of these functions. While the $130 B1 accurately tracks steps, calories, distance and sleep,...

Comfortable design ; Customizable sleep and event alarms ; Clear Bluetooth calling ; Water resistant

Earpiece tricky to insert ; Lacks exercise tracking

The Huawei TalkBand B1 is a basic fitness tracker that doubles as a Bluetooth earpiece, but it is light on features for the price.

Huawei Enters the Wearables Market with the TalkBand B1

 

Huawei added a new product category into their consumer products line-up today with the announcement of the TalkBand B1. The hybrid 'talk and track' companion to the recently announced MediaPad X1 is their attempt at interpreting the concept of wearables.

Huawei TalkBand B1 review

 

Wearable tech is hot stuff at the moment, and lots of new manufacturers are testing the water. Huawei's first effort is a strange device which tracks steps and sleep, but also works as a Bluetooth earpiece for phone calls. Our TalkBand B1 review will...

The TalkBand B1 will appeal to anyone who uses a Bluetooth headset on a regular basis. It offers somewhere to store the headset while you're not using it, and helps you monitor your sleep and activity as a bonus.The poor step-counting accuracy is very...

Hands-on at MWC 2014 - A fitness band and Bluetooth headset in one

The Huawei Talkband B1 manages to separate itself from the competition by adding Bluetooth headset capabilties to a phone. It does so without adding masses of bulk. However, it might not have the convenience factor it needs, given to use it as a...

Huawei Talkband B1 hands-on review

 

The TalkBand B1 is what Huawei calls a “hybrid smartband.” It's a two-in-one device, giving the user both a fitness tracking device and basic smartwatch, as well as a Bluetooth headset for making and receiving calls.

We like Huawei's thinking here, and for those who want to take calls without needing to remove their smartphone it does provide a solution plus the added bonus of a fitness tracker, but we're not sure it's been executed very well. The overall device is...
