Huawei TalkBand B2 Smartband Review

 

Upgraded. The TalkBand B1 is already more than your usual fitness tracker, including as it does a Bluetooth headset. With this new model, Huawei offers a similar design and also tries to break into the premium line. With materials such as leather,...

resistant to water and dust, elegant design, high-quality materials, very light, good tracking performance, integrated Bluetooth headset, good speech quality, usable battery life, works across all platforms

except Windows Phone, microphone is somewhat quiet, notification system could be expanded, barely readable outside

With the Huawei TalkBand B2, the manufacturers take a step in the right direction. We like the new design, the high-quality materials, and excellent workmanship very much. The proven concept of fitness tracker plus Bluetooth headset is convincing on...

Huawei TalkBand B2 review

 

The wearable market is quickly becoming flooded with devices, and every company is trying to make a product that can stand out. Some activity trackers have heart-rate sensors; some offer extralong battery life; others can make mobile payments.

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

 

The Huawei TalkBand B2 is a hybrid wearable that offers both fitness tracking and Bluetooth headset functionality, but it doesn't best dedicated devices in either category.??

Clear call quality. Accurate fitness tracking. Attractive design. Comfortable.

Pricey. Limited use. Faint, reflective display. Positioning in ear can be finicky.

Conclusion The Huawei TalkBand B2 is a decent fitness tracker and an average Bluetooth headset, but it certainly isn't a leader in either category. The touch screen is responsive and the icons are well-animated, but the display is difficult to see. And...

Huawei TalkBand B2 review

 

The TalkBand B2 is a fitness tracker with a Bluetooth earpiece that straps to your wrist, and works, but who needs this combination?

I ended up liking the TalkBand B2’s quirky nature and oddball looks. It certainly got some attention, and the party trick of popping out the earpiece is a bizarrely entertaining crowd-pleaser. It just didn’t fit in very well with my phone use, which is...

Huawei TalkBand B2 Review: A Hybrid Smartband

 

It wasn't long ago that fitness bands were at the front of the wearables pack grabbing all the tech headlines left and right. Then the smartwatches showed up, and talk of Android Wear and Apple Watch are the headlines of the day. But fitness bands are...

Battery Life is amazing. Simple to use tracking app and works with Jawbone UP. Nice design

A little bulky, strap is a little cheap. Price tag at $179.99 is a little high

Overall the Huawei TalkBand B2 does what it does well. The design is slick and good looking but a little too bulky and unruly looking. The software is super easy to use and it is also supposed to work on Jawbone's tracking app, something I did not...

Huawei TalkBand B2 Review

 

Huawei announced its second-generation Bluetooth headset/fitness tracker unit in the Huawei TalkBand B2 during its press conference at Mobile World Congress 2015...

Premium and stylish design ; Convenience factor of being a two-in-one device ; Display blends into the unit’s design ; Automatic sleep mode ; Water & dust resistant construction

Weak volume makes it tough to use as a headset ; Requires some tinkering to find the proper fit in the ear ; Basic data tracking with the Huawei Wear app ; Some minor bugs with the iOS Huawei Wear app

We won’t deny that it’s fantastic that the Huawei TalkBand B2 combines a fitness tracker and Bluetooth headset into one product, it’s just convenient and eliminates the need to purchase and carry on with us two products. Plus, it new premium and...

Huawei TalkBand B2 Review

 

It's a fitness tracker and a Bluetooth headset, and it's called the Huawei TalkBand B2. It's also the first device not made by Jawbone to sync with the excellent UP app. Is it any good?

Doubles as a Bluetooth headset ; Features neat animations ; Fitness data ports to excellent UP app

Display tough to see ; Battery life mediocre ; Expensive

The Huawei TalkBand B2 manages to distinguish itself from other fitness trackers with a few neat tricks, and it works mostly as advertised. It’s surprisingly comfortable, and the animations give it more personality than other devices. If it were less...

Huawei TalkBand B2 Review

 

The Huawei TalkBand B2 is a wearable that really wants to stand out from the rest of the pack. It achieves that to an extent with its Bluetooth headset feature, which lets you make and take calls easily. However, as a fitness tracker, the device falls...

Easy-to-navigate touch-screen display ; Acts as Bluetooth headset ; Water- and dustproof.

Inaccurate sleep tracking ; Integration with Up app is currently limited ; Earpiece still tricky to insert ; Short battery life.

The $179 Huawei TalkBand B2 is an activity tracker that doubles as a Bluetooth earpiece, but its wonky sleep tracking, limited app functionality and short battery life hold it back.

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...
