MWC 2015: Huawei TalkBand B2 hands-on review

 

We wrap our hands, wrists (and ears) around Huawei's fitness tracker/headset hybrid.

The TalkBand B2 is a million miles better than its ugly predecessor. It's grown up, ditched the tracksuit bottoms, and returned in a bespoke suit. While its arguable how useful its Bluetooth headset transformation is, at least it brings something...

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

 

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

 

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: 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

 

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

 

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 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...
