$179 Huawei TalkBand B2 to have detachable Bluetooth headset
Huawei TalkBand B1 launched almost a year ago at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona proved out to be a successful fitness tracker with its impressive features. Now riding on the success of its predecessor is the 0.73-inch touchscreen TalkBand B2 which is now available for purchase starting today for a price tag of $179. Launched initially at the MWC 2015, this waterproof and dustproof fitness tracker has noticeable improvements as compared to the TalkBand1.
First of all Huawei TalkBand2 has its own detachable Bluetooth earbud and it syncs with Jawbone Up app in a jiffy. Also it is compatible with more than 3000 supported apps. Functional with both Android 4.0+ and iOS 7.0+ devices, the fitness tracker is able to identify precisely whether the wearer is running, cycling or climbing up a hill. This functionality comes courtesy the 6-axis motion sensor which does its job perfectly.
It can be used as a remote camera shutter to click amazing selfies with smartphone
The wearable has ability to capture selfies on your smartphone by controlling the camera trigger in the band itself. Along with that the centerpiece can be used as a standalone Bluetooth headset to make or receive calls. Other than this, the health tracker is equipped with the requisite hardware to perform all the basic fitness tracking functions like heart-rate monitoring, GPS tracker, sleep tracking and number of calories burnt in a day.
AS already mentioned, the basic sports version in black and white color will carry a price tag of $179, but there is going to be another plush version in gold-tone and leather design which is going to be priced higher.
