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 fitness band, with a companion app that tracks your steps, calories and sleep — but one little extra thing the TalkBand does (tipped by its name) is swiftly convert into a Bluetooth headset for talking on your phone.

It’s a combination of two different categories — one on the rise in popularity and the other on the decline — that many wouldn’t really think of combining into a single device. But when you think about it it does make sense, particularly if you’re someone who has the need for regular fitness tracking and longer hands-free calls.

The Huawei TalkBand B1 is a strange mash-up, to be sure, but does it actually work well enough to justify a $ 129 price? Read along for our full review and find out.
