Huawei TalkBand B2 now available in the U.S.
Powerful, hybrid wearable device offers advanced fitness tracking and rich functionality.
Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology solutions provider, today announced that its TalkBand B2, a stylish next-generation wearable device, will be available in the U.S. beginning this week. Designed for smart living, the hybrid device includes automatic activity tracking, sleep monitoring and crystal-clear hands-free calling.
Consumers can purchase TalkBand B2 starting at $179 on GetHuawei.com, Amazon.com, and in-store and online at Fry’s Electronics beginning this week. The TalkBand B2 will also be coming soon to BestBuy.com. Sporting a premium design that focuses on comfort, style and everyday elegance, the TalkBand B2 is available in three styles – black and white sport versions, and a gold-tone body with leather band model.
Contained in Huawei TalkBand B2’s unique design is a full-featured fitness tracker. The innovative 6-axis motion sensor automatically identifies what sort of exercise the user is doing— whether it’s walking, running, cycling or hill climbing — and Huawei’s intelligent calorie-tracking technology reports on how many extra calories have been burned.
Thanks to Huawei’s new partnership with UP® by Jawbone, TalkBand B2 users can now choose to send their fitness data to the UP Smart Coach app, which transforms TalkBand B2 data into personalized fitness advice. In addition, the UP system can connect with more than 3,000 other applications that help consumers do everything from monitoring workouts to connecting their home thermostat.
While Huawei’s TalkBand B2 provides fitness enthusiasts with all the essential data they need to monitor and improve their well-being and performance, the device is also a great companion for everyday life. The TalkBand B2 can be used as a hands-free Bluetooth headset, with a high-performance speaker and Dual Mic noise suppression that delivers excellent call quality.
The TalkBand B2 also helps consumers take control of their busy lives by integrating helpful features they can control right from their wrists.
