Huawei TalkBand B1 smartwatch announced with 6 day battery life, fitness tracking and more

Huawei TalkBand B1
Huawei has just unveiled its first smartwatch, the Huawei TalkBand B1,  at its MWC 2014 press event. The device features a 1.4 inch bendable OLED display, fitness tracking functions and a pop-out earpiece for voice calls. Neatly, the Huawei TalkBand B1 works with both Android (2.3 Gingerbread and later) and iOS (5.0 and later) devices.

The 1.4 inch OLED display itself looks like the screen found on fitness trackers like the Nike FuelBand, which makes this device look more like a fitness device than a smartwatch. Even its step counter, tracking for distance traveled, and amount of burned calories are features found on fitness devices.

The TalkBand B1 features a six-day battery life courtesy of the 90mAh juicer inside it and the low power display. It supports NFC for easy sync and pairing with devices, and you can pop-out the attached earpiece to talk. The bundled-in earpiece is what makes the band itself is so thick - it measures 14.6mm. And talktime via the earpiece is quoted at the impressive 7 hours.

The TalkBand B1 earpiece can be popped out and used separately

The Huawei TalkBand B1 is coming to China in March, whereas internationally it will launch in Japan, the Middle East, Russia and Western Europe in Q2 2014. The TalkBand B1 price is set at €99 (the equivalent of $135).
