Huawei TalkBand B2 Test

Last year, Huawei tried to unite – a very clever idea, which unfortunately failed due to the poor implementation a Fitnesstracker and a Bluetooth headset in a gadget with the talk band B1. Its successor, the 2015 unveiled at MWC talk band B2, preparing now with higher quality materials and nobler design, to make you forget about the mistakes of his predecessor. We tried the $199-expensive premium version of B2.

Huawei TalkBand B2 Test

First is what watching the talk band B2 in comparison with the predecessor: other than the B1 the B2 no longer looks like a typical fitness bracelet made of rubber and plastic, but actually like a chic watch. Our premium version comes with leather strap, modish version for the Bluetooth headset and a mechanically as visually compelling closure. The tracker and the headset itself though largely consists of coloured plastic, but at least its lateral margins are also metal and especially the mirrored display that is only recognizable as such, if it discreetly lit, make the talk band B2 a Catcher should be identified by most viewers from almost as vile Fitness tracker.

It applies to at least the $199-expensive premium version. The slightly cheaper with 169 euro black and white versions of the B2 come with sporty rubber strap, but repeated the mistake of its predecessor thanks to the newly added loop at the inner end, constantly- and to stand out. The version and the headset itself correspond to the more expensive leather Edition up on the color scheme as well as these variants. The B2 to B1 is optically and mechanically so a huge step forward.

Work tracking and telephony

The talk band B2 has two technical tasks: it should log the steps or activities of the user, as well as his sleep phases and Act also as a Bluetooth headset. In particular the masters better than even the B1 the water-resistant and dust to IP57 B2.

The talk band without Bluetooth connection with your phone logs done steps, calories burned, and sleepy hours reliably, the user can retrieve these numbers by wiping it on the small display. Alternatively, and more extensive the Huawei wear app prepares the data after synchronization with the talk band and also allows for the adjustment of alerts – for example, when the disconnection of bracelet and Smartphone – and alarm clocks. To the small 0.73 inch display of the B2, which dissolves pixels monochrome 128 x 88, is worth mentioning that it is but often very difficult to read is not necessarily in the switched off though as mentioned quite subtly the silvery shining surface hidden behind, which may help the noble impression of talk bands, whether its low luminosity outdoors in the sunshine – a virtue for a Fitnesstracker.

I have not exactly appropriate for – basically displayed ways came to me but correct, albeit with a slight slope to the exaggeration, as the talk band B2 Meanwhile steps and set back distances protokoliert. Fitness claims aside: If you want, can trigger the camera of connected Smartphone with the talk volume, as long as the associated app is already open – in my test with Huawei’s new P8 which works mostly promptly and easily. And an extra treat is that the user has the choice of eight specified Watchfaces by pressing and holding on the screen with the topschoolsintheusa.

My biggest gripe with the talk band B1 at the time was that the Bluetooth headset neither haptic nor in terms of voice quality was able to convince – the B2 copes much better both aspects: the headset removable from the bracelet sits safer and more comfortable in the ear than its predecessor. By small interruptions at the beginning, I had no problems with the B2 also during a telephone conversation: I understood my interlocutors in the frame of the audio qualities are expected – of such a gadget, and you as well.

With only 95 mAh battery of talk band seems downright tiny; as expected in the device but no demanding processor and the display in terms of hunger for energy is also very modest, the talk band B2 keeps approximately three to four days on one charge. Then the tracker item can be brought back by a micro-USB port at the bottom with a commercially available charger of one and a half hours on full capacity.

Conclusion: Good and chic – but for whom?

The question remains open for me according to the target group of the talk band B2. The gadget is so chic, the idea of Bluetooth headsets in the Fitnesstracker also seems so convenient – for around 200 euros there is Sony’s SmartWatch 3 for 30 euros more Asus’ already ZenWatch. These are both full-featured Android wear devices that provide a color display and support different apps.

Steps can be count and make calls with the talk band B2. Individually, you get two good gadgets that serve both purposes, significantly less expensive. Thus, the talk band B2 seems actually just for users who exactly want to know packaged combination of Tracker, Bluetooth headset, and that – especially in the case of the premium variant – with a significant look. The fun must be those but then 199 euros worth.

Or as a colleague of mine put it: “Cool, chic and clever part – if this would cost 120 euros, I’d buy it…”
