Test: Huawei Talkband B2

Combination products is rarely better than separate pieces, but Huawei is doing as best as they can.

We scratched a little bit in my head and felt us split between to wonder why and think why not when we got to see Huawei Talkband B1 last year. The wristband acts as a simple pedometer and in conversation, you have the option to click off a whole Bluetooth headset out of the arm band to manage calls. When we tested the unit last year, we could well say that more was a fun idea than anything revolutionary. The problem with many combination products (which modern smartphones really stands out as the exception that proves the rule in many cases) is that its individual pieces rarely are better or as good as the dedicated machines and it was true even with Talkband B1.


Now it is time to greet the sequel B2, which has exactly the same basic features but with a great deal of effort on the design. This particular model we test are the slightly more expensive metallvarianten with leather band, but there is also a plastic release that is a bit more like last year’s model.

Headset
In view of the appliance, we simply look at its individual parts separately. As armbandsburet headsets make it decently well. The unit’s display shows up who’s calling, but longer than that do not extend the possibilities for notification at all, despite the fact that it is a screen on the device, and although there is a slight vibration engine built-in to alert when someone calls.

The mount works really smoothly and you disconnect the cochlea by pressing a button on each side of the unit. The bracelet itself is nothing more than a passive docking with the two buttons and any form of charge port, battery and electronics are in the cochlea.

There are two disadvantages of Talkband B2 as a headset. On the other hand, there is only one response button on the device. Do you want to increase or decrease the volume of the call, you kind find your phone, which you probably have hidden at the bottom of the bag with this thing esten on her arm.

The other drawback is purely physical. With a couple of different accompanying ear pads and a small rubber hook, you can certainly get fixed the cochlea in the ear to keep a sensible conversation, but the limited space in the bracelet doll does not direct that there is room for a sensible fixture. This makes the fit will never be as great as with a “real” headset.

Once in place, should we not, however, say that neither we nor the interlocutors have anything negative to say about the sound quality.We might not go to call it class-leading, but to shovel intelligible speech between two people can handle it without problems.

Step counters
As a pedometer, there are some really clever features with Talkband B2 that not even some dedicated pedometer can boast. Second, the a small vibrating reminder that reminds you when you sat still for too long. In addition to this you don’t need to worry about to turn over to a particular sleep mode to record stuff, without the band understood it myself. Construction with removable headset, however, makes it quite thick and the design overall is very edgy, so to suggest that it is uncomfortable to sleep with is this year’s understatement.
As a pedometer, it acts much like Samsung’s bracelet, that is okay, but not more. There are never any real consensus on whether it counts too few or too many steps in the comparison with the Fitbit and the Garmin watch we compare with, but sometimes is the accurate, sometimes quite far behind, and sometimes a bit before.Overall, more than a week, however, it becomes “type” law and because the activity meter should only be used as any sort of benchmark, it is seen as approved anyway.

The device itself is controlled via the reply button on the page by swiping across the screen to change your view of the data. In addition to a couple of different clocks, there is not much to set up here, but you can see the time and some basic steps data quite easily.
Huawei Wear called app you use to communicate with the band against Ios or Android (Windows Phone can connect it as a headset, but does not have a app to download steps and sleep log). The app itself is a rather sad piece health coach, who really only shows how many steps you went or how long you been sleeping and not really so much more. At the same time, we understand that Huawei’s main business is not to build health products, and then it’s good that they solved it all that they have done.

In the app you can connect you to the Myfitnesspal to transfer your steps data there and see them in relationship to your diet and weight curve. Recently released Huawei also Jawbone in the whole thing, which makes steps data can be synced to the service and which are deposited in a larger context around your workout. The same function is to, among other things, the Pebbles watches, but this feels extra worth it so to speak. This particular variant that just collect data and then share it on to others who proved makes it better feel like quite the right way to go with this type of stuff and there is no type all mobile manufacturers ought to at least give the opportunity to.
Finally, it should be said that battery life, if you are using the headset as well, for obvious reasons does not come up in some two weeks as some other step counting bands, but we never know that we need to load the tape every day either. You will of course need to if you talk a lot, but it applies to all headsets.

In conclusion, we can say little about the unit as a whole. For we must admit we like the design sharp (except when we’re going to sleep with it) and the combination of metal and leather is both well-built and exclusive without being too much.
