Do you love the Jawbone UP ecosystem but hate that the UP bands don’t perform basic duties like tell the time or show how many steps you’ve taken without syncing? If so, then you need a Huawei TalkBand B2; this smartband packs a ton of features into a slim package, and as of today it now has Jawbone UP compatibility!
Did you catch what’s in the photo above? That’s a bluetooth headset that also goes on your wrist as a smartband. Pretty cool, right?
Designed for smart living, the hybrid device includes automatic activity tracking, sleep monitoring and crystal-clear hands-free calling.
So on top of being able to monitor all of your fitness information, well — except for heart rate, the TalkBand B2 can also be used as a hands-free Bluetooth headset. It has a “high- performance speaker and Dual Mic noise suppression that delivers excellent call quality.”
The TalkBand B2 price will start at $179 on GetHuawei.com, Amazon, in-store and online at Fry’s Electronics beginning this week. You’ll also be able to buy them at Best Buy soon.
The Huawei TalkBand B2 works with Android 4.0 and above devices as well as iOS 7.0 and above. The Huawei Wear app synchronizes with Apple’s Health app, but best of all, as of today it will integrate with the Jawbone UP ecosystem.
