Huawei TalkBand B3 is a hybrid wearable which combines the functions of a fitness tracker and a Bluetooth headset. The third-generation offering in the Huawei TalkBand range is designed for better health tracking and clearer calling capability.
Design and Display
The same design language of the TalkBand B2 is retained here. But the Huawei TalkBand B3 comes in three different models, based on the choice of strap used, namely: Classic, Active and Elite.
The Huawei Talkband B3 Classic variant offers brown and beige leather options, while the Active will be more appropriate for those often involved in sweaty activities or conditions with a sporty black and white rubber straps.
The highest-end Huawei TalkBand B3 Elite offers titanium grey and black metal strap options.
The smartband is fitted with a 0.7-inch touch display which is based on PMOLED technology for crisp clarity.
The screen has a resolution of 128 x 80 pixels and is protected by scratch-resistant 3D Corning Gorilla Glass. It is supported by sturdy stainless steel frame.
Features and Capability
The Huawei TalkBand B3 is first a fitness tracker and is decked out to do virtually what an average offering can. It is designed to automatically sense and adjust to whatever physical activities you may be engaged in.
A Capsensor feature lets the tracker intelligently know when it is worn on the wrist, with Huawei saying this will help ensure better sleep tracking.
Like its predecessor, the Huawei TalkBand B3 is built to enable users pop out the screen from the strap. You can open the earpiece, which comes integrated with microphone and speaker, and use as a Bluetooth headset.
Its Chinese maker says the high-grade CSR chip and noise-cancelling algorithm used in the device guarantees superb audio capability.
The Huawei TalkBand B3 lets you keep your favourite contacts at your fingertips with its speed-dial phonebook.
It also provides you with weather information. The wearable is friendly with devices running Android (v4.3 or above) and iOS (v7.0 or above) operating systems. It is IP57-certified meaning it is protected against water and dust.
