Huawei announced a series of wearable devices at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2015) including the beautiful Huawei Watch, TalkBand B2 and TalkBand N1. In addition, the China tech giant also unveiled its next generation phablet, the dual-LTE MediaPad X2.

The Huawei TalkBand B1 was a popular device, and according to Huawei, was used daily by 87% of TalkBand B1 customers. The unique combination of a health tracker and Bluetooth headset makes the TalkBand B1 a one-of-its-kind product.

The Huawei TalkBand B2 rides on the popularity of its predecessor and improves on its looks as well as functionality. Its successor, the TalkBand B2, gets a more business-like, professional design with smarter fitness tracking and higher accuracy as well as enhanced synchronisation with mobile devices.

The health tracker is equipped with an advanced 6-axis sensor which can automatically identify and record motion accurately, detect deep sleep and light sleep duration, and provide health tips on ways to improve your sleep pattern.
