The TalkBand B1 features a six-day battery life courtesy of the 90mAh juicer inside it and the low power display. It supports NFC for easy sync and pairing with devices, and you can pop-out the attached earpiece to talk. The bundled-in earpiece is what makes the band itself is so thick - it measures 14.6mm. And talk time via the earpiece is quoted at the impressive 7 hours.

The 1.4” OLED screen itself looks more like displays on fitness trackers like the Nike FuelBand, and the TalkBand B1 overall looks much more like a fitness wristband than a watch. That’s also backed up by its features - a step counter, tracking for distance traveled, and amount of burned calories. In addition, it can track your sleep and use that information to wake you up at the best time, without abruptly interrupting your deep sleep cycles.
The Huawei TalkBand B1 is coming to China in March, whereas internationally it will launch in Japan, the Middle East, Russia and Western Europe in Q2 2014. The TalkBand B1 price is set at €99 (the equivalent of $135).
