First Looks

As shown in the earlier leaks, it has a 1.4-inch flexible OLED display on the band, but what hasn't been obvious until now is that it also supports wireless calling -- there's a removable earpiece tucked inside it, which explains the 14.6mm-thick bulk.

We spent a little time with the B1, and the functionality is very limited. Right now it tracks your steps, calories burned, how well you've slept, and of course lets you make phone calls. The 1.4-inch OLED display is black and white, similar to what we've seen on other fitness-oriented wearables.

It's a fitness tracker that pops out of its band and into your ear to act as a Bluetooth 4.1 headset. The fitness aspect of the TalkBand is pretty limited; it'll measure your steps, tell you how many hours you sleep for, and estimate how many calories you burn each day.

The Huawei Talkband B1 manages to separate itself from the competition by adding Bluetooth... It does so without adding masses of bulk. However, it might not have the convenience factor it needs, given to use it as a headset you need to remove it from a snug rubbery home on your wrist.

Aptly named the TalkBand B1, Huawei’s fitness tracker does more than simply work as a wrist-mounted pedometer and track your sleep, it also doubles as a Bluetooth headset. The device itself pops out of the wrist band and can be used to take calls.
