Huawei today announced its latest wearable device, HUAWEI TalkBand B5, the fourth generation of Huawei’s TalkBand products and the successor to HUAWEI TalkBand B3 launched in 2016. Equipped with a 1.13-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with 2.5D curved glass and 160 × 300 pixels resolution, the HUAWEI TalkBand B5’s display is 2.4 times bigger than the previous one.
Like its predecessors, HUAWEI TalkBand B5 is a 2-in-1 hybrid device, functioning as a smart Bluetooth headset and smarter health tracker. Users will be able to monitor their health on a daily basis, and be certain not to have missed a call even when in meetings, exercising or catching a flight. The wearable comes with stylish and premium straps offered in sport, fashion and business editions.
Positioned as the perfect companion to consumers’ mobile devices, HUAWEI TalkBand B5 is built with the industry’s first triple-core audio chip, dual-MIC noise reduction technology and high quality Bluetooth connectivity for pure and clear sound effects. The HUAWEI TalkBand B5 integrates with Phone Finder to help users locate their lost or misplaced device within Bluetooth range, and Remote Shutter which lets consumers take photos remotely.
Powered by HUAWEI TruSeen heart rate technology, HUAWEI TalkBand B5 offers 24/7 continuous heart tracking and monitoring when running, treadmill running, walking, indoor cycling, riding and freestyle training. HUAWEI Trusleep tracking technology, which was certified by the CDB center at Harvard Medical School, can precisely monitor different stages of sleep including light and deep sleep, REM sleep stage, and wakefulness to provide users with an intimate sleep care.
The HUAWEI TalkBand B5 is IP57 water and dust resistance so it works in rain and snow conditions, as well as being sweat resistant and functioning whilst washing hands.
The device will go on sale in China from 20 July, and will be available in UAE, Saudi Arabia and other markets from August, 2018.
