The Best of Mobile World Congress 2014: Huawei TalkBand B1
Finally, here’s one of the stranger combos revealed at Mobile World Congress 2014.
Huawei is getting into the fitness band game. (At this point, who isn’t?) But in order to stand out from the pack, the company’s TalkBand B1 combines a wrist-mounted fitness tracker with a Bluetooth headset.
The headset is actually mounted on the wristband and pops off so you can use it to make handsfree calls (when paired with a smartphone, of course). I’m not exactly sure why it’s better to have to detach and fumble with the headset as opposed to pulling out your smartphone, but if a combo fitness tracker/Bluetooth earpiece was on your wish list, you are now covered.
As of this writing, Brad Moon did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
