If nothing in the huge range of fitness trackers has managed to catch your eye yet, perhaps Huawei’s new entries in its TalkBand series can grab your attention.
First up, the TalkBand B2 is a direct successor to the company’s B1 fitness tracker, but this time with a more premium looking design. Along with the usual Bluetooth connectivity options, activity and sleep tracking, and familiar music controls, the B2 is actually quite a stylish tracker, with the silver and gold models both sporting a nice looking leather strap. As before, the TalkBand B2 also doubles up as removable Bluetooth headset, which is able to recognize when the Bluetooth earpiece is on the wristband or not, and switches audio to either the TalkBand or smartphone as required.
Along with the updated look, the TalkBand B2 also features an improved 6-axis sensor for more accurate movement tracking and is IP67 water and dust resistant. The tracker can last up to 5 days on a single charge and supports smartphones running Android 4.0 and up and iOS 7.0 or above.
Alongside the B2, Huawei has also announced its TalkBand N1, a pair of Bluetooth headphones that can also track your fitness. Here we’re looking at IP54 dust and water resistance and up to 3 days of battery life and five hours of hands-free call time. The N1 features an extra 4GB of internal memory to put some music on too, so it doesn’t rely solely on Bluetooth connectivity.
Huawei clearly wants to innovate on the standard fitness tracking band, and both the N1 and B2 are quite interesting products. The company’s first Android Wear smartwatch also looks very promising.
Huawei didn’t just unveil one wrist-worn wearable today; it announced two. Huawei has just announced its first ever Android Wear device and, appropriately enough, it’s called the Huawei Watch. As was teased and leaked over the past few days, the Watch looks to have a rather premium pedigree, with a circular display and a design that’s more reminiscent of a luxury timepiece than a geeky smartwatch. Boasting a sapphire crystal screen, the Watch is encased in stainless steel housing and you have the choice of either a metal or leather strap. It also has the usual sensors such as a heart rate monitor and fitness tracking.

Among its Mobile World Congress announcements, Huawei has unveiled a new, cellular enabled tablet, the MediaPad X2. At 7-inches we’d hesitate to call it a phone, but it has an earpiece and you can use it to make phone calls.
Tomorrow, Huawei will be one of the companies holding a press event at MWC 2015. Among the expected devices is the Huawei Watch that already exposed itself in Barcelona. Now, two promotional videos were posted on the company’s official YouTube account. The first video shows a man exploring a frigid and snowy environment with his Huawei Watch being a guide. The other involves Huawei employees providing insight to the Watch’s design. Both do highlight the elegance and technological prowess expected from the Huawei Watch.
Hit the break for the two videos.

Every time I see it, I get the distinct feeling that the Huawei Watch is going to give the Moto 360 a run for its money in the best looking smartwatch category. Spotted for the first time yesterday on a poster in Barcelona, the Huawei Watch now had its promo ads posted online, by Huawei no less, […]

Huawei has plans to unveil their first Android Wear-powered smartwatch, the Huawei Watch, at MWC 2015. Ahead of the company’s press event which will be held Sunday, March 1st, Huawei has released two new promotional videos showcasing the new watch. The videos were just recently posted on the company’s YouTube channel. The first, entitled “Huawei Watch: The timeless design story” features a few Huawei execs explaining their ideas behind the design of the watch. The second video, and arguably the cheesier of the two, is called “Huawei Watch: Your Ultimate Companion to Make It Possible”. This video shows a man trekking through the wilderness to catch up with his friends, Huawei Watch in tow.
Just based off of the promotional materials we’ve seen so far, this Huawei Watch may be the most attractive smartwatch out there. Performance aside the Watch has a small, completely round display, minimal bezels, a heart rate sensor, a sapphire display and interchangeable leather and metal straps. It seems to be less bulky than the Motorola Moto 360 and the LG G Watch R while still featuring a round display. But of course, performance will play a big role in whether or not the Watch is worth buying.
We don’t have any information on the exact specifications, price or release date quite yet, so we’ll have to wait until Sunday to get more information. While we wait, check out the two promo videos below to see if you’d consider this watch over the competition.
Huawei Watch: The timeless design story
Huawei Watch: Your Ultimate Companion to Make It Possible
So what do you think? Will this be your next Android Wear device?
This weekend will see the the arrival of new phones, tablets, wearables, and more as hardware manufacturers head out to Barcelona for MWC 2015. Spotted inside Barcelona Airport by incoming press members is the advertisement seen above. It shows an unannounced smartwatch belonging to Huawei promoted for everyone to see. That’s right, Huawei has exposed its own product prior to any sort of official announcement.
The advertisement displays what is called the Huawei Watch and the following tagline: “Timeless design. Smart within.” Below that, Huawei offers an explanation of both adjectives. The Huawei Watch is timeless because of its classic design while being smart due to Android Wear.
The device does look very classic and stylish, so it will be interesting to see where the Chinese company sets its price. Also, the watch faces seen in the advertisement match the class of the Huawei Watch’s design.

Till now, Huawei‘s contribution to the smartwatch market has only included some fitness-oriented devices like the TalkBand B1, but if these leaked ads are to be believed, the Huawei smartwatch that is able to be announced at MWC 2015, apparently called the Huawei Watch, could be a more conventional form factor and actually pretty gorgeous. […]
Yesterday it was leaked that the next Nexus phone would be made by a Chinese manufacturer, and today we might know who that is. Not only that, it appears that there might actually be two Nexus phones launched this year.
The same leaker is now saying there will be two Nexus phones, one produced by the said Chinese manufacturer, and the other by LG. This isn’t something that Google has done in the past, but it doesn’t sound so far fetched since we already have both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 available at the same time. If you take into account that Google cannot call the next Nexus phone the Nexus 7 for obvious reasons, it’s likely they will make new versions of both the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 6. This would keep most customers happy since not everyone wants a 6-inch phone. It would also solve the issue of having just one expensive Nexus phone. The Nexus 5 could be more budget-friendly and the Nexus 6 would be the premium-priced version.
The next question is who is that Chinese manufacturer? Well the leaker didn’t say, but he did divulge that the said manufacturer might use their own processor. As of right now, there is only one manufacturer that it could be. Huawei has their own Hisilcon Kirin chip.
So there you have it. LG and Huawei will make the next Nexus phones. I say that with a little chuckle because we are very early in the game so I wouldn’t bet a lot of money on it just yet, but it doesn’t sound all that crazy does it?

Huawei has taken the wraps off of a new Smartband device that features two industry-leading features. It’s the first ever LTE-enabled device of its kind, and it will utilize the company’s 4.5G network, which is labeled as being somewhere between 4G and 5G in terms of speed. The 4.5G network isn’t set to go live until next year, but this band is jumping on board earlier.
Aside from the connectivity, the band shares many features with Huawei’s current Smartband, including tons of health tracking sensors, NFC, Bluetooth, and a 1.4-inch OLED screen.
Expect to hear more about this band at MWC this year.
