Following its debut way back at MWC in February, the Huawei TalkBand B1 is finally making its way to the U.S. this month.
Huawei pinged us today to announce that the TalkBand B1 will be available in the U.S. through GetHuawei.com, Newegg.com, Amazon.com and Fry’s Electronics starting November 14. Pricing for Huawei’s wearable will be set at $129.99.
As its name suggests, the TalkBand B1 is a wearable that can also help you conduct voice calls. It can do this because it’s got an embedded Bluetooth 4.1 earpiece that provides up to seven hours of talk time. The Bluetooth headset is compatible with Android 4.0 and higher as well as iOS 5.0 and higher.
When the TalkBand B1 is on your wrist and not in your ear, it can track your activity time, steps taken and calories burned. It’ll also track your sleep and can wake you up with its smart alarm feature.
The body of the TalkBand B1 is made of a sweat-resistant material and includes a 90mAh battery that is expected to last six days on a single charge. Also included is a 1.4-inch flexible OLED screen and a security feature that’ll alert you when your phone is more than 10 meters away from the synced TalkBand B1.
The wearables market is becoming increasingly crowded, and so the TalkBand B1 is Huawei’s attempt to make its wrist-worn gear stand out in the crowd. While the device certainly took its time to come stateside, it’s nice to see that the TalkBand B1 is finally coming to the U.S. to give consumers another wearable to choose from.
