Huawei celebrated one of the biggest launch parties in recent years last Thursday. The Chinese presented the Huawei P60 series, the Mate X3, the Watch Ultimate, the MatePad 11, the Enjoy 60 and the FreeBuds 5 and the FreeBuds Pro 2+. Another device almost got overlooked – the new Huawei TalkBand B7. The successor to the TalkBand B6 is a mix of smartband and Bluetooth earphones and brings a largely unchanged design, but with some minor technical changes.
The Huawei TalkBand B7 has a 1.53-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 188 x 460 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 326 ppi. The wearable features a stainless steel body, a Kirin A1 chipset and pairing via Bluetooth 5.2. According to Huawei, the algorithm for reducing call noise has been improved, and there are also two microphones on board for better voice pickup. The bracelet can also monitor heart rate and blood oxygen levels, and offers sports tracking for ten different sports.
Just like its predecessor, the Huawei TalkBand B7 charges via a regular USB-C cable. The battery of the Huawei-Smartband lasts for two full days of mixed use. But ten minutes of charging gets you four hours of additional use. The entire package is IP57 certified for protection against water and dust.
The Huawei TalkBand B7 is available in Luminous Black and Sky Gray colors. Priced at 999 CNY (€135/$145) the wearable is already on sale in China. Huawei has yet to announce international availability.
