The Latest Addition to Huawei’s Wearable Lineup: TalkBand B7

Huawei demonstrated its continued strength in the mobile business on March 23, despite suffering some setbacks due to the US ban. To remain competitive in a crowded market, the company launched the new Huawei P60 flagship series with advanced camera technology, as well as a foldable smartphone called the Huawei Mate X3. In addition, Huawei also introduced several wearable devices, including the Huawei TalkBand B7, which has made a strong impression in the smart band segment. The question is, can the Mi Band series compete with it? Let’s explore further.

Speaking of the Huawei TalkBand B7, the device remains true to its design heritage and is a highly sought-after item for enthusiasts in the segment. It serves as a successor to the TalkBand B6, which combines a smartband with a Bluetooth earpiece. Although it didn’t receive much attention during the Huawei keynote, the device has some hardware changes while retaining the same design.

When it comes to design, Huawei maintains its luxurious style in the segment, opting for a stunning 1.53-inch AMOLED screen instead of a modest display with limited functionality. With a pixel density of 326 ppi and a resolution of 188 x 460 pixels, the screen is both beautiful and functional. The Huawei TalkBand B7 is housed in a stainless steel casing and powered by the Kirin A1 CPU, equipped with Bluetooth 5.2. One of the most notable improvements is the call noise reduction, which utilizes a new algorithm to ensure clearer voice pickup through its two microphones.

The Huawei TalkBand B7 also includes heart rate and blood oxygen level monitoring, as well as sports tracking for up to 10 activities. The wearable has a battery life of up to two days with mixed usage and supports fast charging, with a 10-minute charge providing an additional 4 hours of use. Charging is done via a USB Type-C cable, and the device has an IP57 rating for water and dust resistance.

The Huawei TalkBand B7 is available in two color options: Luminous Black and Sky Gray, and is priced at CNY 999 ($145). Currently, the wearable is available for open sale in China, and we anticipate it will eventually reach global markets, although the company has not yet released any official details.

In China, the Huawei TalkBand B7 will face significant competition from dozens of similar devices. Nonetheless, it may be easier for a Huawei smart band to compete in the market than it is for a Huawei smartphone given recent challenges faced by the company.
