Components and appearance Huawei TalkBand B1
The device comes in the original box. Huawei even drew carefully the instructions on the “tongue” of the box, so you can fold it correctly. Acquisition devices is minimal, to be honest, I initially thought that there is nothing except the bracelet and is not, and only a few days later guessed open bottom drawer, which I thought was a decorative, there I was able to find the user manual, and two removable mounting.
Huawei TalkBand B1 review consists of two parts: the first – rubberized bracelet gray c touch-point texture in the sale will have black, white, blue, yellow and pink color options as well as in two sizes – small for people with wrist between 135 -170 mm and great for those with a size between 160-200 mm.

Interesting design solutions that will make a bracelet Huawei TalkBand B1 review such a form that it looked organically in your ear now as a headset.
At the edge of the strap is closed with USB-output. I must say that on the one hand it is a very convenient solution. Along with Gear Fit, for example, is a private station with microUSB-input for charging, which is very easy to lose, here have absolutely nothing to lose. On the other, purely visual side, there is a claim to what looks like a bracelet on the charge – it just sticks out of the USB-port, it looks strange. Himself bracelet has six mounts for different size hands and clasp with two teeth on the back of which is the logo Huawei. The clasp is made of polished metal, and, unfortunately, due to frequent contact with the surface scratches not it inevitable.
The second and main part of this design – a pill that has a OLED-screen diagonal of 1.4″. Its resolution is unknown, but the picture looks pretty pixel. On the back side there are the contacts for the connection with the bracelet and earpiece.
