China has already become a real symbol of absurd inventions. It feels like conventional manufacturers' brainstorming ends at the planning stage. Then the product is approved and put into production. The brainstorming of the Chinese does not end and they are ready to come up with something that ordinary people think is simply madness. On the other hand, they can be respected at least for the fact that they thereby promote unusual ideas, many of which take root and become new niche products. Who, besides the Chinese, can come up with a fitness bracelet that can be inserted into the ear?
What are you, Huawei Talkband B6?
New bracelet Huawei
More recently, an image of a gadget that the company is working on Huawei appeared on Weibo. It will reportedly be named Huawei Talkband B6. As the name implies, it will be some kind of “conversational bracelet”. Well, judging by the picture that accompanies the recording, it really will be exactly what is encrypted in its name.
In fact, this is not the first such experience of the company in the release of something like this. This is a whole line that was released earlier, it is just that it is little known to users, since it does not enter the international markets en masse.
In fact, this is really a fitness bracelet that can turn into a Bluetooth headset. It is simply removed from the strap and placed in your ear so you can talk without taking your phone out of your pocket.
What's new in Huawei Talkband B6
Compared to its predecessor, the new Huawei Talkband B6 has a much larger display than its predecessor. This is important for a tracker, which also functions as a watch. This way he can show more information.
In general, interesting, albeit unusual.
This device comes with multiple watch faces. The display shows the time and date, weather and calories burned. It also shows your heart rate, steps, distance and battery level. Not bad for a Bluetooth – headset that is attached to your arm?
To be worn on the arm Huawei, the TalkBand B6 will have several strap options. According to the leak, there are likely to be silicone and leather options. There will be at least two colors – red and black. Surely third-party manufacturers will produce their counterparts, and besides two (or maybe more) original straps, there will be non-original ones. This is good, as the straps are what allows you to “tweak” the design of any wearable device to the style you want at the moment.
Chipset Huawei Kirin A1
According to the information that has appeared, the new bracelet will come with the Kirin A1 chipset – a proprietary solution of the company. Kirin A1 is the first wearable chip Huawei to support wireless audio equipment and smartwatches. It is certified to operate under Bluetooth 5.1 and Bluetooth Low Power 5.1.
The size of the chip is only 4.3 x 4.4 mm, but at the same time it combines a processing unit Bluetooth and audio. So that the connection is not interrupted and the conversation can continue even with a weak signal and a bad connection, Huawei uses in its processor the technology of two-channel synchronous transmission developed by the company. Whatever that means, it's worth hoping that the technology will actually work.
Kirin A1 is made specifically for wearable devices.
This technology will not only allow you to maintain a connection even in conditions of a weak signal, but also provide some other advantages. For example, power consumption should be reduced by 50% and transmission delay by 30%. In addition, Kirin A1 uses a unique technology Bluetooth – the BT-UHD Ultra HD codec with a maximum bandwidth of up to 6.5 Mbps. This significantly increases the transfer rate, which is 2.8 times the standard transfer rate of Bluetooth (2.1 Mbps).
Based on the characteristics of Kirin A1, TalkBand B6 can provide stable and smooth connection, excellent sound quality and intelligent noise cancellation. This makes these headphones an open active noise canceling headset.
Do I need a bluetooth headset now
In fact, in our age of TWS headphones that do not require any wires, simply plug into the ears and automatically connect to the smartphone themselves, having a separate headset no longer makes much sense. Nowadays, no one needs a gadget, which is needed only to talk on the phone. It is much easier to use headphones, especially since there are very inexpensive ones among them, but you just need to get them out of the charging case and you can at least listen to music, at least talk on the phone.
In the case of Huawei Talkband B6 we have a slightly different device. First of all, this is a fitness bracelet that can perform all the functions of a tracker and watch, but when needed, it turns into a headset. Some smartwatches offer the ability to answer calls, but you will have to talk hands-free, which is not always convenient. Right there you just need to get the earpiece out of the bracelet, insert it into your ear and you can talk. There's something about it. Let's discuss this in our Telegram chat.
