The wristband + core body design is still the selling point of the Huawei TalkBand B5. That’s why the body can be used as a Bluetooth headset. This feature not only brings more convenience but also greatly improves work efficiency. For example, it is not convenient to use the smartphone during the meeting. So you can still check the voice messages through the Huawei TalkBand B5. In addition, the Huawei B5 Bluetooth headset function also supports caller ID identification.
The band comes with a built-in triple-core audio chip that supports dual-MIC noise reduction. Even in noisy environments such as airports and high-speed rail stations, high-definition voice calls can be obtained. Plus, there is a 108mAh battery, providing up to 6 hours of talk time.

Apart from all the aforementioned features, the band supports HUAWEI TruRelax technology. By analyzing heart rate variability, it can accurately assess the wearer’s stress status and provide biofeedback breathing training service to help users release pressure regulation status.
The Huawei TalkBand B5 also uses a HUAWEI TruSleep 2.0 sleep monitoring feature. Through the principle of cardiopulmonary coupling dynamics frequency analysis technology, it can monitor the complete sleep structure and identify 6 typical sleep problems. Then, it will suggest personalized sleep services to improve sleep quality.
