The TalkBand B2 is the legitimate successor to last year's B1 activity tracker, and comes with upgraded functionality and 6-axis tracking.

The Huawei Watch, first announced this month, is the company's first ever attempt at making a high-end timepiece. No doubt, the Huawei Watch has the potential to drastically change the smartwatch market.

The  Huawei Watch is far more more sober looking when compared to the Apple Watch or any other intelligent timepiece available onto market today. If the company really wants to push its premium wearable beyond a certain target audience - Huawei Watch will need to be priced below Rs. 17,000.
