Huawei wants in on the wearables category, or so it seems, as the Chinese company just announced its own fitness tracker at Mobile World Congress.

Aptly named the TalkBand B1, Huawei’s fitness tracker does more than simply work as a wrist-mounted pedometer and track your sleep, it also doubles as a Bluetooth headset. The device itself pops out of the wrist band and can be used to take calls.

The 1.4-inch OLED display is not a touchscreen, so navigation is done via various button presses, and the device itself can be managed through an application on your smartphone.

With NFC pairing, Bluetooth 4.1, and a 90mAh battery, the TalkBand B1 is rated at approximately six days of usage. It’s also IP57 water-resistant and dust-proof. And it’s being sold alongside the MediaPad X1 for only 99 euros (or just over $135 USD).
