Huawei’s TalkBand N1 wants desperately to be fashionable

Huawei has a new set of Bluetooth headphones that also serve as a fitness tracker, and it’s hoping you’ll like it so much that you’ll wear it as a necklace even when you’re not working out. The Huawei TalkBand N1 isn’t the first paid of Bluetooth headphones we’ve ever seen, but they’re certainly some of the smallest: just 18g despite including active noise cancelation and a nifty magnetic clasp which holds the earbuds together around your neck when they’re not in your ears.

Huawei TalkBand B2 hands-on: Double-duty wearable

Last year, Huawei tried to convince us that we needed a combination Bluetooth headset and activity tracker; for MWC 2015, it’s the turn of its glamorous sibling, the Huawei TalkBand B2. Hewn from metal and leather rather than the plastic of its B1 predecessor, and targeting wearers who might be looking to replace a traditional watch rather than fitness band, the TalkBand B2 is fronted with a 0.73-inch AMOLED display, while inside there’s a self-learning algorithm that claims to cut down on fake readings.

Jawbone cites manufacturing for recent UP3 delay

Jawbone cites manufacturing for recent UP3 delay

Jawbone's UP3 health tracker is having difficulties again before coming to market. The release date has been pushed back before. The third generation health tracker device was originally slated to be ready by the end of 2014. The company has been seized with delays, missing crucial opportunities like the 2014-2015 holiday shopping season. The newly announced 10-11 week delay would put the UP3's release in May. Hopefully, all of the new additions to the UP3 will keep it ahead of the curve in the competitive health tracker device market. Such a delay gives room to competitors to up their stake in the market.

The Beolit 15 is the latest speaker system from the Scandinavian high end audio company Bang and Olufsen. This is one powerful speaker, even if it looks just like a small picnic basket.

Automatic’s Link v2 gets FCC nod (and ace new packaging)

A second generation Automatic dongle, the Link2, has been spotted passing through FCC testing, ahead of plugging into your car's dashboard and piping driving stats to your phone. The Bluetooth dongle is outwardly identical to the existing model, which translates data on car status, driving style, fuel economy and more to a companion app for iPhone or Android, and currently there's no clear indication of what might have improved in functionality. In fact, the most exciting part right now looks like Automatic's new packaging design, which might actually have some legitimate usefulness to save it from landfill.
