Huawei TalkBand promises call feature on wrist
(02-25 10:35)

Hours after Samsung launched the Gear 2 smart watch, Huawei revealed a connected watch of its own at the mobile fair in Barcelona, Spain.
Huawei, the world number three smartphone maker in 2013, showed off its TalkBand, to be sold for 99 euros. It comes with a wireless earpiece and a USB in the strap.
South Korean manufacturer LG said on the same day that it would launch its first smartwatch in 2014.
Sony revealed its Xperia Z2 smartphone Monday, the first new edition of its flagship device since it announced this month the sale of its stagnant PC business to focus instead on smartphones and tablets.
The waterproof phone, available from March, has a full high definition 5.2-inch screen and a 20.7 megapixel camera that can take ultra-high resolution 4K video, along with noise-cancelling audio.
The struggling Japanese group also entered the fray for wearable devices, releasing the SmartBand SWR10, a bracelet that comes with an application allowing users to log events and photographs taken during the day as well as tracking how far they walk and checking their sleep cycle.—AFP
