Huawei's latest activity tracking wristband, the TalkBand B2 will not only keep a record of your steps, but clips apart to transform into a Bluetooth earpiece to take calls.

The design for the new version has been almost completely overhauled, with a new metallic finish and a gold with leather-effect strap available.

It's due to go on sale later this spring and should cost around £120 ($185, AU$236), although exact prices are yet to be announced.

It's easy to adjust and seemed comfortable in my hands on time.

It's lightweight and, thanks to the generously sized earpiece, sat comfortably in my ear.

Black and white versions are also available, but these come with more typical rubber straps, rather than the premium-looking leather.
