Tecno’s T-Band is the smartband launched alongside the Camon C9 about a month ago. Though not a smartwatch in the true sense of it, it still offers smart features a regular fitness band would offer.
Pairing with the Tecno Camon C9 up to a distance of 10metres via Bluetooth and also with the aid of the installed T-Band app in the Playstore, the T-Band is able to perform a host of different functions.
The T-Band is able to track your steps taken and walk/run activity via its speedometer sensors as well as notify you when you have been inactive/sedentary for awhile. One feature that also makes the T-Band tick is the remote camera control function. By placing your Camon C9 at a position within 10meters from the band, you’re able to remotely control the camera to take pictures of you or with your friends from a distance.
With the T-Band, you also don’t have to worry about missed calls, messages and notifications as its able to vibrate to inform you of incoming calls and messages. Its built-in security notification function enables you locate your phone if you can’t find it around you and vice versa with sound and vibration provided youre within the 10m distance, This it does by you pressing on its button and holding down for 3 seconds
The Tecno T-Band is indeed a great innovation for the Nigerian market and we can bet Tecno would be watching out to see how well it does. Maybe, the birth of a full fledged smartwatch from Tecno isn’t far fetched.
