The Tecno T-band is the first smart wristband from TECNO and is bundled with Camon C9
The wearable technology movement has continued to gain speed over the years leaving many customers with options for home use, bring your own device, and even exercise.
Being able to reap the benefits of wearable technology at home or in the workplace has changed the shape of how we access customer information or track our fitness and well-being.
The latest company to introduce this device is TECNO MOBILE. The Tecno T-band is the first smart wristband from TECNO and is bundled with Camon C9 which is only available for free for those who earlier pre-ordered the Tecno Camon C9.
The T-Band works with the app; It can be downloaded from Google playstore, but if you have the Camon C9, this app should come pre-installed on your device. You will be required to create an account on the app to start using the T-Band.
After this, you can connect the T-Band to your smartphone by holding the T-Band button for 10 seconds via Bluetooth.
Once connected to your device, you can now track your sleep patterns, number of steps taken per day, receive notifications on the T-Band and even set an alarm.
