In case you have forgotten what specs the Huawei Y5 has, you can view the full rundown of specs below:

  • 4.5″ FWVGA Display (480 x 854)
  • 1.1 GHz Quad-core Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage, expandable to 32GB via microSD
  • 5MP Rear Camera, 2MP Front Facing
  • Android 5.1 (Lollipop)
  • Network Connectivity:
    • 2G: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
    • 3G: 850/1900/2100 MHz
    • 4G: 700/1800/2600/2100 MHz
  • Dimensions: 135.9 × 67.7 × 10.0 mm @ 151 grams

As part of Telstra’s focus on wearables however, the Huawei Colorband can be purchased separately from the deal through the Telstra Wearables website. The Colorband includes a sleep and step tracker, as well as smart vibrating alarm to wake you in the morning. The band can also be used as a remote shutter for your phone. Like all good fitness trackers should, the Colorband is also water and dust resistant with an IP57 rating and it comes in blue or red.

Given that the Y5 was originally available at the same price just for the device, having a sweetener of a fitness band seems like a pretty damn good deal.
