Razer shows off Nabu fitness companion

Posted on Tuesday, January 07 2014 @ 17:11:32 CET by


Razer makes an unexpected entry into the smartwatch market at CES by revealing Nabu. This new device is a hybrid of a fitness tracking band and a smartwatch. Nabu offers two notification screens and can provide wellness data and smartphone notifications. Availability is slated for March, the development kits cost just $49 but the consumer version is expected to cost more.
The larger outer screen is used to show alerts, which you can shake your wrist to dismiss, while the inner display can be used to show more detailed information about incoming calls or other activities. On the fitness side of things, the Nabu tracks steps walked, distance travelled, and it will monitor your sleep too. Inside is an accelerometer, altimeter and cylindrical vibration motor.

The ability to monitor sleep gives a clue as to this being a slim, lightweight, rubberised device meant to be worn at all times. It uses Bluetooth 4.0 LE for communication and has a suggested battery life of 7-10hrs - hardly conducive to non-stop wearing - while it is also rated as rain and splash proof.
