nabu-x[CES 2015] It was exactly one year ago when Razer debuted their Razer Nabu, being an entrant to the smartband market. Well, now that a dozen months have passed, gaming peripherals specialist Razer has come up with the sequel, so to speak, of the Razer Nabu X, which would be an entry level smartband complete with notification features, the ability to keep track of your fitness, as well as social functions.

All set to ship later this month to qualified Razer Insiders in the U.S. and over in Europe for $19.99 a pop, this is a great price considering the recommended retail price tag stands at $49.99 each. The Razer Nabu X will arrive in a discreet form factor, where it will have a trio of colored LED indicators and vibrations that will be able to alert users of any notifications that your smartphone receives.

Not only that, it will also play nice with the full suite of third-party developed applications that are readily available on the Nabu Marketplace. The Nabu X’s sensor module will hold a highly precise accelerometer, where it works in tandem with finely tuned algorithms so that it can offer the most accurate activity data for its users. There will be a vibration motor for silent notification that does not announce to the world that you have a new email or text message. Sporting a soft-rubber finish, it boasts of extensive water resistance, and a one-size-fits-all watch-like strap. [Press Release]
