The Razer Nabu smartband was originally launched back at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 and since then the company has received a lot of feedback on features that users liked and the aspects that needed to be improved. Razer took in all of that feedback and re-designed the Nabu and that’s why it has now relaunched the wearable device.
This device was only given a limited release in 2014 due to some problems with the production process and the fact that Razer decided to move on to the Nabu X.
Razer has shown now that it hasn’t forgotten about the original Nabu smartband, the new one is slightly redesigned and features a changed button placement for a more intuitive user experience.
It has all of the core features from the original product such as tracking steps, distance, active minutes and calories burned, it’s also capable of sleep tracking. Nabu also has a band-to-band communication feature which is quite unique, this allows two Nabu users to exchange contact information and initiate friend requests with just a handshake.
Razer will start taking pre-orders for the new Nabu from September 15th, it’s priced at $99 and shipments will start this October. Razer hasn’t confirmed pricing and availability details for countries other than the United States yet.
