It’s almost upon us, the Razer Nabu fitness band, which is of course Razer’s entry into the fitness device market. Razer is known for its laptop and PC accessories and its support of the PC gaming culture, so this is a very different type of niche for them. But they are hoping that their street cred will carry over to this new effort.
The Razer Nabu Smartband was first launched to the public at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January this year, and was warmly received, with a couple of awards under its belt after the trade show. This has probably encouraged Razer to mass produce their fitness band.
So this December 2, the Nabu Smartband will be available for purchase in North America at USD$99.99. For Razer forum members (called Insiders), a special pre-order promo has also been launched, allowing these people to pre-order the device at a discounted price point of USD$79.99. Around 5000 units have been made available for this promo. Check out the forum link at the source section below.
The Razer Nabu is compatible with Android devices with version 4.3 or better, and iOS devices as well. Aside from the common fitness features, the Nabu also delivers notifications straight to your wrist via a small 128×32-pixel screen. The Nabu is also IP54 certified for water resistance. Are you getting one this December?
