Accessory major Razer is the latest company to jump into the wearable tech segment. Earlier this year, at the consumer electronics show (CES), they had announced the arrival of the Razer Nabu. Now, after a long wait, it appears that the company has finally started to sell the device in market.
While it's unclear if the company will ever bring the Razer Nabu to India, the product is surely going up on sale in the North America. The wearable band will go on sale next week in the North America on Tuesday, December 2. It will be initially made available at the RazerStore with a price tag of $99.99 or about Rs. 6,200.
"The Razer Nabu has undergone extensive consumer and developer testing, all of which is providing feedback toward the final retail-ready device. This has ensured that with all the features polished-discreet notifications, fitness tracking, social capabilities and more-the Razer Nabu is a device that has something cool in-store for everyone", said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO, Razer, in a press statement.
Unlike a typical looking fitness-centered band, the Razer Nabu offers the best of both worlds into one single device. The hybrid smartband offers a 128 x 32-pixel per inch ppi OLED display that will show regular notifications, call alerts, tests and e-mails.
In addition, the Nabu also tracks data from your daily happenings; of course, related to fitness and health. It even comes with gesture support.
The smartband - which comes in a slew of colors, will be compatible with latest gen Android and iOS devices. The band 's battery should last between 7 to 10 days.
At the same time, the company has announced that an early batch of 5,000 units will be made available for pre-order. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
