We came away from CES back in January, looking forward to the release of the Razer Nabu smartband. It seemed like the perfect mix of notifications and fitness tracking, made by a computer company which most people hold in very high regard. It was stated at CES that the Nabu would likely be launched to a group of developers for an extremely attractive price of just $49.99 starting in Q1, however, as of this morning that timeframe has been pushed back.

Samsung’s new lineup of sporty wearables – Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit – is up for pre-order through Amazon already, all of which show a launch date of April 11. If that date sounds familiar, that’s because the Galaxy S5 is launching globally on that day as well.
We’ve got links to all items below, but in case you were wondering, pricing looks like this: Gear 2 ($299), Gear 2 Neo ($199), and Gear Fit ($199). (more…)
The case is actually quite neat, as not only are you protecting your gorgeous new device with its plastic back and front flip cover, but it also brings a bit of added functionality with it. The case allows users to swipe and tap on it, bringing voice dial actions as well as gesture commands for when new notifications and phone calls pour in. (more…)
Back in November, we took a look at the official Bumper case for the Nexus 5 in a quick review. For the most part, we wanted to love every ounce of the case as it is of the highest quality, came in a variety of colors, and also fit tremendously well on the device. Unfortunately, Google didn’t test the case before selling it. With the device in-case, you quickly realized that it was nearly impossible to press either the volume or power/lock buttons.
The buttons were either too skinny or placed poorly – maybe even both. It took some serious pressure to change the volume on your device or do something as simple as wake it to unlock it. The button issue was an instant deal-breaker, especially with the case carrying a steep $35 price tag.
Well, guess what? Google has fixed the case without saying a thing. (more…)
Nyko, an accessories maker geared towards mobile gaming, announced three new accessories for the SHIELD mobile gaming console from NVIDIA. The accessories include a new Shell Case, perfect for absolute protection of your SHIELD. While NVIDIA sells their own cases, a few folks might call them overpriced at $39.99, but Nyko’s are just $12.99. (more…)
Fitness bands and trackers are everywhere these days. Some have AMOLED screens, others still use layers of LED lights to give you basic info, and a handful lack interfaces altogether, instead relying on companion apps to do the dirty work. For the most part, none of that really differentiates one from the other because all pretty much do the same thing – they log hours of fitness info and expect you do figure the rest out on your own.
What if a smart band or fitness tracker could not only log your workouts, but also instruct you on how to get better at them? What if you could improve your running form or swimming stroke or golf swing by wearing a tracker on your leg, arm, or body? A new product called Moov aims to do exactly that. (more…)
Middling or average battery life has been a complaint of Moto X owners since the device’s release. Despite hardware that doesn’t draw nearly the power of higher-end devices, the 2200mAh battery capacity often isn’t enough to get through a full day without charging.
The folks at Mugen Power recognize this; yesterday, the company revealed a 2800mAh battery case designed specifically for the Moto X. For $89.50, it’ll bump the combined capacity to 5000mAh (2800mAh case + 2200mAh internal phone battery), which should translate to 20+ hours of usage before needing a charge. Of course, the extended battery life also translates to added bulk through the case.
The case is $89.50, and is now available for pre-order. It’ll ship on March 14.
Any takers? (more…)
