Not to be confused with a smartwatch, but rather a watch that is smart, Razer announced the Nabu Watch at CES in Las Vegas this week. Available later this month starting at $149 through Razer’s retail channels, the Nabu Watch focuses heavily on fitness, as well as simple notifications while linked up to your smartphone.
With a 12-month battery life thanks to a replaceable coin cell battery, the Nabu Watch features essentially two wearables in one. It has a digital watch display along with all of the necessary features (alarms, timers, stopwatch), on top of the features available from the original Nabu wearable. When synced to a smartphone, the Nabu Watch allows for discreet notifications, fitness tracking, and watch-to-watch communication.
Razer has a Nabu app available on Google Play for usage with their wearables. With the app, users can control and manage all of the wearable’s utility and fitness features.
Unlike last year’s Nabu announcement, beta release, and final launch, the Nabu Watch is available for purchase later this month, priced at $149. A special edition, called the Nabu Watch Forged Edition, is priced at $199 and is available this week, featuring stainless steel physical buttons, plus a “premium black finish.”
