CES 2015 | Razer Nabu X goes on sale next week

Razer Nabu X smartband with fitness tracking, notifications and social functions

This new wearable wristband does not have a screen, as it uses 3 colored LED lights and vibration motors instead, but also comes much cheaper than last year's Nabu smartband.

Less than a year after the Nabu smartband has hit the market, Razer launches a new wearable, simply called Nabu X. Razer Nabu X does not have a screen like its predecessor, but is capable to track fitness data, deliver smartphone notifications, and even packs social band-to-band features. "We’ve taken what makes the Nabu such a compelling wearable – discreet notifications, activity tracking and band-to-band communication – and incorporated them into the Nabu X. It’s the basic alternative to the Nabu that’s extremely affordable and simple to use," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO.

The Nabu X can track the same lifestyle and fitness parameters as its more expensive sibling - steps, calories, distance, sleep, or active minutes. Both smartbands work with the third-party apps available on the Nabu Marketplace. Nabu X features a one-size-fits-all strap and is available in white or black. Just like the more expensive Nabu, it features wrist-turn detection and can connect to iOS and Android smartphones via Bluetooth. Battery life is 7 days, but can go up to 30 days on a single charge when in standby.

While early adopters and fans can get it for only $19.99 USD via Razer Insider, the Nabu X has a price of $49.99 USD, much cheaper when compared to the $99.99 USD price tag of the Razer Nabu. Razerzone.com will begin selling this wearable on January 13 while worldwide availability is expected for this spring.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
