  • Compatibility: iOS (iPhone 5 and up) and Android 4.3+ devices, via Bluetooth LE
  • Sensors: accelerometer, cylindrical vibration motor
  • Protection: IP54 water resistance, anti-glare coating, scratch and shatter resistant displays
  • Battery life: 5 to 7 days
  • Software: Nabu Utility for customization, Nabu Fitness for logging and monitoring data, various third-party apps
  • Sizes: small-medium and medium-large
  • Colors: black, white, orange, green

According to the official press release, "an early batch of 5000 Nabu units will be made available to them for pre-order via Insider, Razer’s newly launched community platform." Nabu Beta testers who signed up for the program before September can pick their units for $79.99 USD tomorrow while the regular price is available for the smartbands sold via Razer's online store.

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.
