It features a 1/100 second stopwatch, countdown timer, full auto calendar,3 multi-function alarms, wold time. The time and alarms can be manually adjusted via the Nabu app or auto synced to phone time.

The Nabu connected hardware is powered by a lithium polymer power pack that offers up to 7 days of battery life. It has a single button for the 128X16-pixel, single-color OLED display, 3-axis accelerometer, cylindrical vibration motor, charges via magnetic proprietary USB cable, and connects to supported mobile devices via Bluetooth LE. The smartphones supported include Apple's iPhone 5 or later with iOS 8 or later, as well as Android 4.3+ devices with Bluetooth 4.0 LE or later.

Razer Nabu Watch comes in two versions - standard and Forged Edition. The first one is priced at $149.99 USD and will become available by the end of the month, while the $199.99 USD premium black version with stainless steel buttons is already available at RazerStore retail locations and online.

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.
