Razer Nabu SmartBand with Dual-OLED Screens, Notifications, Android / iOS Compatibility



Razer Nabu

When you talk of the wearable gadgets, it wasn’t just the big known brands (e.g. Sony Smartband, LG Lifeband touch) which showcased their band. But there were some excellent products shown by others too, and one of them is Razer, who announced the Razer Nabu sweatband at the CES 2014 event. This one was called as World’s smartest wristband by the company, as it doesn’t limit itself to the step counting, but offers quite a lot more than that.

Razer Nabu

According to the makers, there is an open platform so that the third party developers can create apps for the various data including personal, physical and geographical. There are two OLED screens:

  1. Public icon screen with 32 x 32 pixel OLED display which would notify about the incoming calls, text messages, emails and the app updates with the notification icons
  2. Private message screen with 128 x 32 pixel OLED display which is for the detailed information of the same notifications such as text messages, emails, bio data and any other type of updates

If the connectivity and the notification wasn’t enough, the Razer Nabu has got the advanced sensors such as Accelerometer, Altimeter and the Cylindrical vibration motor to track the data for the self-analysis which includes the data tracking, location information, bio data feedback which shows the steps walked, distance traveled, stairs/floors climbed and the sleep data.

Shaking the wrist would dismiss the active notifications, and with the snap of the fingers, you could enable the speed mode in the Nabu, which are all the programmable gestures included in the sweatband. To keep things going on, there’s the Utility app for both Android and iOS, and this is what would send the notifications and data and also the settings for the various data to be shared on the band.

Apart from the band to smartphone connection, what we are impressed with, is the communication between the bands, which would allow for the social discovery such as finding friends nearby and the mutual acquaintances, and could be more based on what the user sets.

Finally, this one is resistant to water, which means it can survive well in rain and when water splashes onto it, but don’t expect it to respond when you dive in a swimming pool wearing the band. There is a Li-ion battery included in the smartband that is said to be lasting up to seven days. According to Razer, the Nabu Smartband will be coming in two sizes and a range of color options.

Developers can sign-up now and get the band at the developer’s price of $49, and this price is a huge attraction when you compare with the other smartbands and watches available in the market right now. It should be available anytime soon, in the first quarter of 2014.
