Razer Features Smart Bracelet That Is Half Smartwatch And Half Fitness Band

And the price should be the most competitive in the market: it will be below 100 dollars

Hardly anyone expected Razer to show a wearable at CES 2014, but that’s what happened. The company introduced the world to Nabu, its version of smartwatch that also brings fitness band characteristics- so we prefer to call it smart band. The rationale for agaming company is to dedicate itself to something of the sort until it’s simple: investing in real-life gamification, even more so if it’s an open platform gadget.

It has two screens, one smaller, which sits on the top of the wrist, and a larger one on the inside that displays more information. In case of receiving text messages, the smaller screen displays the notification icon and the larger the message content. This screen is activated by the accelerometer when the arm makes the proper movement, so it gives a greater privacy and is less inconvenient (you can read quickly without totally diverting the focus from a conversation, for example), even for being small: it has 128 x 32 pixels, while the other is square, with sides of 32 pixels. The battery, according to Razer, lasts 7 to 10 days.

The disclosure photo has the inner green, but the one shown by CEO Min-Liang Tan toEngadget  is all black and more discreet, without the fitness aspect.

Speaking of which, Nabu has, in addition to the accelerometer, location, altitude and biometric sensors that help monitor the physical activities of those who use it, such as step counter and sleep meter.

But the coolest thing is the social factor of the bracelet. She recognizes gestures, so by shaking hands with someone who also has one, the two can automatically become contacts on LinkedIn. Another possibility for gestures is to shake hands to reject a call that can not be answered on the spot. Nabu can still find its peers in the vicinity, which opens up quite interesting possibilities of augmented reality games for devs.

The price is even more interesting: Android and iOS developers can get them for $ 50 at the end of this quarter. For the mortal remnants, it also arrives at the end of this quarter, but has no set price. However, Razer guarantees it costs less than $ 100, a very seductive price for what it promises.
