Razer Nabu beta launching on July 10


Now here’s a name you wouldn’t expect to be on this site. Razer. Yes, the company behind the gaming PC’s and other electronics in that area is about to launch a beta program for it’s upcoming smart-fitness wearable, Razer Nabu.

The device was unveiled back in January at CES, and has an OLED screen with Pebble style capabilities that include seeing your phone’s notifications like calls and texts.

On July 10th, you can be a part of the Nabu beta program and buy one for only 1$, providing that you are already a “hardcore Razer fan” and will provide detailed feedback to Razer about your hardware and software impressions. You can sign up for the beta here

The Nabu will work with the iPhone 5, 5S and 5C, and Android 4.3 and greater devices, is water-resistant, and has a 5- to 7-day battery life. Razer’s aim is to make the Nabu work as a message-receiving device while playing games, too.

There has been a lot of smart-fitness wearables popping up lately, and it’ll be interesting to see if Razer’s will make an impact in the crowding industry.
