Razer, a company typically known for its gaming accessories, has unveiled the new Nabu Watch at CES 2016. Razer's entry into the smartwatch market interfaces with a companion iPhone app, allowing users to screen notifications, along with tracking fitness metrics and sleep activity.
The Razer Nabu Watch features an interesting circular display that looks to be split into three sections for viewing the time, scrolling through notifications, tracking fitness data, and more. One of the more interesting features of the watch is its watch-to-watch capability, which enables quick transfer of information between two users. For example, two Nabu users can shake hands to instantly exchange Facebook and Twitter info.
Razer says that the watch sports 12 months of battery life on its main screen, thanks to a coin cell battery. Meanwhile, a secondary screen for displaying notifications and tracking fitness data carries 7 days of life on a rechargeable lithium polymer battery. It's an interesting mix of components, to be sure.
The base Razer Nabu Watch will be available in late January worldwide for $149. Meanwhile the Razer Nabu Watch Forged Edition, which features stainless steel buttons and a "premium" black finish, is currently available exclusively from Razer for $200.
