The Nabu Smartband has been designed as w wearable sensor which will track the way you live and interact with others. It will be a friend with your mobile device too, as it will be able to pair with any Android or iOS by using Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Meaning that the Nabu will be able to display relevant notifications on your wrist.
Razer’s Smartband uses an outward-facing OLED display to inform you of a new text, email, or call. Vibration and illuminated icon are hard to be ignored once you got an alert. The other display with more information about a notification will face the back of your wrist so discretion is guaranteed. Juicy details will be for your eyes only, unless you decide to share them.
To improve your privacy even further, the Nabu is equipped with built-in accelerometer which can detect when you have tilted your wrist to activate the display. If for some reason you can’t accept the call, simply shake of your wrist to reject the call.
Excitement doesn't end here as the Nabu is also capable of becoming your lifestyle and fitness capable. The Nabu has a capability to use a GPS data from your phone and other inertial sensors, this new Smartband can detect steps walked, stairs climbed, distance travelled, and if you really want it to track your life 24/7, the Nabu will record your sleeping habits.
When the Nabu becomes available to the public, it will come complete with a dedicated mobile companion app to detect all your lifestyle habits. It can detect other Nabu owners too which could be a base for features and games in the future. Razer stated it will release the Nabu’s open SDK with a discounted price of a device for developers. While devs will be able to get the Nabu for $49, it is still unknown how much the rest of us mortals will have to pay for it.
Up to 7 days of battery life is more than enough to have your life recorded on one small device. The real-world gamification is becoming a reality. We know that the price will be under $100, so something between $49 and $99 for those who would like to have their lifestyle displayed on their wrist.
