For many producers it takes a couple of tries earlier than making a product that flies off the cabinets. Razer hopes their second time’s a appeal, releasing their second wearable: the Nabu Watch.

Nabu is a dual displayed smartwatch, so the secondary OLED screen shall be the sole “smart feature” screen. Elevating your wrist permits you activate it, enabling previews of phone notifications and exercise/knowledge monitoring by way of its accelerometer sensors. Although it appears an optical coronary heart-price monitor didn’t warrant sufficient significance for them.


You’ll additionally have the ability to share social media particulars simply utilizing a shake-to-shake feature, making contact exchanges seamless and extra than simply a easy “introductory” whereas assembly somebody for the first time.

Thus, for those who’re a easy person who loves G-Shocks that aren’t G-Shocks, you possibly can choose to go away the secondary display “off” and easily persist with the principal one. However that defeats the function of a smartwatch anyway, doesn’t it?


Razer’s Nabu may attraction to adventure people who need one thing that appears stealthy and may take a beating. Extra so for health aficionados who exit in search of a sweat outside; wilderness elective.
