Gaming peripheral company Razer showcased its Nabu Smartband back in January at the CES 2014. Interested consumers waiting to get their hands on Razer’s smartband had to wait for a significant period of time before they could claim ownership of the device. Now, users coveting the company’s first ever Smartband will no longer have to wait any longer as the Nabu wearable will start to ship in time for Christmas. That will translate the Nabu Smartband in being available on December the 2nd.
On that date, the Nabu Smartband will be available first on the Razer online store and will later make its way to retailers. One of the reasons why the company has delayed the launch of its wearable device was that Razer was working on a beta program for users during that time as well as a developer program to allow developers to make useful apps for the Nabu.
iPhone users have a treat waiting for them as the Nabu will be compatible with the iOS Heath App right out of the box. In addition, the Nabu’s availability will be in the form of 5000 units and will be available for pre-order through the Insider community platform that launched recently. Since Razer has not given the device a ‘one size fits all’ feature, the Nabu will be available in small-medium and medium-large sizes, along with being available in in four colors – green, white, orange, and black.
Furthermore, the Nabu will be compatible with the iPhone 5 and higher. For the Android platform however, users will be required to have their devices run the Android 4.3 OS or newer on their phones. The company has not revealed any pricing details of the wearable but since the company does have an affinity to release ludicrously expensive products, chances are consumers who are burdened by financial constraints will not be enticed to purchase the Nabu.
