Razer Nabu (2015)

Razer's smart Nabu activity tracker is back with an improved design

Razer was ahead of its time with its first Nabu smartband . The activity tracker debuted in early 2014 and was one of the first to include smartphone notifications. Production problems resulted in a limited release and the company eventually moved on to the more affordable Nubu X . But the original Nabu hasn't been forgotten, and on Friday the company unveiled a slightly redesigned version of the activity tracker at the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) video game convention in Seattle.

The new Nabu has all of the features found in your average Fitbit or Jawbone. It can track steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned and active minutes. The band can also measure the amount of sleep you get each night. This is done automatically, so you don't need to tap any buttons or enter a special sleep mode like you do with the Jawbone Up2 . To wake up you can set the band to gently vibrate.

The Nubu also contains a unique band-to-band communication feature. This lets two users share contact information and initiate friend requests with a handshake. You will, however, need to find another person that owns a Nabu activity tracker.
