As it turns out, the Blade gaming laptop series is not the only product line up within Razer that receives a new family member at CES 2016. Alongside the new Blade Stealth ultrabook and its optional Core external graphics card enclosure, Razer has also launched Nabu Watch at the event.
At a glance, we are sure that you can’t help but to notice the similarities between Razer’s new Nabu Watch and Casio G-Shock. We wonder though if the new watch was indeed inspired by those legendary Casio watches since durability is part of Nabu Watch’s characteristics with its 5ATM water resistance rating and the ability to withstand shock from a drop of up to 5m.
At the same time, Razer insists that its new Nabu Watch is not a smartwatch. Instead, it is a digital watch with smart functionalities and the company has chosen to deliver this experience is by equipping Nabu Watch with two displays.
Specifically, the timekeeping functions of Nabu Watch is delivered through the primary display while notifications from users’ smartphone (connected via Bluetooth) are displayed on the watch’s smaller secondary display that was similar in size to the original Nabu. Users are also able to adjust the watch’s time, world time, and alarms using Nabu app on their smartphone.
Additionally, the Nabu Watch also functions as activity, fitness, and sleeping tracker just like the original Nabu and Nabu X. As for battery life, the replaceable CR2032 battery within Nabu Watch is able to power its digital chronograph portion for up to 12 months while a separate lithium polymer rechargeable battery provides up to 7 days of battery life for Nabu Watch’s smart module.
The watch comes in two version: Forged Edition which is available for order now in United States for USD 199.99 (about RM 885) and the USD 149.99 (about RM 664) standard edition that will be released later this month throughout the world.
