Razer Delays The Launch Of The Nabu Smartband To make Sure It’s Hypoallergenic

April 11, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

With all the wearables available out there today one of the more interesting ones has got to be the Razer Nabu. We know that it isn’t as equipped with features as any of the smartwatches, but it has two things going for it that just might make it a contender-at least we’re hoping so-which is the fact that it might immediately have a presence as the leading for gamers, and its subtle functionality and elegant design are completely understated. While some are seeking a wearable that not only looks great but can provide them with a ton of features, other simply want a smartband that can notify them of incoming messages and calls, and log activities and other aspects of their everyday life. This is the Razer Nabu.

The smartband from the gaming accessory behemoth was due for a scheduled launch last month, but reports are surfacing that state Razer wanted to make sure that they didn’t run into the same issues as Fitbit who had to recall their Fitbit Force band. Razer is simply trying to avoid causing consumers who purchase the Nabu smartband skin irritation when worn, which we have to applaud them for even if it means a longer wait for a product we were generally interested in. This is only a minor setback as though, as Razer takes the time to make sure that they do things right and launch a product that doesn’t have any health risks, sources are saying that they have only pushed the launch date back a little with the Razer Nabu smartband now scheduled for a release sometime in late May or early June.

If this is the case, we think it’s perfect as the Razer Nabu will be arriving just in time for summer, when we can out and be active in the sun and get some exercise while it’s warm. If you already pre-ordered a Razer Nabu yourself you’ll have to wait a bit longer but thankfully that wait is only a couple months it looks like. We’re looking forward to getting our hands on one of these and living life with it on our wrist for a good few weeks.
