Razer Nabu X on sale now for £45

Razer’s wallet-friendly Nabu X is now on sale for £44.99. You can order direct from Razer.

Razer only announced the fitness band at CES earlier this month. Which is lightning progress, especially when you consider it took almost a year for the original Nabu to go on sale.

At CES, we heard the Nabu X wouldn’t ship until the spring. So this is a most welcome bit of news.

The Nabu X is almost identical to the Nabu, but it doesn’t have a screen. Instead, three colour-customisable LEDs give you your notifications. A bit of a compromise admittedly. But for £45, you can’t argue.

Inside is an accelerometer and a vibration motor to alert you. It supports both iOS and Android too with companion apps, which is a feature we’re seeing on more and more wearables. The Razer Nabu works with Windows Phone as well as Android and iOS.

The Nabu X’s sensor module is detachable, so you can swap the straps. Choose from black, white or green.

It has all the same fitness tracking skills of its bigger brother, including counting steps, calories and monitoring your sleep. It also packs the same Pulse tech which makes activity tracking social: you can share your data, play multiplayer games with friends and even ‘high five’ other users if they’ve done a good job.
