Razer Nabu X review

 

Not even die-hard Razer fans will forgive the buggy software and limited fitness band functionality in the Nabu X.

The Nabu X is $50, which is an average price for a simple fitness tracker — but when devices like the Xiaomi Mi Band exist for half that cost, its shortcomings are far more serious. The hardware is good, and the band very comfortable, but the software...

Razer Nabu X

 

The Razer Nabu X is an affordable fitness tracker geared toward gamers, but many of its distinguishing social features are absent, making it feel like a prototype.

Inexpensive. Good battery life. Decent fitness tracking. Comfortable.

Frequently unresponsive. Confusing notification lights. Uses a proprietary charging cable. Frustrating reset process. Minor social features. Gaming functions are not yet available.

Conclusions The Razer Nabu X is a decent fitness tracker, though I can't help but feel disappointed by it. Two of the things that are supposed to set the band apart—social connectivity and gaming prowess—are respectively unsatisfactory or absent,...

Razer Nabu X smartband review

 

Most people associate Razer with gaming laptops, mice, and other hardware. But at CES 2014, the company unveiled plans to enter the fitness tracker / smartband market with the launch of Nabu, a...

Very long battery life ; Comfortable fit ; Fairly accurate step tracking

Boring design that's a dust magnet ; LED notifications are basically useless ; Your phone does everything this can

Razer Nabu X smartband review: more burnable than wearable

 

Andy gets hold of the Razer Nabu X fitness and social wearable band.

: I can’t begin to recommend the Nabu X as a fitness wearable without pointing to the masses of other bands that are better, but if you’re a Razer fan then jump right in. At least there’s a lot Razer can improve for the next Nabu X iteration, but for...

Razer Nabu X Review: Fit for Fitness, Not for Gaming

 

Razer loves to announce BIG, INDUSTRY SHAKING gadgets only to immediately scale them down. The company's first laptop started life as a handheld game console. Its first tablet originally had handlebars. The Nabu X is Razer's latest big idea, similarly...

Razer Nabu X review

 

This fitness tracker for gamers could use a level up

Affordable ; Discrete design ; Long battery life ; Comfy fit

Some buggy features ; Apps are lacking ; Notifications oversimplified

The Nabu X is a straightforward, affordable fitness tracker designed for gamers, but it simply doesn't hit all the marks.

Razer Nabu X is a $50 fitness-with-notifications band (hands-on)

 

LAS VEGAS -- A buzz and a glow: Razer's latest crack at a smart band goes for low-key features and a low price. Maybe, in the shadow of upcoming mega-wearables later this year, the cheaper path is the smarter one.

The Nabu X comes in three colors, and the snap-on rubberized band houses the actual removable plastic core of the device, which can be popped out and into other colored bands. It has a 7-day battery life, and is water resistant. The Nabu X launches...

Razer Nabu X review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Razer Nabu X is a cheap fitness tracker, but that doesn't always mean you're getting good value. Costs have been cut by not including a screen, but have corners been cut on accuracy? We've put this fitness tracker through our tough tests to find out.

Razer Nabu X

 

When is a wallet friendly price tag enough? In the case of Razer's first venture into wearables, the Nabu X, it papers over a few cracks in this smartband's functionality.

Lightweight design; Accurate measurements and tracking

App ecosystem lacking functionality; LED light notification difficult to decipher

At a relatively cheap R700, the Nabu X looks a truly intriguing prospect for users that are perhaps interested in trying out a activity tracking wearable, but do not wish to shell out upwards of R1000. That said, the Nabu X is far from perfect, and has...
