It looks like Razer is expanding its reach beyond gamers by announcing new products that appeal to a broader audience. The company’s latest creation was unveiled this week at CES – the Nabu Smartband.

In contrast to other smartbands in the past that has a heavy focus on fitness tracking, the Nabu adds a little extra something that makes it stand out from the crowd. Aside from being a fitness tracker, the Nabu also packs features found on smartwatches.

The Razer Nabu features a dual-OLED display design that shows notifications on one side (called the public icon screen) and provides detailed information of texts, emails and bio data on the other (called the private message screen). The Public icon screen is located at the top of the wrist similar to a watch face’s placement in a watch, while the Private Message screen is located on the inside of the wrist.

The smartband connects to either an iOS or Android smart device and features advanced sensors for tracking various user information including location, sleep data, and bio data feedback to name a few.

The Nabu is powered by a lithium-polymer battery, which according to Razer can last up to 7 days when fully charged (USB charging). It is also ran and splashproof. Razer has also made the Nabu open to developers so third-party devs can build new apps or update existing ones for consumers.

The Razer Nabu smartband will be available in late Q1 2014, but developers can already get the band today at US$49.
