RAZER ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF NEW NABU SMARTBAND WITH A ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE

SEATTLE (PAX Prime 2015) – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the launch of its Razer Nabu smartband. A two-and-half minute zombie survival guide commercial produced by Razer will inaugurate a marketing campaign that highlights the benefits of “living smarter” with Nabu.

“When we originally announced the Razer Nabu at CES 2014, we received a ton of feedback on features that users enjoyed and aspects that needed improvement,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We re-designed the Razer Nabu with that feedback, including a change in the placement of the button for a more intuitive user experience. The zombie video we’ve made is a fun way for us to commemorate the re-launch of one of our most anticipated products with the fans who helped make it a reality.”

Razer will celebrate its next generation of wearable products at PAX Prime in Seattle this weekend by giving away 2,000 exclusive PAX Blue Nabu X smartbands to gamers at the expo.

Both Nabu and Nabu X will receive major updates through a new companion app that will be compatible with both devices. The new companion app comes with a vibrant UI for a clearer, more motivating picture of the user’s daily activity, as well as advanced auto-sleep tracking algorithms, amongst other new features. Current Nabu X users can download the beta version of the companion app at www.razerzone.com/nabu-x from today.

A unique band-to-band communication technology is built into the Razer Nabu. Users will be able to display fitness tracking and smartphone notifications directly on their wrist via a discreet OLED screen. To find out more about the Razer Nabu, please visit www.razerzone.com/nabu.
