Razer is having a very busy CES 2016. The company is tackling the lousy battery life on modern smart watches by adding a secondary screen to the classic digital watch. The new Razer Nabu Watch has the standard feature set of a high end digital watch. It has an illuminated backlit display, countdown timer, stopwatch, world time clocks, and alarms all powered by a regular coin cell battery that lasts up to 12 months. Shake the watch and the secondary display lights up to provide smartphone notifications, fitness tracking, and watch to watch communication. The secondary screen is powered by a separate LiPo battery with a 7 day life span, which means even if the user forgets to charge the watch, they can still tell the time.
The Razer Nabu Watch has a beefy design, reminiscent of early Casio G-Shocks. The Nabu Watch will come in two versions. The standard edition comes in black with a polycarbonate body and Razer green highlights. It launches in late January 2016 with an MSRP of $149.99. The Razer Nabu Watch Forged Edition sports the same body, but adds machined stainless steel buttons and a black finish for the watch’s back case. It is available now at the Razer Store for $199.99.
