The classic look, long operation on battery and smart features. Watching smartwatchowi Razer Nabu Watch, a watch that is not only for the faithful fans of the brand.
Equipment Razer is, as it turns out, not only computer peripherals, accessories and equipment for the player. The manufacturer is entering new territory and trying their hand at market wearables.
Classics in the new edition
Contrary to trends prevailing in the segment smartwatchy, Razer Nabu Watch maintains the classic look, what I really to the liking. The envelope of the watch is made of durable polycarbonate and style strongly refers not only to traditional electronic watches, but also to the currently popular models even line Casio G-Shock. And not just me saying so. Also editors of PC Mag is of the opinion that the watch is rather a stranger from the 90 than a product created on the basis of current trends. Robust, even wild styling meets here with grand dimensions, which only emphasizes the unusual nature of the watch. Character, which one can appeal to, and alienate others.It is, however, in this model gen Razer – watch has a decoration in green, which emphasize its sporty look. The same color is displayed on the chronograph hour and notice an extra OLED screen. The whole is fastened to a very wide rubber strap with a strong attachment to the metal. The bar is very comfortable to wear, a clasp strong enough that it should be used for a long time. Besides, it is easy to assume. Simply place the strip through a metal hoop bracket and plug the holes. We also have a lot of room to adjust the width of the strip, so no problem matching watch in hand. Everything closes so interesting-looking frame, which, I discovered, catches the eye. watch is really big, but to me its dimensions do not interfere too much. Perhaps except for the difficulty in translating the hand through the sleeve cuffs. Still, I like how Nabu Watch looks at the wrist, and the size of individual buttons for comfortable handling not only the bare hand, but also with gloves. Four buttons on the sides to change the mode of operation and clock settings have a rough texture, so they are easily felt under the finger. Similarly, with a button located on the front of the reviewing notifications. Using them is really intuitive, but you have to delve into the manual to learn how to configure the settings.
This is what should have smartwatch
We watch serve so using five different buttons, and he communicates with us through two different displays. To display basic information – hour operation mode (clock, stopwatch, timer settings) – watch uses a screen known from classical models. It is fully legible even in direct sunlight, but after dark, we can highlight it. The brightness is not high, but enough for me. Besides, the screen does not draw a lot of energy, and importantly, has a separate battery (CR2032) allows for year of operation. It is important, in my opinion, part of the specifications of this model, because for me the watch should work as long as possible.The second screen is small OLED display any additional information. It is here that we find out how long the distance traveled, which measures the watch through the built-in accelerometer. It is able to give us not only the distance traveled, but also a number of steps, calories burned and the length of our sleep. This information should be treated with a grain of salt. All data collected about our activities are based on a built-in 3-axis accelerometer, which sometimes likes to be wrong. My observations also confirm the other reviews posted on the Web. So if you care about exact measurements, you better look for something else. The smaller screen is powered by a separate battery, which is loaded with a magnetic connector located on the back of the watch. Charge it takes up to 40 minutes while it is sufficient for at least 5 days you use the SmartWatch, then Nabu Watch again wins my sympathy. Obviously, the more we use this screen, the shorter the duration of the battery, but it happened to me that he was shorter than those five days – I found similar results in service Trusted Reviews . If anything, we have a preview of the battery, which can continuously track the application Nabu available systems Android and iOS .
Everything in one place
The program Nabu very easy to pair with a watch – just the instructions given when you first start, press and hold the button located on the front, and then rewrite the code to the phone displayed on the watch screen. I was able to do this without using the specific instructions. After this device make synchronization, after which Nabu Watch is ready for use.The application allows for convenient adjustment of most settings. We can change the brightness of the backlight, the power of vibration, speed displayed messages, select the notifications that are to be displayed on the watch, and change the alarm settings. Interestingly, the watch has two types of alerts: loud and discreet. The first is an audible alarm, while the other uses a built-in cylindrical vibration motor. Such subtle communication is used for eg. To a gentle wake up in the morning. We can also preview our sporting achievements – the quantity of the measured traffic congestion, distance traveled, expressed in kilometers, the time you spent on physical activity, calories burned and sleep duration. We set goals for each category, the achievement of which communicate watch the big trophy and a signal triumph.
Comfortable and durable
The design of the watch is protected against external influences – we shock resistance and water resistance category 5 ATM. In other words, we can take it with you on a bike ride or mountain. Razer Nabu Watch is not afraid of water too, but only rain or splashes. Diving and swimming with them is prohibited, which happens to be a disappointment, because I want to watch to accompany me in every possible situation, even while bathing or swimming.I noticed that in everyday use yet useful function automatically activating the OLED display after lifting a hand to the position of suggesting that we want to look at his watch. Is displayed when the widget you choose from a list of available applications Nabu – it can be a time (useful after dark), the number of steps or distance (fun to have on hand during running) or messages from your smartphone – a fragment of a text message, email or information about the missed call voice. We also have an audible signal informs us about every hour and a vibration informing us of other events. There were also the remote control smartphone, thanks to which we take control of the music player (you can assign only one function: pause / play, next song, previous song) or remotely release the shutter of the camera. It should also know that Razer Nabu Watch comes in two variants – standard and enhanced. The latter, Razer Nabu Watch Forged Edition, enhanced with stainless steel. Made of the buttons have greater strength and give even better experience during everyday use.
The watch not only for the Player
Although the design and general profile indicates that the Razer Nabu Watch was created for the faithful fans of the brand, the model offers features that will appreciate all users. There are long duration of action, which is a rare case among smartwatchy. We also have the ability to track physical activity and suspected notification. For this watch is durable and robust – strong clasp and bars suggest that this model will serve for many years. Of course, you do not run a smart function – Razer Nabu Watch measures steps, distance and calories, although you have to take on an amendment that the values are rather approximate. While the number of steps and the length of the route, which went through seem to be accurate, so much the number of calories burned is rather for me pictorial information. It is a pity that in addition to the characteristic appearance does not have any function of dedicated players, eg. A message that, to take a break from the computer. 😉 [Temperatura2 product_id = "21656" hide_temperatura = "true"]
