Apple Watch vs Razer Nabu
Apple Watch unites the capabilities of an all-day fitness tracker and a highly advanced sports watch in one device you can wear all the time. It can track a wider variety of activities because it’s able to collect more types of data. It uses an accelerometer to measure your total body movement. It has a custom sensor that can measure intensity by tracking your heart rate. And it uses the GPS and Wi‑Fi in your iPhone to track how far you’ve moved.
Razer Nabu features discreet notifications delivered from your smartphone, an accelerometer for fitness tracking, and social band-to-band capabilities. With a highly advanced accelerometer and algorithms built in, the Razer Nabu lets you know exactly how far you've walked today, how long you've slept, how many more calories you need to burn to hit that personal goal, and more. The best part is the device calculates numbers based on your personal profile – ensuring the activity data reflected is yours and yours only.
Latest news about Apple Watch and Razer Nabu:
02.12.14. Razer Nabu goes on sale for $99. Razer's Nabu Smartband, a smart bracelet for the wrist is finally going on sale for $99. There are two primary aspects that set the Nabu apart from other similar bands like Jawbone’s UP24 and Microsoft Band. First, the Nabu has two screens for notifications: one square 32 x 32 pixel display on the outside of the wrist and a larger 128 x 32 pixel screen on the inside. Even with the two screens, the Nabu promises a seven-day battery life on a full charge. It can sync with iOS or recent Android phones that support Bluetooth Low Energy. Second, Nabu isn’t exclusively geared towards activity tracking and fitness, although it will sync with iOS Health. While it has an accelerometer and an altimeter — which will allow it to measure steps and activity — its most interesting features are what Razer is calling “band-to-band” capabilities. For instance, if two people with Razer Nabu bands shake hands, users can set it up so that contact details are swapped as well. Razer calls the protocol that enables those kind of proximity features Pulse.
10.09.14. Apple Watch wants to dominate the market for fitness trackers. Apple unveiled its new smartwatch Apple Watch today and one of its main features is comprehensive health and fitness tracker. The Apple Watch will track your heart rate and measure three separate categories of movement. The first is the "Move" ring, which measures the calories you've burned and tells you when you've hit your personal goal for the day. The "Exercise" ring captures more brisk movement, and closes when you've put in 30 minutes total each day. The "Stand" ring measures how often you break from the sedentary reality of parking your butt in an office chair all day, and closes when you've gotten up for at least one minute in twelve different hours during the day. It pairs with the barometer in the newest iPhones to track your climbs and claims it will be able to distinguish the intensity of your activity to better track the calories you're burning.
