Garmin Vivosmart vs Razer Nabu

Garmin Vivosmart
Garmin Vivosmart Is a Fitness Tracker With a Smartwatch Punch. It offers smartwatch-like capabilities, including the ability to get calendar notifications and alerts for incoming calls, texts and emails.
Razer Nabu
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 Garmin Vivosmart and Razer Nabu:

16.05.17. Garmin's vívosmart 3 finally takes fitness tracking to the gym. Garmin is looking to solve one of the biggest issues facing wearables with its latest release, the vívosmart 3: How can an activity tracker be useful in the gym?  The $140 vívosmart 3 is a shot at making a more well-rounded wearable for everyone, with the added bonus of new weight room-specific features. The vívosmart 3 tracks runs, counts steps, and logs your sleep, like its competitors from Fitbit, the Alta HR and the Charge 2. The strength training function is built to log workouts directly on the device, with individual rep counting and even a way to automatically identify the specific exercise being performed via the device's sensors.  This could be Garmin's real edge against Fitbit in the wearable wars. The battery life runs in line with Garmin's five-day estimates.

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.

08.09.14. Garmin Vivosmart - part activity tracker and part smartwatch. Garmin’s first activity tracker vívofit just did’t have a lot of features to make it stand apart from its peers. But the company’s latest activity tracker, vívosmart, does just that. It combines good looks, activity tracking with smartphone alerts and controls — too bad it’s a touch pricey. The $169 band features a hidden touch-sensitive OLED display. The band of course tracks the wearer’s activities and since it’s a Garmin, hooks up to the company’s other products including its heart monitor and activity cameras. Vívosmart also acts as a notification device for a connected smartphone, vibrating for incoming text, email, call, calendar reminders and more.
