LG Lifeband Touch vs Razer Nabu
The LG Lifeband Touch is the company’s first take on a health-tracking wearable that works with both Android and iOS devices. Available in three sizes, the Lifeband Touch has a touchscreen display and a pair of sensors: an altimeter and a three-axis gyroscope. These can measure movement as well as air pressure, so they’re useful for tracking stairs climbed, for example. Because the device has just a few sensors and uses a power-efficient OLED screen, LG says the Lifeband Touch can run for 5 days between charges.
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 LG Lifeband Touch 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.
