Razer Announces Nabu Watch, Stargazer, and Blade Stealth
Razer showed off some new tech at the Consumer Electronics Show today, including a powerful laptop, a fully featured digital watch, and a webcam for streamers in mind.
The Nabu Watch, while sharing a name with it’s “cousins” Nabu and Nabu X, is more in line with a traditional digital watch, but with a few extra features for modern users. Razer focused on the watch’s battery by moving some features to the timepiece’s secondary screen. The top screen is an illuminated backlit display that touts a countdown time, stopwatch, World time clocks, and alarms. The secondary screen will show users phone notifications, and fitness tracking. The Nabu Watch will also sync with a user’s phone to make sure the clock is always up-to-date.
The Nabu Watch will be available later this month and retail for $149.99. There will also be a Forged Edition that will only be available through official Razer channels and will retail for $199.99. For more detail, check out the official page.
The Stargazer is Razer’s foray into the webcam market. Not content with being a mere webcam, the Stargazer includes a ton of features for both streamers and other webcam users. Dynamic Background Removal users the camera’s ability to differentiate depth and can remove the background from a video without the use of a green screen setup. Facial and gesture recognition are impressive with 78 points on the face and 22 points on each hand that can be tracked by the Stargazer. Of course, the camera will also be able to record at 720p at 60 frames-per-second, or at 1080p at 30 frames-per-second.
The Stargazer will be released in Q2 2016 and will be priced at $199.99. You can check the webcam’s specs on the official page.
The Razer Blade Stealth is the new Ultrabook that sports an Intel Core i7 processor. The Windows 10 laptop comes with two very impressive variants. The 4K version (3840 x 2160) will have a 100% coverage of the Adobe RGB color space which will provide vibrant colors. There will also be a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) version that uses 70% of the Adobe RGB color space. All that while sizing up to .52 inches thin and weighs only 2.75 pounds. But for those unsure about how it’ll handle the biggest games, Razer will also be releasing the Razer Core.
Razer Core is an enclosure for graphics cards which will connect to the Blade Stealth. The enclosure will take almost every GPU from either AMD or Nvidia and will serve similarly to a docking station. Giving the Ultrabook more USB ports as well as Ethernet connectivity. And with plug-and-play support for specific cards without having to reboot makes it incredibly versatile.
The Blade Stealth Ultrabook is available now through Razer’s website and begins retailing at $999. The official page has the full details on the Blade Stealth and the Razer Core.
The Razer Core will be available in the first half of 2016, but does not have a price yet.
