Razer has pulled the covers off something a bit different for it at CES 2014. The new product isn’t a gaming mouse, keyboard, or headset. Rather the Razer Nabu SmartBand is a compact wearable device meant to interface with your smartphone and more.

The device will provide notifications from your smartphone on its small OLED screens. The outer public icon screen shows the user incoming calls, texts, emails, and app updates via notification icons. The private message screen on the inside of the wrist gives detailed info on texts emails, and more that only the user needs to see.

The Nabu also has advanced sensors for data tracking with location information, bio data feedback for steps and more, as well as sleep data. One of the more unique features of the Nabu is that it allows band-to-band communication capability to find nearby friends and other users based on settings that are defined by the wearer. Razer plans on offering the Nabu to developers first to see what sort of innovative apps they can develop for the device.

The Nabu supports Android and iOS smartphones. The developer price for the Nabu is $49(USD) with the retail price to be set later.
