What’s more, the company has set aside 5,000 Razer Nabu bands for purchase immediately through the Razer Insiders platform. That’s for fans that contributed during the seemingly eternal beta phase.

The Razer Nabu will ship in two sizes and in four colours: green, white, orange and black. However, in typical Razer fashion if you were hankering for one of the coloured bands you'll have to wait – and of course, no date has been set for their availability.

“The Razer Nabu has undergone extensive consumer and developer testing, all of which is providing feedback toward the final retail-ready device,” said Min-Liang Tan, CEO of Razer.

“This has ensured that with all the features polished—discreet notifications, fitness tracking, social capabilities and more—the Razer Nabu is a device that has something cool in-store for everyone.”

The Razer Nabu band has created a substantial buzz since its announcement with an impressive array of connected features.

On top of activity tracking tech such as calories burned, steps taken, floors climbed, there are also a healthy dose of social features, too.

The band will push notifications from connected iOS and Android smartphones, such as calls, texts, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Skype and Google Maps. Razer has also partnered with Chinese social giant WeChat.

There’s unfortunately no word on a release outside the US, but we’re pushing Razer for details.

    If I am not mistaken, this article is a little bit incorrect. You have to qualify to get a Nabu on the 2nd and the people that qualify get it for $79.99. If this information is not for the "press" the XD I guess.

    Reading closely, the wording off the release we got was ambiguous. Digging into it, it seems the Insiders get priority on Dec 2, for the lower price. Thanks for pointing out.

    I currently wear the Fitbit Flex and have tried out the Pebbles watch.  I like the review I seen on the Razer and would like to get in as one of the 5K first to try on Dec 2 - Which is  My Birthday.
