Is Razer Stealthly Reaching for the Stars with its New Watch?

/ Jan 7th, 2016 No Comments

Razer Blade Stealth and Razer Core

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I was able to incorporate each of Razer’s new products into a single title. It seems that every year, Razer surprises at CES, and this year is no different. The company announced major products aimed at three different types of consumers, continuing its push to be more than just a gaming company.

Razer Blade Stealth Ultrabook

The biggest announcement is the new Razer Blade Stealth ultrabook. The latest iteration of Razer’s laptop line is the thinnest and smallest yet, but it still packs quite a punch performance wise. While it is not a souped-up gaming laptop like previous Razer Blade models, it can be connected to a separate Razer Core desktop hub for use as a gaming PC. Users can easily install a graphics card into the hub for optimum gaming performance.

This is huge for gaming on the go, especially since the ultrabook alone is no slouch. It’s always nice to have a laptop that is capable of gaming but the trade off has always been weight and bulkiness. With the Razer Blade Stealth only .52 inches thin and weighing 2.75 pounds, it could be the perfect balance between portability and performance.

The Latest from Razer

Perhaps the most unexpected of Razer’s new products is the Stargazer webcam. The 3D webcam is capable of 60 fps at 720p and 30fps and 1080p. It is equipped with a host of features that will help YouTubers, including the ability to remove backgrounds thanks to 3D scanning capabilities. With a $199 price tag, only time will tell if the savings on green screen will make it worth the high price point.
 

The Razer Nabu Watch

The Razer Nabu Watch

In addition, Razer announced the Nabu smartwat — wait, my bad — it’s not a smartwatch; it’s “a watch that is smart.” The Nabu Watch is a digital chronograph with discreet notifications much like the original Nabu, but it comes in the form of a traditional watch. It’s built to be rugged for most fitness uses, and keeps track of activities and sleep. It also has a separate notification bar that pairs with smartphones to show messages, emails and more.

The $149 price tag seems a bit high compared to competitors. However, the one-year battery life on one cell might be its saving grace.

That is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to CES 2016. Stay tuned to Gaming Illustrated for more from the show.
