The Razer Nabu fitness smartband is getting a relaunch in October

Remember the Razer Nabu fitness smartband? Well, Razer wants you to know that the wearable is finally launching, or rather re-launching, in October. The Nabu, which was first announced in January 2014 at CES, will have a few design changes along the way.

You may remember that, after months of delays, the Razer Nabu was supposed to launch in late 2014. As it turned out, only a handful of people got their hands on the smartband, and their feedback on the product sent Razer's design team back to make some changes to the Nabu, including putting its main button on top and putting in a magnetic clasp on the side.

The Razer Nabu will still have a small OLED screen that can notify users of any incoming smartphone emails, text messages and more. Two Nabu owners can share social media information and data with each other's band if they shake hands. There will also be an updated smartphone companion app for the Nabu that will offer users a number of fitness and sleep tracking statistics.

Pre-orders for the Razer Nabu relaunch start on September 15 for $99.99 and shipments will begin in October.
