Razer says that it has decided to delay the launch of its Nabu in order to see if it is safe to wear long-term. "While we're 100-percent confident that there won't be any problems with the Nabu, we've engaged medical professionals and are running medical tests to make doubly sure that by the time the Nabu gets on your wrists, it is fully certified hypoallergenic," advises said Razer's co-founder, Min-Liang Tan.
