When Razer announced its Nabu wearable wrist band, gamer geeks everywhere rejoiced as there was finally a wearable that was geared towards their hobby. Unfortunately, wearable wrist bands have made headlines of late with outbreaks of skin irritation and resulting recalls that cost companies millions.




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.
