Razer’s latest entry into the wearable space is a watch. But it isn’t a smartwatch.

The Razer Nabu Watch is a digital watch with Razer’s distinctive black and green color scheme. But it also has sensors for fitness tracking and Bluetooth connectivity for notifications, communications, and a few other features.

Razer is taking orders for a stainless steel Razer Nabu Watch Forged Edition now for $200, and a polycarbonate Nabu Watch is coming soon for $150.

The watch looks a lot like a non-smart watch, and with up to 12 months of battery life from a coin cell CR2032 battery, it acts like one too. You can use it as a stopwatch or countdown timer, set alarms, and view world time.

But there’s also a secondary 128 x 16 pixel OLED display which can show notifications from your phone and a vibration motor that can let the watch buzz to notify you when you’re not looking. There’s a 3-axis accelerometer which can track your motion. And since the watch links to your phone, it can also automatically keep the time synchronized.

All of those smart features rely on a separate rechargeable battery though, so you will have to charge the phone at least once a week if you want to use the notification, step counting, sleep tracking, and other features.
