This Week in Youth Ministry Podcast is giving away a Nabu X! It’s one of the latest products from Razer and is part fitness monitor and part social activity monitor in one piece of wearable tech.  Go here to [enter] now.

Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 12.21.27 PMAs an fitness monitor, the Nabu X tracks steps, calories, distance and sleep along with its companion app for iOS and Android (Windows soon to come). One nifty feature with its sleep tracking is that you can set the band to either automatically go into sleep mode, or wait for you to manually enter sleep mode.

Compared with the original Nabu smartband, the NabuX is part social activity monitor, functioning with a multicolored light system, to notify you of texts, phone calls, and emails. The LED lights can be customized to illuminate for specific notifications, and they light up to show you your daily step goal percentages too!  In addition to these (and many other features), the NabuX battery life is good for 5-7 days and is water resistant up to 1m.

And you can WIN one for FREE from the Podcast.  Just simply go here to [enter]. Refer a friend and get 5 more entries = 5  more chances to win!  Hurry, this contest goes away on July 8th.  Enter [here] now!  And thanks for listening to #ThisWeekinYM!
