First, I had the broken retainer pin, robbed one out of the alternate band, that fixed that, but the other day, the band was loose again, and the pin dropped out, and the watch face and band separated enough to where I can see the band itself is breaking as shown in a previous post on this thread. I’ve had a number of watches in my lifetime (yes, I’m so old, I toot dust), and I’ve just never had a problem like this with any device I’ve worn on my wrist.
I do have one “sports band” where the band itself broke but it that was a combination of the material and how the band thinned right at the point where it broke (no strain relief in a high flex area).
I like the original band that it came with, and I’m worried that this band will fail completely, so I’m not in any hurry to switch to it.
Also, I’m not exactly “Mr. Active”, so I don’t think I shouldn’t really be having this much trouble. I will say the Wyze band does catch on things from time to time, but so did my other bands and that was never a problem.
I like the Wyze band (although it seems to lose connection to my phone all the time - just when I want to use the shortcut that I use to turn my Wyze bulb over my bench on and off), but these things are preventing it from being indispensable - like a product like this should be.
Cheap isn’t good if you can’t use the product - then it’s not cheap, it’s worthless. For a few cents more, I don’t think this would be a problem. It would be nice to have Wyze address the problem instead of ignoring it.
