Wyze band crashing/rebooting while taking shower

3rd time in a row makes me think my band is defective. Within a minute of stepping into the shower it crashes/reboots and shows that little white bar until about 5mins after removed from water and dried.

I guess I’m the only one having this problem?

Any way to get ahold of support? multiple tickets unanswered for days.

The support group is apparently swamped, hang in there someone will get to you.

Wow, a month is way too long to wait. I am not sure what to advise you. If you see a post from anyone at Wyze try messaging them.

I just take mine off in the shower, I think the water droplets swipe the screen till it ends up rebooting.

oh that’s interesting, the engineer in me wants to run some tests.

i would be really surprised if that’s what is happening. the unlock mechanism is very difficult for me to even do with my finger. It would have to be a firehose to unlock mine. And my band crashes/reboots very quickly as soon as exposed to water. It would take me longer to unlock it and get to the settings and reboot it.

I think you’re on to something. A simple slow stream of water under the faucet and the band goes nuts with ghost inputs.

I would not expect water to be registered as someone tapping as fast as a Tasmanian devil on the band.

i just saw a video that the apple watch actually has a shower/water mode you can put it into. I think to prevent this type of thing from happening, but I’m not really sure what it modifies. I know that afterwards it has another function that will blow water out of the speaker.

I get the same results. Went swimming with a 70% charged band and now I have a black screen. No response from the watch.

I’ve noticed while in the shower when the water hits the screen acts like it is being touched. I’ve tried to keep it directly out of the path of the water but today I looked down when I turned the water off and noticed it was on the pairing code screen.
Evidently it made it’s way to the factory reboot screen and wiped out my data for the day, or it just crashed it thinking the screen was being “touched” so much.
So long you lovely 14,777 steps :frowning:

My biggest problem with the Wyze Band that made me want to send it back on the first day, the only thing that stopped me was the announcement of the Wyze Watch and the fact that I want to support Wyze & give them a chance, is that the screen unlocks & options get selected every time that I wash my hands & take a bath & put my arms behind my back.

I am commenting here first, but I may start my own thread about this because this is very annoying; and the Wyze Band has been out for probably more than half a year, and this issue has not been fixed.

There needs to be an improved lock screen or something to stop water & back presses against your shirt et cetera from unlocking the screen & selecting options.

Just got mine all synced, programmed, and it kept buzzing constantly in the shower, then rebooted. GRRR

Yeah it’s pretty sad the band has been all but abandoned by wyze. No updates in months (edit: 10 MONTHS!!!) and it’s still got very prominent flaws.

Yeah, it is not looking good, I am concerned about the future of the Wyze Band & Wyze Watch & Wyze itself.

I bought the Wyze Band for myself and some of my family, the issues have not been fixed or addressed, and so I have not bothered to make my own thread.

I already pre-ordered the Wyze Watch for myself and others, if it has these issues & if it does not impress, then I might give up on Wyze or at least get some of those things from other companies; which will be a shame because I wanted to support an American company.
