This is Arthur from Wyze. I am the product manager of Wyze Band. It’s been a long journey to develop this product, and I am thrilled to share some extra info before its Early Access launch next Tuesday (9:00 AM Pacific Time).
Wyze Band is not a repurposed fitness tracker made by another company out there. This is something that we built from the ground up. What we envision in Wyze Band is a new dimension for you to easily control your smart home ecosystem and receive information in the most convenient way. Activity tracking is there too.
Here are the features you will get with the EA launch and how they could be part of your life:
Control your Wyze devices from your wrist with Shortcuts.
Alexa Built-In: Press and hold the Home button on the Wyze Band to ask Alexa to control other devices or to get Alexa responses shown on screen.
** By the way, Alexa is not always listening on Wyze Band. It is not active until you unlock the screen and press the Home button for 2 seconds. It will not keep listening for the wake word.
120x240 AMOLED color screen. You can set any image as the background image for the home page on the band. It is easy and straight-forward. Personally, I love the feeling of seeing my dog and family every time I check the time.
It stays with you and it is always accessible. Wyze Band is 5ATM water resistant and the battery lasts for 10 - 14 days under normal usage.
The basic activity tracking functions: Heart Rate Monitoring, Step Count, Calorie Tracking, and Sleep Tracking & Analysis.
Phone calls, SMS, or any app push notifications can be shown on the band and alert you with a vibration.
The basic watch functions: Time, Date, Alarm Clock, and Reminder.
You might get everything above in a upscale smart watch somewhere between $150 to $190. Wyze Band is $24.99 + shipping.
If you have any questions, please post them here and I will try my best to respond. We’ll also be doing a live AMA (Ask Me Anything) event on launch day at 12:00 PM Pacific Time. We’ll send out a link in advance so everyone can join us then.
