Sorry for the delay!
The freestyle exercise mode allows you to have health metrics that work for exercise outside of running. The red dot just lets you know when we want to show you something new. The multiple device login notification will only come into play if you try to use your Wyze Band with multiple devices.
The hour format is decided based on the paired device’s format. For most folks, that will be a phone.
To access the new features, make sure that you have your app and the band firmware fully updated before syncing them again.
Are folks still seeing rapidly draining battery?
Sorry to hear about the swimming Wyze Band, goddessofblueridge!
