I received the Wyze Band a few days ago, and firstly, good product for so little cost.
But I’m having a little trouble getting some things to work.
I’m not receiving any notifications to the phone. I have enabled notifications in the Wyze app, and allowed Gmail and a couple other apps through, but notifications never seem to appear on the watch. I checked the Android settings, and all Wyze notification types are allowed.
Even if these notifications worked, I’m unable to enable phone or SMS notifications. I get an error saying, “This function will be available after Google Play grants the permission.”. I’m not sure where to enable that permission.
While I can ping the band using the “find” feature, I can’t ping the phone from the band.
These all seem to boil down to an issue with running in the background. I have a OnePlus device, which doesn’t show up in the “Running in the Background” list of phone models. I have disabled battery optimization for Wyze, but I’m not sure if there’s another setting I should alter.
I do have access to the Wyze shortcuts, though, and Android does indicate that Wyze is running in the background. So this might not be the issue.
