Got my Wyze Band today and after using it for two hours, I have made a few observations which I’d like to bring to the Wyze team’s attention. Pardon me if these issues have been raised in other forum posts as I haven’t possibly read all of them. Also, this may be a long post. Settle in.
First of all, is there a way to turn OFF the Wyze Band? Can’t find it in the instructional material or band settings (which only has Reset and Reboot options). I use several fitness bands and I would like the option to turn it off and conserve battery life when not in use rather than let it drain to 0% and shut off.
The vibrator motor has only one intensity which I consider rather jarring. Are there future firmware options to modulate this intensity? A less startling pulse would be welcome.
There is a persistent Wyze app notification icon on the top status bar of my Android phone (Galaxy Note 10+, Android 10(Q), WyzeBeta app). Cosmetic, maybe but I dislike the clutter. I know the Wyze app has to run in the background for notifications and Alexa to work, but no other app that runs in the background (GMail, for instance) leaves an icon there. Even when I get Wyze notifications for my cameras, the icon doesn’t stick around so I don’t know why the band has it always present. Turning off said icon in the notification bar settings (which dismisses it) also turns off all Wyze notifications, which isn’t desirable.
I am still fiddling about with the band and I will make other observations here if I consider them relevant.
