Make It Your Own With 22 mm Quick-Release Straps
Wyze Watch comes with a comfortable silicone strap, but you can switch to a leather strap or silicone band to better match your personal style.
I previously had the Wyze Band, the area where the band connects broke in less than two months, so they sent me another one for free, but the replacement broke in the same spot in little over two months.
So the Wyze Band clearly has a design flaw with its band, and so I am glad that the Wyze Watch came out just in time for me to replace the Wyze Band.
The Wyze Watch has a better normal watch design & it has a bigger & better screen than the Wyze Band, unfortunately it does not have a microphone, and so there is no virtual assistant support & there are no speakers.
Though it is missing a feature or two compared to the Wyze Band, the Wyze Watch is better overall & more reliable & durable in my opinion, but sometimes the updates cause problems.
So Wyze needs to continue to improve things on the update & software side of things, and I hope that they will add new features.
Wyze needs to take more time to test & prepare their hardware & software in my opinion, they are rushing things out too fast, and they need to better listen to the feedback of the beta testers.
Do not get the 44mm version of the Wyze Watch, known as Wyze Watch 44mm, it is worse in almost every way compared to the Wyze Watch 47mm, and so the Wyze Watch 47mm is the superior version.
The Wyze Watch 44mm has a different interface than the Wyze Watch 47mm, the advertising did not mention this, which I think counts as false advertising in a way, so shame on Wyze.
Fortunately, they took down the Wyze Watch 44mm from their website, but they should have offered to send a Wyze Watch 47mm for free to those who wanted one after learning the truth.
If you want a cheap starter semi-smart watch from an American (United States) company, I would recommend giving the Wyze Watch 47mm a try, and I hope that the next version will be even better.
