Wyze Watch Review


 Wyze Watch Review

Wyze makes some of most affordable smart home devices on the market, like light bulbs and home security cameras. If you have a bunch of Wyze gadgets, you're the prime customer for the $20 Wyze Watch, which lets you set up shortcuts to control them from your wrist with a few taps. This inexpensive Apple Watch lookalike also boasts a pulse oximeter to read your blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) level, and can help you keep tabs on your calorie burn, heart rate, sleep, steps, and the date of your next period. Aside from the SpO2 sensor, however, we found its health and fitness tracking capabilities to be lackluster in testing. And apart from its smart home controls, this is about as basic as a smartwatch get.

Which Wyze Watch Is Which?
Wyze plans to offer the watch in two sizes: 44mm and 47mm. The 44mm model features a 1.73-inch case that's better sized for small wrists, while the 47mm version has a larger 1.85-inch case. 

At the time of this writing, the 44mm model is temporarily unavailable. A Wyze spokesperson says the company is currently building a page on its site specifically for that version, which is a different watch with different features aside from just size. The company plans to refer to them separately to highlight the variations in each model.

Beyond its smaller size, the 44mm model has a smaller battery (250mAh vs. 300mAh), a slightly different interface, and different clock face options (though both give you the option of adding a photo of your choice to the background). This review focuses on the 47mm Wyze Watch.

Adding to the confusion, the company also sells the $25 Wyze Band, which looks more like a traditional fitness tracker, but doesn't feature a blood oxygen sensor. The Wyze Watch has a larger screen that's better for viewing notifications, and offers what some might consider a more stylish look overall. Beyond that, the main difference is that the Band has Amazon Alexa built in, while the watch doesn't have a microphone, and thus doesn't support voice assistants. 


Wyze Watch Design and Features
With its rectangular watch face and rounded corners, the Wyze Watch can easily be mistaken for an Apple Watch at a glance, though it lacks the distinctive Digital Crown on the side.

It features a 1.75-inch TFT color touch screen with 385-by-320-pixel resolution, and a gray aluminum alloy frame with one physical button on the right side. The screen is bright and colorful, but sometimes feels a bit laggy, especially when scrolling vertically. In comparison, the Wyze Band features a smaller 0.95-inch AMOLED color touch screen with a resolution of 240 by 120 pixels. 

Wyze Watch
It comes with a simple black silicone band with a metal buckle, and is compatible with standard 22mm quick release watch straps (sold separately). It weighs 1.6 ounces and feels light and comfortable on my wrist.
