Wyze was initially outlined exclusively for its smart home security gadgets and inexpensive cameras, but now it has started expanding into wearable technology device manufacturing. They have recently launched a product that is even more exciting and hard to overlook, and that is the Wyze Band. It is one of the latest fitness trackers that the year 2020 has witnessed so far that comes with an internal storage of 288KB, 8MB external storage, and 16MB flash memory.

The unique feature of this fitness band is the Alexa integration that stands out among other fitness bands in the market. It is not very surprising because that is what is expected from a company that has specialized in smart home gadgets.
Apart from Alexa, there are other attractive features as well, like step counting, sleep, and heart rate monitoring. In comparison to other fitness bands, it’s battery life is unmatchable. Its bright colors and crystal clear display make it super classy. A tap can easily activate Alexa on the screen. No other fitness band can provide you with a feature that allows you to access Alexa directly from your wrist. There is no speaker for the verbal replies, though. The text appears on the screen.
Another very admirable feature that has been added to the product is the Wyze Scale, whose function is not just limited to measuring body weight. It’s beyond that! Along with analyzing body composition, body fat, and lean body mass, it can also do step counting, sleep, and heart-rate tracking, which is easily visible in the Wyze app, starting with Apple Health and Google Fit. The ability to track up to eight different users is quite impressive.

Where to buy – you can pre-book your product at wyze.com. Other online sites are also available like amazon, digitaltrends.com, pcmag.com, etc.
– in-built Alexa is a major add on through which you can control non-wyze devices as well.
-the screen is not very straight, which might cause inconvenience.
-the strap is a bit problematic to wear.
Overall, I would like to give a big thumbs up to this product because it has a pretty good round-up of features, that too at a meager cost. Though it’s responsivity is not up to the mark, its ability to wake up on tapping makes it quite praiseworthy. It lacks the ability to check text messages and send notifications alert, but it does allow you to control your smart home devices that, too, with so much ease that you cannot give it a miss.
