I don’t have access to that private group…but I’ll take your word for it! Thanks.

ahh, sorry…it’s just the wyze FB beta group, anyone can join :slight_smile:


Why isn’t there an option to adjust the screen timeout? There isn’t much time to read the Weather, or pick a Shortcut for example.

If you look at the posts above… It looks like they are looking into it.

When a notification arrives on the Wyze Band the screen doesn’t stay on long enough to read them.

My Pebble watch has the ability to stay on for 8 seconds… just the right amount of time.

Considering the band holds a charge for a week, I’d be willing to charge the band more often if the screen would stay on longer during notifications.

Make it a choice in the settings… Choose screen on time… 3 sec 5 sec 8 sec etc.

As posted by m.w.hayes70 in the following post that is in the early-access-wish, I would like to request a feature to allow the time to always be displayed.

While I’d be okay with the time displaying on a black background, I realize a few additional features could really extend the usefulness of an always on display, so, instead of recreating a feature list, I just copied m.w.hayes70’s list below:

  • Since the screen is AMOLED, I propose a mode without a picture to conserve power. Just a configurable brightess/color with a time only option (could show the pic if you wish as well).
  • Allow Time, Time and Date, Time and Date and Pic
  • Allow schedule of this option. Ex: wake alarm till sleep, always, when awake, or time range
  • Allow configurable brightness to help with power
  • Allow configurable font/size to help with power
  • Allow ‘show battery’ on this mode

Thank you for the consideration!

I would like the watch notifications to last a bit longer. By the time I free my hand and roll my wrist over the notification has cleared. I understand that it will effect battery life but for me it would be more of a benefit to me to see the notification without having to unlock the screen and look up the note.

You can set the display on duration time now. I believe it was with the FW (August 10, 2020) update.

Thank you!

No problem! Sorry for the late notice.

With the introduction of Flashlight - this is an awesome tool! It’d be great if flashlight overrode the screen time and stayed on until turned off.

Can you please let me know where? I’ve looked through all the settings I could find and didn’t see that option.

Let me flag the @mavens to see if someone can help. I haven’t used the watch in awhile so I’m not familiar with the settings anymore.

I assume you mean Band, not Watch. The watches don’t have a variable display on duration.

Go into the Band’s home page on your list of devices. You will see a vertical column of icons. At the bottom will be a gear icon. Touch that. Then touch the pictorial “Settings”.

Towards the bottom you will see Display on duration. Touch that. Then set it to any time up to 10 seconds.

@cheaplikeafox – This Wishlist item was resolved almost a year ago. Can we get it marked as “Launched”? Any new requests should go to new Wishlist items, one request per item. :slight_smile:


Yeah I meant the band. Sorry for the confusion. I’ll see if can get updated to launched. Thanks.


Ugh. I meant the watch and would be great to get an option for a few more seconds.
Hard to time a pulse when the screen goes dark.

oh. Yeah the watch screen timeout options are only on the band unfortunately. This wishlist item below has requests for this option.
