Are there any plans to implement a pulse oximeter in the Wyze Band?
I believe it may be feasible given the reflective pulse readings you aready do. The same LEDs and photodiode used in the Wyze Band for checking pulse may work for reflective pulse oximetry (of course, without checking into the specs used). Though it’s not as accurate as transmissive pulse oximetry, it could still be useful.
In this case, it’s likely it could be feasible as a firmware update and not needing a hardware change. The same LEDs and photodiodes used for reflective pulse/heart rate detection can often be used for reflective pulse oximetry. Since I don’t know which parts they used nor their implementation, I can only speculate. But, I believe it may be possible in code, which is why I made the suggestion.
Add a snore sensor to the Wyze band. The band could listen for snoring sounds based on existing algorithms and then vibrate to semi awaken snorer. The listening level could have and adjust in the app as well as the vibration level.
The Reminder to Move needs some polish. It doesn’t provide how many steps to take like my Fitbit (It is hourly and 250 steps). I haven’t found documentation for the Wyze Band on how often and the count it will go off.
I was thinking about the sleep detection. I wake up and the TV is still on, often because the TV show was too loud or bright. My mother has the same issue.
After detecting I’m asleep it would be a slick feature to turn off the TV using Alexa/Fire TV using Alexa integration.
This would require some programming but might be a cheap super-feature for Wyze R&D.
"Could you make the Wyze Band a lower profile similar to the Fitbit Charge 4? I have BOTH and end up accidently bumping the Wyze band module into things since it sits higher on the wrist. The lower fitbit Charge 4 is lower and not as susceptible to inadvertent contact.
