I would love to see the Wyze Band and Wyze Watch support a “persistent Bluetooth” option (perhaps with a warning to the user that this will greatly reduce battery life). A persistent connection would enable Android users to use Bluetooth “Smart Lock” to keep their phone unlocked when the watch/band is connected. This would also lay the groundwork for other features I’d love to see added to the Wyze Watch / Band like automatic health data syncing in the background and phone media control from my wrist.
If this is the reason my shortcuts to turn/off Wyze plug and outdoor plug with watch don’t work when iphone is locked, then this is a great tradeoff for reduced battery life. +1 vote
It would be great to control other wyze products like the lights, thermostat, door lock with the new wyze watch. How about Identity of caller along with the vibration.
Agreed. It’s not a visible bluetooth device to add as a trusted device to keep the phone unlocked when together. It also doesn’t notify when the watch is separated from the phone. Both are a great features on the Samsung Gearfit. Would be willing to charge more frequently to have this. Could this be a toggled option?
I wish I had known the Wyze Watch couldn’t be used to keep my phone unlocked before I bought it. I have an Amazfit Bip that has this feature and still manages to go nearly two weeks between charges, so I doubt it’s a battery life concern. Maybe Wyze can fix it with a software update.
Its $20 the software will improve it has with all Wyze products.
