Wyze Watch Data

Has anyone experienced problems with the watch recording steps and/or sleep data?

My watch reports as few as 1 in 100 steps when compared with several other monitors I wear. In the past 8 hours my watch reports 42 steps whereas other devices report over 8000.

The watch reports that I slept 6 hours and 6 minutes, while the app reports 4 hours and 41 minutes. Neither corresponds with my Oura ring, Hband watch or ResMed + non contact sleep monitor.

The watch does not provide notifications.

I’ve worked as a design qualifications engineer for nearly 50 years for nearly as many high tech companies (50) as a consulting engineer and am no novice. I’ve even designed and developed medical devices under FDA regulations. I don’t believe I’ve missed anything in product setup and use.

I have as many problems with the Wyze scale as well and volunteered in its testing to no avail, if anyone is interested in my observations.

My watch records at about 60-75% of the steps my phone tracks. My phone stays in a phone pocket in my cargo pants. I’ve really never questioned the accuracy. As for the sleep, after reading a little on what it is based on, I think it is mostly guessing based on the accelerometer and movements or lack of.
