So continuing my search for the perfect fitness tracker for my lifestyle I came across the Wyze Fitness Tracker. I first discovered Wyze while doing research in the Home Automation space as they make low cost Cameras and other devices. I only paid around $30 for the Fitness tracker which I felt was a pretty good deal.
From the moment you get the fitness tracker you will be able to tell that the Wyze device is in a different league. It is very light weight and I often forget I am wearing it and its display is vibrant and from what I can tell it works great. It also has some water resistance as I was able to pull the plug on my bathtub with it on and it kept working.
The Wyze app it something completely different. From the Wyze app you are able to not only control all your smart devices, but you are also able to manage your health information, integrations, and notifications. For integrations, I am able to send information from the Wyze app to Google Fit which is a definite plus for me, as I have been using it for years. You are also able to specify which apps you want to vibrate your Fitness Tracker when you get a notification. This affords me the ability to only allow apps I deem important to notify me such as SMS or Phone apps and not be spammed with Facebook notification.
One final thing that sets the Wyze Fitness tracker apart is that it has beep integrations with Alexa (which I don’t have…. yet). I can’t wait to explore the ability to control my home from my watch!!
As for the downsides for this device, I would have to say the weak point for the Wyze Fitness Tracker is that the battery only holds a charge for about a week. I have been using it for about 6 weeks now and that is really my biggest complaint.
So if you are good with having to charge your Fitness Tracker once a week, then this may be the fitness tracker for you.
I hope you found this post helpful, and if you do, please share it with your friends and families.
