Wyze, the smart home company best known for its range of Internet-connected security cameras, has announced its debut watch. The Wyze Watch will be available in two sizes – 44mm and 47mm – when it launches in the US in February 2021, and like the rest of the company’s range, it’s priced at $ 20. Wyze’s announcement follows the launch of the company’s first training track, $ 25 Wyze Band, earlier this year.
The watch comes with a fairly standard range of smartwatch features, including blood oxygen monitoring, heart rate tracking, IP68 water and dust resistance, nine days of battery life, activity and sleep tracking, and integration with Google Fit and Apple Health. However, the watch will also be integrated with Wyze̵
In terms of specifications, the 44 mm Wyze Watch has a 1.4-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 320 x 320 and a 260 mAh battery. The 47mm version has a 1.75-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 320 x 385 and a 300mAh battery. Both have 16 MB of storage. Neither offers GPS tracking nor support for voice assistants.
