Wyze, the company that makes affordable smart bulbs, plugs, sensors, and locks, is back with new products for your consumption. This time around, though, the focus is a little less on smart homes and more on fitness. The company announced a new Wyze Band and Wyze Scale, for $25 and $20 respectively. And the band doubles as a smart home controller.
Wyze has been pretty open about its intentions in the past and often posts an “upcoming list” of the products it’s developing. So the Wyze Band isn’t surprising—but the price is. At just $25, it’s one of the cheapest fitness bands on the market.
But while it tracks all the usual fitness metrics, like activity, heart rate, and sleep, it goes beyond fitness. The Wyze Band has Alexa built into the device, which will let you control your Alexa powered smart home from your wrist.
It’s rated at 5ATM, which means you can submerge it up to 50 meters for 10 minutes, and the company is promising 10-day battery life.
The Wyze Scale, on the other hand, is all about fitness. It measures body fat, lean body mass, heart rate, and eight other “essential metrics.”
It works with the Wyze app and other popular fitness apps starting with Apple Health and Google Fit. The company promises that Fitbit and Samsing Health compatibility will follow.
You can share the scale with family, of course, and it will automatically recognize who is standing on it based on recent stats. Four AAA batteries power the Wyze Scale.
