Happy Friday! The saga continues for the Wyze Watch. Yesterday, the company started pushing an update to the Watch 44 that bricked some units. After several reports of what appear to be soft bricked watches, the company pulled the update.

And while it seems like there’s been a lot of doom and gloom around the Wyze Watch, it’s easy to forget that this is a twenty-five-dollar smartwatch. For what it costs, it’s still a pretty impressive piece of hardware … assuming that it doesn’t get bricked, anyway. Full review coming soon!
