Another of its new products is the Wyze Band, a $25 fitness tracker that can also control your smart home devices.

I've been trying out the new Wyze Band for the past week, and while there's a surprising amount of functionality for a wearable product that costs so little, there are a few software quirks that ruin the experience.
