Synapitcs or wacom digitizer for HP Spectre x360 convertible

Spectre x360 convertible 13
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Loving my HP Spectre X360 convertible. It's my first touchscreen laptop and it's awesome!

 

So I did some research to find which active pen/stylus would work best and it appears the Dell does. So I bought one - the Dell active pen PN556W. It connects via bluetooth and the buttons work, however I can't draw or do anything else with the actual tip of the pen (I can with my finger).

 

I have a feeling it's because this particular active pen uses the new wacom technology but the HP laptop uses the older synaptics technology - is this right? Is there a fix for this? Otherwise, does this just mean I have to get an active pen/stylus that uses synaptics technology?

 

I would prefer an answer to this question rather than a comment telling me to buy the HP active pen please.

 

Thanks, Rebecca

Lies. All of those videos are of the older model spectres. The mods here are either misinformed or are lying. or
