    It shouldn't be doing that unless you have the MacID app installed

    I know what you mean it is really annoying. I doubt Apple will give an option to turn it off though because from their perspective it is a security feature. Imagine someone opens your MacBook when you aren't looking.

    Yea I could see that but damn the range is like 3 feet..don't think it be an issue...maybe just allow it to be Taptic feedback or change the noice...the lack of tone changing on watch really pisses me off

    Agreed. The notification is annoying, the first thine I did was look for a way to turn it off.
