    I feel free now.
    I was constantly checking my iPhone thinking it had vibrate. Since Apple Watch no more !!!

    Anyone else feel same way?

    Funny, I now have the problem that I think my wrist is being tapped even when i've removed the watch.:rolleyes:

    I was the opposite...I would never hear my phone or feel it vibrate, so I kept missing calls and texts because I'd never check the phone. Now, my watch prevents that.

    Lol I really thought that was only me. I am constantly pressing my hand against my phone from outside my pocket to see if it's vibrating. It never is.

    Interesting you should say this we were just discussing this at work with one of the pediatric residents. A coworker was having hot spots on her leg where her phone had previously been in her pocket. He had this really long explanation about quadricep muscles and whatever
    Long story short he said its over stimulation of one of the quadricep muscles. He told her too put a hot pack on it lol

    Same here! It's true that Apple could definitely afford to make the taptic engine a bit more prominent

    The regular haptic doesn't work well with me so I turned on the prominent haptic setting and it works much better.

    But even if I miss it, I look at my watch now and then and notice the red dot for missed notifications which is easier than constantly taking out my phone.

    True, it absolutely is.

    Have you tried navigation from your watch? I find it very hard to distinguish the left/right tap sequences.
