Do you feel much difference toggling between medium and high haptic strength?

In Settings, I don't get a significant difference toggling between the middle and high haptic strength options. I'm pretty sure I can tell a difference, but it's subtle. Mind you, I don't feel that either one is extremely weak or anything, they both feel pretty noticeable, it's just that they don't differ much.

How is it for you? Do you feel a big difference between the two? Just wanted to make sure this is normal behaviour, and not indicative of the faulty haptic issues that have been discussed.

EDIT: I should mention I have the 42mm SGS. Let me know which watch and band you're using.

It's weird... I notice that with my sport band on I can barely tell a difference and I sometimes miss taps because they are so subtle. (I know about prominent but I like to be able to tell whats what just by the tap and the buzz first makes everything feel the same). However, with my link bracelet I can tell a big difference between the two strengths and I never miss a notification... I think the type of band you have attached really makes a difference in how the taps feel when they vibrate through the different materials.
