    The taptic feedback vibrate when you get notification or someone send the tap to you . It's all we know about Apple Watch .
    Does the taptic feedback can give the feel, drawing on your wrist when someone send sketch to you or when the Mickey foot tap the floor we can feel it ?
    Is it possible in this 1st gen?

    No, it's mainly for notifications and someone sending you taps with digital touch. The taps are not pinpoint accurate. Taps can feel different depending on the notification, but they'll all be tapping you in the same spot on the wrist.

    If I had Mickey Mouse tapping me every second I would end up destroying my new watch from the insanity it would cause. :)

    Do we know if it makes a sound like when a phone vibrates? Or is this imperceptible to people around you?

    It would be nice if the tap can happen when the clock strikes on the hour. 9 o'clock, 10 o'clock, etc.

    During my try on the taps were very subtle and I couldn't hear them.

    ----------

    That's not a bad idea, but it'd have to be a different kind of tap so you'd know it's not a notification of some sort. Might get too confusing.

    I'm really intrigued to feel these taps when I get my watch.

    For those who may not have had a try-on appointment yet, the demo that runs on the watches they put on you do have occasional taps (one from a pop-up notification, one signaling completion of a health goal, and another showing what it's like to receive someone's heartbeat) so you can feel what they're like.

    They are generally subtle (except for the heartbeat - that one creeped me out a bit), and I don't recall whether I heard anything as the tap sensation slightly startled me the first time I felt it.

    I do think it'll take some getting used to.

    I read that it's apparently specific enough to indicate left and right turns when using turn by turn guidance with Maps. Good for keeping your eyes on the road and a step above using the iPhone for guidance.

    I didn't hear a thing, with my pebble vibrate I sure do. I was taken aback by how quiet it was

    Apparently it was originally going to be different patterns for different turns, but none of the reviews I've seen mentioned anything beyond just a tap to let you know a turn was coming up.

    Perhaps they figured out that if you came to a five way intersection, you were in trouble :)
