    Is anyone else having problems with Haptic Engine only working part of the time?

    My seems to work intermittently.

    No disrespect or insubordination intended, but do you have the Haptic Strength set to max, and the Prominent Haptic turned on?

    Some people only seem to feel the taps intermittently or not at all until this is done. You set them in the Watch app on your iPhone. Sounds and Haptics is found below the General setting in the app.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have all that set up, but it seems as though it only works sporadically.

    Next question is are you possibly missing the haptic taps? I found on my first two watches the tap was very weak towards to end with the 2nd watch having haptic motor failure and would not do anything.

    It does take a day or two to get used to the taps but if you are up and about and moving around the tap, even at MAX, can be missed.

    I'm of the opinion that Apple should make the taps even stronger (or at least have the option to do so). When I'm moving around, I miss them ALL the time.

    May be it's your notification setting. For testing purpose, you may set that particular apps to alert mode (not banner or anything else), then you should able the get the haptic notification on your watch.

    On my second watch the haptic motor failed and would no longer do anything, no matter what settings you used.

    My first watch the haptic motor was so weak you could hardly feel it on its highest settings.

    Yep, Mine would only work sometimes. Filled in onlne form for service (they actually have a selection to select just for haptic probelms) they shipped empty box overnight for return. Dropped off watch at Fed ex monday, new watch was at house Friday. Haptic working correctly on new watch.

    Mine stopped working along with all sounds. I wiped and re-paired and it all came back. YMMV.
