    i have my watches notification volume as high as it will go, however since the last update it sometimes becomes unusually loud to the point where a text message 'ding' will actually be quite painful to the ears. Other times is just normal.

    Anyone else getting this?

    I've noticed that some dings are louder than others. Similarly for the haptic feedback as well : Gmail is super strong while the stock email app is not very strong.

    Yesterday, when one of my messages came through I thought someone had rang a bell in my ear lobe... it was so loud. I think this may be happening at random times as well.

    I thought this was a feature with 2.0.1 until I noticed eventually the notifications would be quieter. It seems to happen at random.

    Yeah I agree its random. The first time I noticed it I rebooted the watch and it returned to normal. However, of its own accord, it goes so loud is sounds like its going to blow its tiny speaker. I have turned the sound down to half way now.
