    Hi all,

    I've gone from the SS 42mm to the new Sports Gold and love the new look...

    Only moments ago I went to use Siri and noticed that the vibration it gives after you say 'Hey Siri' or long-press the Digital Crown is significantly different from the SS model....

    The SS model vibration is heavy and deep whereas the Sports Gold is sounds like a 'cricket' and tinny...

    It may be due to the SS v Aluminium material used however just wanted to check in to see whether others can confirm this....

    Haptic feedback on both feels the same its just that vibration

    Thanks in advance

    I am sure the haptic motor feels different within the two different types of material. But, all haptic motors are not created the same and some feel different from others.

    Thanks for the reply....

    Oddest thing just happened...I noticed that I wasn't receiving haptic feedback when receiving an iMessage (not sure what happened there as I was during the day) and hard reset the AW.....I then tried Siri again and that tinny noise has gone!.....I get the 'ding' sound coupled with haptic feedback....strange....I thought things were a bit off prior to hard resetting
