    The fact that I haven't seen this mentioned in too many other threads makes me start thinking my watch is defective. The call volume is so low that even in a silent room I struggle to hear the person I'm talking to even when it's turned up all the way. It's extremely irritating. Is this a software problem or is the speaker really that low? I feel like notification sounds are much louder than the call volume.

    ----------

    And before anyone comes here with any of those oh so original smartass comments about looking stupid talking into a watch in public and why do I need to answer calls on my watch anyway....don't. It's a really convenient feature to use around the house especially while my iPhone is in my room charging.

    I don't have my watch yet, but I saw a few threads on this before. A few people suggested that restarting the watch helps.

    Where you been everyone knows the call volume is low
    Everyone who has an apple watch , is been discussed here and in reviews


    I asked a few days ago if it was a software or a hardware problem , because the notification sound is loud
    Maybe apple made the call volume low on purpose

    If they did it on purpose then they should have just omitted the feature, because at this volume the speakerphone is useless. And that's on the highest volume, if you lower the volume its almost silent.

    If you can't hear it in a silent room its probably defective. But it's really not that loud. Anything louder would be obnoxious for the watch.. The only time I use it is if i literally can't get to my phone.

    I use the call feature while I'm driving and when I'm at home. It's too soft for public use but I got a Bluetooth headset for that.

    I'm starting to really think it's a software issue because it's so inconsistent. Voicemails and notifications are noticeably louder.
