    Anyone finding the tactic engine weaker than expected? I know mine isn't faulty because I thought the daft same thing when I tried it on in the store.

    When I receive digital touch notifications, particularly heartbeat, it's very strong. But for messages not so strong even though I have it turned right up with prominent haptic option.

    I still love it, just expected it to be a little stronger. Anyone feel the same?

    I'm not sure, on my apple watch is strong enough to feel it, I think Apple deliberately didn't want it to be too strong, it's meant to be totally discreet.

    I personally wouldn't want it any stronger. Having said that, it probably depends how tight you the wear the strap. My strap is quite tight at the moment. On the sport band, I have it on the 3rd hole. The 4th hole is just too loose for me. Will be getting a different band as soon as I can .

    Completely agree with this... If I'm sitting still I can feel the haptic feedback from notifications but if I'm moving about and one comes through I often miss it yet digital touch is fine. Not sure I'd be comfortable wearing mine any tighter.

    I always wear my watches quite snug and it works great for me.

    I doesn't work every time. Reminder doesn't tap me but played a sound on the watch.
    I don't know if this only happen to reminders app but it's odd.
