    Can anyone who has both the original Apple Watch (Apple Watch 0) compared the strength of the taps with the Apple Watch series 2?

    I'm debating about upgrading and my biggest complaint is that the taptic engine on my original Apple Watch is just not strong enough. I often miss alerts when I'm out and about. I was hoping they found some way to make the alerts stronger in the latest version, but since nobody has mentioned anything specifically, I'm guessing it feels exactly the same.

    Any new Apple Watch series 2 owners care to chime in? :)

    I went from series 0 to series 1 and the taptic feedback is noticeably weaker. A bit disappointing. Not sure on the series 2, but ifixit said the taptic engine is larger on the 2.
