I'm not getting any tactic notifications. Very similar to what Gruber wrote about on his first unit.
Hopefully you can get yours fixed. I noticed mine is very light feeling(thinking that's how it's supposed to be) but I can't feel it while I am walking.
Any notifications at all? Look at your watch settings on your iPhone.
Mine also seems very light to me, even at the highest setting. I have nothing to compare it to, since I've never tried one of these before, but it seems easy to miss.
Go in notifications and go to messages or whatever other app, and make sure it's not on "mirror iPhone" make sure it's "custom" and in custom you can turn tactic on
I will see the red dot when I activate the screen indicating new notifications have come, but I am not feeling anything on the taptic engine when notifications arrive.
Are you walking, moving around? I think it's too lite of motion to feel while moving.
Make sure you're not using your phone or have your screen on. I believe you will only get notifications on one device at a time. IE: if phone is off you get notified on watch only. If phone is on, you get notified on phone only.
I missed one while in class, but I haven't missed one yet while at work. Not sure, but it seems like it needs to be a little stronger than it is. I'm at the highest setting as well.
And what is with the prominent haptic feedback feature?
My phone is nearby but the screen is off.
Did you put message notifications on custom yet?
What are the Settings in the iPhone Notification Settings of the App . If you disabled Sound Turn this on ans try Again
This is not right. My watch actually scared me the first time I felt it. Thought someone was about to grab the watch off my wrist.
You can adjust the strength, I think. Also, is the band too loose?
I'm starting to think it's not a problem with the taptic engine, my phone may not be sending notifications to my watch.
Same for me!
If it helps, I went to 2 try-on appts. and did the demo both times with different watches on and was struck as to how subtle the taptic notification was, that it might be easy to miss so there is probably nothing wrong with your watch in my estimation.
The problem seems to be two-fold. One, notifications aren't waking up the watch, I have to engage the watch before I receive the notifications. And two, the taptic engine, even at the highest setting, is just a very slight barely noticeable buzz.
The prominent feature does a long vibration before any other vibrations occur with the notification.
A) Return the watch
B) Take it to the Apple Store
I'm off the genius bar. No buzz/vibrate at all on anything. Phone off, watch off. If an email comes in, watch lights up, zero taptic.
However, worse feature missing is no phone calls showing on my screen. Called Apple, we reset everything, tried again. Phone locked, Watch on my wrist...phone call comes in, phone rings lights up. Watch does nothing.
Call goes to voicemail. Message left. Nothing touched. Watch never announced incoming call, missed call or voicemail. They believe it's a hardware issue.
Great. Highly doubt the apple store has any of these.
My watch is also not getting phone calls.
Do you have wifi calling on?
Do YOU have wifi calling on?
The call issue you have is software, not hardware. If it works with any other kind of notification at all then it is 100% not hardware. Hardware will not just work for certain notifications (like e-mail), then not others (like calls). That is a software glitch.
Your Taptic issue may well be hardware related though.
Sound like WatchOS 1.0 is very buggy! Wonder how long until 1.1 comes out. Also, is it possible to do a restore on the watch and re-install WatchOS from scratch like you can with iOS incase it's just a corrupt install??
