    I am getting a type writer type noise since updating to watchOS 3.2. I noticed this after turning on theater mode then off..not sure if this is a new sound, or something is wrong. It doesn't sound great, so I think it might be an issue. Can someone check and let me know? Thanks.

    UPDATE: Per the sticky "All the little things", it does indeed look like the haptic feedback and sound have been changed. This thread can be deleted.

    It is just a new sound from the update. How could it be an issue?

    At first it sounded like some garbled noise I couldn't make out. Just not a pleasant sound I thought apple would use. However after a few hours I got used to it and don't mind it anymore.

    Well, that's a relief. I thought my watch had broken.

    It's a rubbish sound. Presumably it's a response to people whinging about how annoying it was to get a loud pinging noise when your watch unlocks your Mac, seeing as you already know your watch has unlocked your Mac because you're sitting right in front of your Mac watching your watch unlock it!

    But it's not a great sound. Less intrusive, I guess.

    unless you're sitting close to your mac, and someone else is sitting in front of the mac unlocking it.
