    At first I thought I was going crazy, but I paid close attention today and I'm pretty sure that I no longer get haptic feedback when I complete each mile. I feel the half-way point notification, and the "you've reached your goal" notification, but I no longer get a tap at miles 1, 2, 3, and so on.

    Has anyone else noticed or is it just me?

    While I rarely notice the subtle single mile marker tap while running I did notice it a couple of times yesterday. So it is working in wOS2, at least using 'Open'.

    Under OS1, I rarely noticed the feedback once I hit a mile marker and come to think about it, I don't recall getting on on OS2. I'll be heading out for a run at lunch hour, I'll try to see if occurs as I approach the mile markers.

    I never set a work out goal, but keep it open, so from that perspective, my usage is different enough not to be helpful.

    In "open" it works...
    Had a 11km run last evening and was tapped 11 times ;-)

    I still get feedback when at each mile and when I reach a goal.

    Thank you everyone for your responses. I rarely ever use "Open" because I like the feeling of reaching a goal as silly as it sounds (9.35 for me!)

    Do you normally use "Open" like the folks above?

    Thank you. It sounds like this has changed in Watch OS2 or it's a bug.


    I'll fill out the feedback form and I would appreciate it if others did the same if you also miss the tap at the mile markers.

    Okay, I feel stupid, but I haven't found how to do this yet... I hate picking rando calorie numbers!

    Swipe all the way to the right, the last option is "Open. No goal."

    I do a 3 mile Outdoor walk twice a day and have always received a notification at each mile and at the half way point. Since upgrading to Watch os2 I no longer get the mile notifications.

    I receive and feel the feedback of every mile marker and half way point with OS2. It has never failed actually. Even indoor walks and runs. I've done both indoor since the update and those work as well.

    Strange. I have unpaired and repaired my watch twice now and when doing a distance target Outdoor Walk no longer receive mile notifications :-(
