    Question Do you have to wear your Apple Watch tightly to feel notifications?

    So, is it just me, or does one have to wear their watch, tight? Why? To feel the notifications, better...


    For me, mine is on the fourth spot, on the watch band. What about you?

    Default Re: Tight, or?

    I have to wear mine where it fits snug and it's comfy on my wrist. I've never been a big watch person so this has been something to adjust to wearing.

    This is mine, in the fourth hole on the strap. Sometimes I miss messages. I'm beginning to think it's because I wear it on the higher end of my wrist...

    Your best bet is to set your Haptic Strength to max in your Watch app. You can also enable Prominent Haptic.

    Already set on max. But, I just turned on Prominent Haptic. Let's see how this works out...

    I wear mine loose, you can fit like 2 pennies between the watch and my wrist. That way I can adjust it higher up my wrist if I need to. Also, it makes me feel the Haptic much better than when it's too tight.

    I wear mine snug, but not tight.

    That's the way I like it. When I take it off, there's only the slightest indentation left on my wrist showing that I was wearing the Watch. Holding my Watch as i your avatar, I can wiggle it and the entire band will move over my wrist but the Watch won't slide a bit. I've never had it lock, nor miss a notification in any casual activity.

    I have prominent feedback turned on. Without it, I could hardly feel anything. I prefer the stronger vibration of the pebble time. And i wear it snug but not tight.

    Default Do you have to wear your Apple Watch tightly to feel notifications?

    I wear mine snug but not tight. The type of band really makes a difference on how I wear any watch. I wear A leather band much tighter than a bracelet band. Once/if I ever get the  Link bracelet I will probably miss a lot of notifications.
    I have haptic feedback at max...
