    So for those who may get a lot of notifications, anyone think the constant vibration on your wrist may get annoying or distracting?

    I fear the opposite... sensing the tap when the watch is on the charger... like feeling phantom phone vibrations from a phone in a pocket when it's really on the desk...

    Those are the worst. I have those happen all the time. Sometimes when my phone is in my pocket and I think it is vibrating when its just playing tricks with my mind lol

    I'm hoping the vibration is more noticeable than in my front pocket. My thought is that the wrist is a more sensitive area, so hopefully I won't miss vibrations like I do in my pocket or when my phone is on my desk at work.

    I don't think I'll get annoyed with the vibrations. I have that feature now with my MS Band and I find it useful. However, I don't get notifications every 5 minutes. More like 1 or 2 an hour. I've turned off e-mail notifications and that helps a bunch. I'm looking forward to the better integration between my Watch and my iPhone.

    Same here. I tend to keep my phone in my shirt pocket and sometimes feel phantom vibrations. It's quite eerie.

    Agree emails can get annoying with the constant notifications if you had it enabled.

    I always miss the vibrations in pocket. The iPhone isn't very strong.

    The one thing I learned from wearing the Pebble for the last year is that having greater control over what notifications are received is critical to smartwatch success. That's the big reason I'm moving on to the Apple Watch.

    As a former pebble user. My answer was yes. It got very very annoying very fast.

    To fix that I turned off vibrations entirely. Took a week for it to go away.

    I like the notifications. I have the Pebble, and I like it. I expect to like the Apple Watch even more.

    But you have to be merciless in paring back what you allow to send you notifications. Utterly merciless.

    You can adjust the strength of the wrist tap in Settings. The complete Apple Watch User Guide is now available online: http://help.apple.com/watch/
