For some, the taps on your wrist for each new alert just isn't strong enough.
One of the primary functions of the Apple Watch is to replace your iPhone's notification chimes with a gentle tap on your wrist and an audible notification.
The combination of the two are often more than enough to get my attention, but I've had a few friends and readers contact me asking if there was a way to increase the intensity of the alert.
Their main complaint was that alerts were being missed, even after having adjusted the Haptic Strength in the watch's settings. But just under that same Haptic Strength setting, there's another option for those having a hard time feeling notifications.
That setting is called Prominent Haptic. When enabled, the watch will vibrate just before an alert. There are two different methods for enabling the feature, both with the same outcome.
In experimenting with this feature, I found it to be overkill but if you're someone who has a hard time feeling alerts on your Apple Watch, it's worth a shot.
