The Apple watch is equipped the state-of-the-art tap tic technology that taps on your wrists once you receive a notification on the Apple devices. You can experience the haptic tweak technology on your smart apple watch by installing the prominent haptic feature. But what does prominent haptic mean?
Firstly, you need to install your watch properly on your wrists. According to Apple, you can best experience the touch is the back of the watch is in contact with your skin. The strap must be tight on your hand so that the watch does not loosen when your wrists move. It must lose enough to be comfortable and tight enough to improve haptic effects.
How to Adjust Haptic Strength
The haptic strength of the Apple smartwatch can be set to vibrate at two levels of intensity. The settings are directly controlled on the wrist watch or through the paired iPhone.
- To access the app menu, press the index button and flick your wrist to wake.
- Tap on the settings and scroll down to sounds and haptic
- Adjust the haptic strength by pressing two buttons next to the haptic level. The left one reduces the intensity while the right one increases the intensity.
- Pick your apple smart watch and open the Apple watch App
- Open my watch-scroll to sounds and haptics and use the commands to change the haptic strengths
- Enable Prominent Haptic Feature
Even though you have set up the haptic settings on your watch and linked it to your iPhone, you might be the type of person who prefers a loose strap, and you may not feel the haptic alerts even when the vibration settings are at maximum. If this is the case, you should install the Prominent Haptic function which adds intensity to the haptic. The haptic has an actual vibration that feels like a tap in case of notification or alert.
From the menu on the Apple watch or the paired iOS device, you can disable or enable the feature. The prominent Haptic feature is only available with the Watch OS 1.0.1 version. To disable or enable the feature from the menu, scroll down to sounds & Haptics menu, scroll down and tap on the knob to the disable the feature.
Fact: there are different vibration patterns for different alerts. For instance, a Message notification is denoted by a single vibration while a Time to Stand alert is denoted by a double tap. With these different patterns, you can recognize the message without checking. However, it is sometimes difficult to identify the alert when the Prominent haptic is on.
