    Default Gear 2 vibration

    Is the following problem/annoyance happening to everyone or just me? The vibration on my gear 2 is garbage. Even on the "strong" setting it feels like it's cheap and not crisp like my galaxy s4 is. S4 is a nice quick, strong, crisp pulse. Gear 2 feels like a bird trying to fly with a broken wing or something.

    I'm sure it has to do with battery size. 2600mAh vs 300mAh. Kind of like how licking a 9 volt battery is unpleasant, but a car battery will shock the **** out of you. Also, don't you think the manufacturers assume that your phone will be vibrating in your pocket, through clothes, as opposed to on your wrist, tight against your skin? It is weak, but I understand why.

    The gear 2 vibration is substantially weaker than the gear 1 vibration. So far it is the one thing I am truly disappointed in, though I haven't yet missed an alert.

    Exactly the same here. My Smartwatch 2 was MUCH stronger!

    I don't know what you guys are on about, my vibration is set to high and it sets a sensational tingling effect to my wrist when it vibrates. I love it.

    If I am sitting still I notice the vibration, but I have missed some notifications whilst I'm being physically active. I wish it were stronger.
