Hey guys. When I get a notification my watch doesn't vibrate. It does when I pull down to mute un-mute but not when I get a notification

I can't find anything in the app settings

I'm pretty sure I had to set the app on my phone to vibrate to make the watch vibrate too.

Same here unless I'm just not feeling it. Can't find any settings to change it.

You have to make sure the app on the phone has Vib checked off. I also noticed facebook double vibs but hangouts and gmail dont.

mine was vibrating (softly like every one else's) and then it just stopped. I had the box checked and everything seemed to be in order. I had to do a factory reset on the watch and that fixed it

btw, I was trying to use the Nato watch straps like i did on my pebble, but the vibrations are so weak that I can't use Nato bands and still feel the vibrations. Any one else having vibration issues to this degree?

Yup, vibrations are way to soft or don't happen at all. The pebble was great with this never missed a notification. Hoping they put out some software update.
