Coming from the Pebble, the vibration on the Gear Live is pretty weak.

Is there a way or setting to increase it?

I don;t think there is one (yet) and I agreed, the vibration notification is really brief and really subtle

I agree, i'm really excited about Android Wear, but am very disappointed in how weak the vibration notification are. I've read other similar complaints about the "gear 2". I compared it to a friends gear fit vibration, and the live is much weaker. The gear fit's vibration is audible, which is maybe why samsung chose to make it weaker, since the "gear live" vibration is pretty silent. I can feel it when i'm wearing the watch tight enough to cut off my circulation, but it's uncomfortable that way! When i wear it a notch or two looser, i just miss notifications. I setup a recurring text cron to myself to test it, and i'm missed most of them when i'm not paying attention to the watch explicitly. I'd love a setting to increase the vibration, or to allow a multiple vibrations for notifications or something, but as is, unless that happens in the next few days, i'm prepared to return the watch and wait for a new model with good good vibrations.

Its app Dependant. For example, evolvesms, the vibration is much stronger.

Thanks. Zach. Hopefully some custom roms can fix it across all apps. Mostly I need hangouts and timers to be more noticeable.

I don't think Samsung are doing anything rom wise. All google. Surely in future updates they'll have it vibrate stronger. Then again, I've not tried any apps that are able to vibrate it to see if it does actually go stronger

Any news on how to increase vibration? An app or a ROM perhaps? I know the G Watch has a ROM that can customize vibration.
