Default Pebble Steel vibration strenght

Hello, I'm using an original Pebble right now.
I was going to buy the Pebble Steel, but I've read somewhere that the vibration is really weak so that it's hard to feel it. I've read that things are worse with the steel belt, while you can feel it with the leather one, but it's still weaker than the original Pebble.

Can anyone confirm that? Do you have this problem? Which belt are you using?

I have the Pebble Steel, and using the steel band with it. Yes, I do notice the vibration is weaker than the original Pebble I used to have. It's not THAT weak that you won't notice it, but it is weaker than previous. Hope this helps.

I don't think the strength is weaker, but you don't wear a steel band tight like you would a leather or silicone one so you don't notice the vibration as much

I have a steel band also on my Pebble. Vibration seems to be weaker and noisy, but I can always feel it.
If it's like this, that's not an issue for me

I own a Pebble steel and yes, the vibration is weak and although it does not matter most of the time, i can be a drag when used in active sports. I can't feel my timer when training at the gym or when using Endomondo during my running. Mind you, i have the steel belt and from what i understand, going to a silicone band will improve. I have ordered one and will comment back on my results.
