After switching from Pebble to Android Wear, I have noticed I kept missing notifications. I did not feel the vibration, but when checking the watch later, missed notifications were there.

It turns out that not only is the vibration motor on my SW3 significantly weaker than on my Pebble, most apps also only vibrate for like one millisecond, making them easy to miss.

While there are already apps that try to mitigate this issue, none of them really satisfied my requirements, so I have decided to make my own.

So what does this app do?

Simply put, after Android Wear finishes its puny barely-noticeable vibration, Vibration Center will kick in and do a good shake to your wrist, making sure you absolutely notice this notification. However:
  • It will do so intelligently (no useless vibrations for notifications that do not actually appear on the watch)
  • Vibration pattern is customizable and can be set differently for each app
  • If you are still afraid of missing notifications, you can enable alarm mode that vibrates restlessly until you dismiss it manually. It even comes with the snooze button.
  • It comes with plenty of spam filter options, making sure that your wrist is not shaken too much
  • It comes with on-watch mute feature that can either mute all vibrations for some time (for example when in a meeting or in a theater) or it can mute specific app until you deal with it later (for example if you are in group chat and they are having spammy conversation that would otherwise buzz your wrist every half a second)
  • There is full tasker integration
  • It is completely free and open source

matejdro, is there another way to donate or help with your project? I've used a pebble before and I'm glad you provided this app. I can now at least recognize my notifications on the watch. Before, I mostly missed them.

If there's nothing I can do to help, I at least wanted to thank you.

Hello,

Thank you for your app. I can have custom pattern vibrations for all my apps except Outlook.
Outlook just sticks to its default watch pattern.

Any idea?

Thanks

Default pattern will always be there (unless you put the watch into do not disturb). Vibration Center will vibrate in addition to default pattern.

Matejdro, is there any way for your app to vibrate when the Bluetooth connection to the phone cuts, like out of range?

Nope, but there are a lot of other apps that do this job well.

Not working on my new doogee s90 pro. First time on android 9.
when launching the app it says the service is not running. When I go to settings > vibration center does have notification access.
