Haptic touch is an amazing feature on Apple Watch; with this gentle touch, your smartwatch gives you notification or alerts you about notifications you have received on the watch. The alerts or haptic feedback can be felt on your wrist like tender taps; and note that these give you a completely different feeling than conventional vibrations.
You can adjust haptic intensity on Apple Watch just like you can adjust the 3D Touch intensity on your iPhone 6/6s Plus and iPhone 7/7 Plus. You can change this haptic pressure from your Apple Watch as well as from the iPhone connected with your smartwatch.
How to Adjust or Change Haptic Intensity on Apple Watch
Step #1: Launch Settings on your watch.
Step #2: Tap on Sounds & Haptics.
Step #3: Next, you need to scroll down to adjust the Ringer and Alert Haptics slider.
Similarly, you can change the haptic intensity on Apple Watch from the paired iPhone.
How to Change Haptic Intensity on Apple Watch from iPhone
Step #1: First off, tap on the Apple Watch app on iPhone.
Step #2: Open the My Watch tab.
Step #3: Now you need to tap on Sound & Haptics.
Step #4: Finally, fine-tune the Haptic Strength slider to your convenience or your choice of level.
What is Prominent Haptic?
Apart from the basic haptic settings, your Apple Watch offers a Prominent Haptic, which will be displayed in the Settings of both – Apple Watch and Watch app on the paired iPhone.
Under the Prominent Haptic, you will find an explanation that reads: When this is on, Apple Watch will play a prominent haptic to pre-announce some common alerts.
Do you think that a pre-announcement is required for a notification? It is like an announcement of an announcement as any notification acts as an announcement of something. This can be a useless feature for any Apple Watch user; but if you want to experience this, go ahead and toggle it ON.
