Feel The Wear - Notifications

Reviews: 1010 | Score: 4 | Price: Free

Now also SOUND including uploading of your own! Volume is linked to the watch's alarm sound volume.

Weak vibrations on your Wear watch? Do you miss notifications? Feel The Wear allows you to set custom vibrations and sound for your apps' notifications, which you will not miss. Works also without a watch, let the phone have the custom vibrations! Phone only operation does not support sounds.

1) Install app

2) Wait a couple minutes for the app to install on your watch

3) Open app on phone

4) Select what apps you want to vibrate on your watch

5) Turn off the vibrate in the individual apps on your phone. That's it.

App needs a permission to read the phone's notifications and will ask for this on the app's first start. The watch can vibrate even a second before the notification arrives into your watch. This is because the watch will vibrate at the time a notification arrives into your phone and it could take some time for a notification to show-up on the watch.

It takes some time for the app to install into your watch, so wait a while. The app will never be visible in the watch, because it has no watch app. Once you can successfully test the vibration patterns from the phone app, the watch will vibrate as expected.

*App does not make physically stronger vibrations. It is not possible to make the vibrating motor stronger via an app, it depends on the watch's hardware and firmware.*


If you experience double vibrations then set no sound and no vibration in the 3rd party app's settings for its notifications. Or you can try the vibration delay option in the Feel The Wear's settings screens and make the vibrations overlap.
