Why Does My Apple Watch Vibrate Twice?

Share This:

Are you noticing that your Apple Watch is vibrating twice? Don't worry, you're not alone! There are several reasons why your Apple Watch might be vibrating twice, and luckily, there are some simple solutions to fix the issue.

The first reason why your Apple Watch is vibrating twice is because of the “Do Not Disturb” setting. By default, the Do Not Disturb feature on your Apple Watch will cause it to vibrate twice when you have notifications or alerts coming in. To turn off this feature, simply open the Settings app on your watch, scroll down to “Do Not Disturb” and toggle it off.

Another common reason for double vibrations on an Apple Watch is due to a setting called “Haptic Strength”. This setting controls the intensity of the vibration on your watch and can be adjusted under Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Haptic Strength. If it's set too high, then it can cause double vibrations when receiving notifications or alerts.

Finally, if you have enabled “Chimes” in Accessibility settings (Settings > Accessibility > Chimes), then this could also cause double vibrations every 15, 30, or 60 minutes depending on how often you have set it up. To turn off Chimes, simply go back into Accessibility settings and disable this feature.

If none of these solutions work for you, then we recommend getting in touch with Apple Support for further assistance with resolving this issue. We hope this article helped you understand why your Apple Watch was vibrating twice and how to fix it!

Investigating Unsolicited Vibrations on Apple Watch

It's possible that your Apple Watch is randomly vibrating twice with no notification due to a issue. Restarting both the Apple Watch and the iPhone it's paired with can help resolve this issue, as this will reset the connection between them and clear any temporary software glitches. If restarting doesn't fix the problem, you may need to update your iPhone or your Apple Watch to the latest version of their respective operating systems.

Investigating Unexpected Vibrations from an Apple Watch

It is possible that your Apple Watch is set to chime and vibrate every 15, 30, or 60 minutes. Check-in Settings > Accessibility > Chimes to see if this setting has been enabled. If so, disabling the chimes and vibrations may help solve your issue.

Understanding Haptic Alerts on Apple Watches

A haptic alert is an alert system on the Apple Watch that uses tactile sensations to notify the user of incoming notifications, reminders, and other alerts. It works by sending a series of taps or pulses on your wrist that vibrate and can be felt through the skin. This vibration can be paired with sound alerts to make sure a user notices their incoming notifications. Haptic alerts are designed to provide a discreet way of receiving notifications while avoiding being disruptive to others.

Troubleshooting Apple Watch Vibrations

There could be a few different reasons why your Apple Watch is vibrating and won't stop. It could be that a notification or alert has gotten stuck and is causing the watch to keep vibrating. It could also be that some of the settings on your watch are misconfigured, or there may be a software issue. To try and fix this, we'd first recommend force restarting the watch by pressing and holding the Digital Crown and the side button on the side of the watch until the Apple logo appears on the screen. If that doesn't work, then you may need to adjust your settings or perform a software update.


In conclusion, the Apple Watch is an incredibly powerful tool for staying connected, healthy, and productive. It can help you stay in touch with friends and family, track your goals, and manage your daily tasks. With its intuitive interface and wide range of features, it's no wonder that the Apple Watch has become one of the most popular wearables on the market. Its ability to vibrate or beep randomly can be a helpful reminder, but if this becomes too frequent or disruptive it can be disabled easily from the settings app. Overall, the Apple Watch is a great all-in-one device for staying connected and organized.
