Feel The Wear
Wear 2.0 users: You have to manually install the watch part of the app - this is a new Android Wear feature.
Weak vibrations on your Wear watch? Do you miss notifications? Feel The Wear allows you to set custom vibrations and sounds for your apps' notifications. Works also without a watch, let the phone have the custom vibrations! Phone only operation does not support sounds.
Now also SOUND including uploading of your own (premium feature)! Volume is linked to the watch's alarm sound volume or you can set your own.
Always contact me with any issues via email please.
App is not fully optimized for incoming phone calls because of Android Wear limitations.
Watch vibrating a 1-2 seconds before the notification shows-up on the watch is normal, my app is fast :)

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. More info here https://plus.google.com/110234199301708624596/posts/6WatCMWynD3
