Activation of the display by double taping is so terrible it makes me want to return the watch.
Otherwise the touch response is good, when the display is activated.
I hope Garmin issues some FW update for this...
I just got a Garmin Venu that I could not wake up with a double tap, until I came to this thread. One has to tap way harder than you would want to tap on a watch. You have to do it like you're really mad at the watch, lol. It has to be like with the really tip of the finger and it's awkward because my nail hits the glass.
For the last couple of months, it has improved significantly. Good job, Garmin! However, I noticed the problem persists on vivomove Style when turning on the activity. I have to hit it hard several times before it stops the exercise (requires double tap). In all the other places, it's alright.
