Not knowing details of the force sensors that constitute the 'taptic feedback engine', I would have to say such time-dependent drifts in performance was most likely modeled in a FMEA exercise at the design stage of Apple Watch. It seems to me that that the manufacturing process side of the taptic engine perhaps did not go thru a rigorous PFMEA that could have caught this at AAC Technologies?
