Yes, the Touch surface on the Siri Remote can be customized for faster or slower swipe speeds. Tracking speed will affect how quickly the Apple TV reads touch input on the glass panel of the Siri Remote.
To change the sensitivity of the Touch surface follow these steps:
1. Navigate to Settings -> Remotes and Devices -> Touch Surface Tracking
2. Select Fast or Slow to change Touch surface sensitivity
Fast will mean less movement on the Touch surface is needed to swipe on the Apple TV screen. The fast sensitivity setting requires more accuracy when using the Siri Remote. Slow is often better for novices as it will increase the amount of movement needed on the Siri Remote to interact with tvOS.
