Vibrating Watches and alarm watches are becoming very popular these days and are packed with features that were not available when they first came out.
I think one of the first popular brands was Casio and I remember well spending a lot of time reading the instructions and setting my first watch up.
All though they were a new innovation at the time and they had a lot of toy value they were not that reliable as I recall. They had many features but understanding how to set them up I found to be quite a trial.
I was surprised at how much noise one of those small wrist alarm watches could produce. So they have no problem at all in waking you up. You can of course turn the sound down. Do you remember the old fashioned mechanical alarm clocks that used to wake you up with quite a start? Well alarm watches that are set up correctly can do just as good a job without the jump factor.
They are not only useful for waking you up in the morning they have also many features that can be used throughout the day.
They can be used as popular reminder watches if say you have an important meeting to attend. Or you may have an appointment to keep. They can be used as Pill Alarm Timers so youll never forget to take your medication again. Some of these alarm watches have up to 200 alarms available per day to help you manage your very active and busy lifestyle.
There are even alarm watches that claim to waken you up at the most effective and alert time. How does that work you say? Well it works like this. You set the watch to waken you up not at a specific time rather a small window of time; instead of 6.45am on the dot you choose a setting between 6.30am and 7.00am.
The watch has tracked your sleep cycles all night through the different sleep states. So the watch chooses to waken you up at your most alert state some time between your chosen time points. The makers claim you will be woken at your most refreshed and energetic time. What a marvelous idea!
Alarm watches have certainly moved on over the last few years and there is a terrific range of products to choose from. The internet is the place to shop in my opinion but go for a branded company and then you are much less likely to get duped. And remember that alarm watches are also good looking these days so you can also view your watch as a fashion accessory.
