Wrong instructions but vibration works.

Summary: I received the wrong instructions for my watch. If you go to the "Support" option and then go to "Vibration Alarm" product, you will get the correct instructions. However, even the correct instructions are confusing.
Summary: Here's how u turn on vibration & turn off hydra & occasion (stolen from internet): 1. Go to the main screen of the watch. (the one with the time...) 2. Press and hold "set" until it stops telling you to "HOLD-TO SET" it. 3. Press "mode" several times until you reach "ALRT" 4.
Summary: Didn't even bother reading the instructions. Very intuitive. Rather than making a sound when the alarm goes off, it vibrates. Works fine. However, I wish the vibration were stronger. I cannot count on this watch waking me up. but I guess that's why God made cell phones :).
Summary: Setting Vibration 1. Hold set/done button to enter settings 2. Press mode button until word ALRT is on screen with the word tone flashing above it. 3. Press the start/split button until the flashing word says vibe 4. Press the the set/done button and you are done
Summary: Everyone complains the instructions for this sucks and they are right. But the watch really does what you want. You can make all alarms ring, vibrate, or both. The setting is under the main settings menu (the one you use to set the time on the watch and to hide the screens you don't want to use).
Summary: First of all, I must say I love Timex watches. They were my first watch when I was 5 and I've never had a different brand. This one, however, was a huge disappointment. 1. It stopped working after only three weeks. The display simply went blank so I have to send it back today to have it repaired. 2.
Summary: Bought this watch for its large, easy to read digits and the vibration alarm. It did not disappoint. Loads of other features are also a welcome addition: 3 (not just 2!) time zones and an occasion/event alarm. Features you won't find at this price point in other brands.
Summary: Finally, an accurate watch that does not disturb others when the alarm goes off. Also, I no longer miss the alarm in loud environments. It has just enough timers for me. I use the hydration as a 2nd count down timer. 3 daily alarms are enough for me. I have no need for the occasion feature.
Summary: I bought the Timex T498549J. The included instructions were for the Timex W-214. They do not give any clues as to how to set the vibration/audible alarm feature. I have not been able to find the appropriate manual online. HELP!Wrong instructions are a poor example of quality
