Excerpt: Not enough vibration to wake someone and could be missed if the person is absorbed in conversation or a movie, but if you want a gentle quiet alarm, this could be great. The buttons are exceptionally easy to use and might be good for arthritic fingers or someone with limited dexterity.
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: 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: 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: Easy and intuitive to set. The Vibration Alarm is exactly what my degraded hearing needs and I can read the time and date without reading glasses! If it came in an ungraded style (metal case and bracelet) I'd probably buy another.
Summary: Since I can't hear the alarm on most watches with an alarm feature, and I have a hard time seeing anything other than the time without reading glasses, this watch seems perfect. The vibration alarm feature works great and is easy to access and set. The time, day and date are large and clear.
