Or similar ....Have not used but read review in FastCompany. It's a computerized sort of bracelet thingy that you can set to wake you up, which it does by vibrating. Since it's on your wrist, it seems unlikely to also wake up MrsAustin316.
As an aside, it also somehow knows the optimal time to wake you up based on REM or deep sleep or something. So, for example, if you set it for 6:30 am, it will vibrate some time between 6:00 and 6:30, but do so such that it gets you up when you're in your lightest sleep so you'll feel more energized when you wake up.
Also, this is second release of the product. V1.0 had lots of issues which article says they resolved.
It's not that difficult. I don't use an alarm to wake up unless I need to get up much earlier than normal for some reason.
which you hate but she loves. The result? You get up quickly and, if she can't get back to sleep, at least she's got some good music to listen to for an hour.
Both of you start your days with a smile. Morning wood is a wonderful thing.
Besides the switch on your smart phone, there are vibrating alarm clocks. I am hearing impaired. I take my hearing aids out when I sleep. So, alarm clocks have always been an issue. There are various types. I'm sure one would be able to wake you up without causing to much disturbance for her. Email if you have specific questions and I'd be happy to answer.
Sure, it sounds like something straight out of Del Boca Vista rest home, but it friggin straight up works. Its like a sensory deprivation tank.
Dr. Teeth and I chose alarms on our phones that are as different as we could find from each other. His is actually awful and piercing because he'll sleep through anything else. After about 3 months, I was able to sleep through it without even hearing it. I hear it about once a week now and just roll over and go back to sleep.
Snoozing, however, is absolutely forbidden except in extreme circumstances in our house. I used to hit snooze every day, but finally figured out that it was incredibly rude.
That it might even come into play during your dreams is just a bonus.
It could be worse. My wife likes to hit snooze 4 times every day, no matter how much I bitch about it.
goes out a jack (radio alarm, for instance) you could use pillow or soft-speaker to get more volume to your ear.
and make enough coffee for two.

yeah, its not for me either. i ended up adjusting by getting up an hour earlier or whenever the other alarm goes off. its a bit amazing what you can do with that time.
I promise, your wife will hear nothing.
I've never used one, but I think there are many models out there.
