      recommend vibration alarm wristwatch for LDs?

      Hi Guys! I've used to be an avid LD-er a while back and am planning on returning to having LD's (used to be at least several per week).
      I've been on a search for vibrating alarm watch or smartwatch - there are many cheap knockoff ones out there now, but this aspect seems to not be documented anywhere, does anyone know of a not too expensive smartwatch that:

      1) has a vibration-only alarm option?
      2) you can adjust the intensity of the vibration?

      I've actually asked many sellers on my country's equivalent of ebay, but no one seems to know or it's non-adjustable. Surely someone here will know something
      thanks in advance!

      Hi there! Even the cheapest models of fitbit watches ought to have the vibration alarm, not sure if you can adjust the intensity though.
      yuriythebest and Xanous like this.
      Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

      thanks! To anyone reading this with the same question, I ended up getting a used <10$ used honor band 4 running edition - it didn't have the adjustable vibration even though the seller said it did, however luckily it turned out to be just above the level to wake me up and isn't "obnoxious" .The brightness is really bad for outdoors and it becomes unreadable in the smallest amount of sunlight, the free loop (the circular thingy where you tuck the remaining loose belt into) literally fell apart into multiple pieces as I was sleeping, but for the purposes of oneironautics it does it's job perfectly and the battery life is good. I think literally any fitness bracelet thing should do, just don't get the noname/knockoff ones, since the price on real ones goes down really quickly after a few years, to being practically e-waste, with the exception of apple/samsung maybe. Also, the wristband on the one I got was small and I think aimed at children/asians/women, so if you are a big dude I'd recommend something else - I'll try searching if there are larger straps for it on aliexpress once shipments/flights resume to my country.

      I bought one off Amazon over a year ago type in vibrating alarm watch, the one I use has 9 slots for alarms, typically I only ever use 3 slots You canít adjust the vibration strength but if you share your bed with a partner itís ideal as it doesnít wake them up.
