    I just bought a shake-n-wake through Amazon, and also was troubled by the hourly chime, the “major design flaw” mentioned in another review.

    I discovered that pressing the “Time Set” and “Mode” button simultaneously toggles the hourly chime on and off. When the date display indicates “SU MO TU WE TH FR SA” after pressing these buttons simultaneously, the hourly chime is on. The date display will go blank after toggling the hourly chime off.

    You surely will want to turn the hourly chime off. Your local church may get away with ringing its bells every hour, but your shake-n-wake must not. It is disappointing that the instructions do not mention this feature, and that customer support was not able to help the person who wrote the earlier review.

    I’m an Amazon Prime Member and purchase a lot of things. This by far has been my best purchase; because it changes how your entire day goes from the moment you wake up.

    I have had this alarm clock for about 2 months now. My Wife and I just had a baby recently and she sleeps beside our bed for the time being; the baby, not the wife. Before I got this Vibrating Alarm Clock I used my usual phone alarm clock to wake me up. I’m hard to wake up too. The phone would go off and wife would wake up, dogs would wake up, baby would obviously wake up and in a panic, I’m trying to shut off my phone in a dizzy haze. Sometimes hitting the snooze and repeating if it didn’t happen to wake everyone up the first time, or the phone would just lock up and not go off and I would be late to work. Talk about rough mornings.

    Now with the Shake-n-Wake Alarm Clock I wear it on my wrist at night. I wake up very early in the morning to run before I go to work. It vibrates and wakes me up without fail every single time without startling me. I’m not in a panic to shut it off in fear of waking everyone up. I get in my run before work and the rest of the day is splendid, not to mention the wife, and baby get to sleep a few more hours.

    A few people have mentioned the hourly alarm annoyance flaw. Not a flaw, just an option. Maybe the flaw was it was left out of some of the instructions. I shut it off day one and it never comes back. Just pressing the “Time Set” and “Mode” button simultaneously toggles the hourly chime on and off. When the date display indicates “SU MO TU WE TH FR SA” after pressing these buttons simultaneously, the hourly chime is on. The date display will go blank after toggling the hourly chime off. Very easy, not worth even close to trashing this product over that.

    I’ve also heard people complain about the arm strap. I’ve not had any problems with mine and wearing it 5 days a week for 2 months now and does not look to be wearing out. I imagine if it does ever break I will quickly be at the fabric store fix it or make a new one. I love this thing and after my baby moves to her nursery, I’m sure I’ll still be wearing it. Even if I’m alone in bed, I’ll probably still use it, because even as hard as it is to wake me up with a loud alarm clock, the Shake-n-Wake wakes me up nice and easy.

    I recommend this product!

    My kid wears hearing aids, due to severe hearing loss, so she finds it hard to wake up to an alarm. I found this item on Amazon.com and have had a lot of success with it. Once we set the time and alarm time, there is a switch on or off, that my daughter uses to activate it. She puts it on her arm, and is vibrates continually until she turns it off. She has noticed that it also vibrates every hour, a few quick vibrations, then off on it’s own ~ not sure how to turn that feature off, but other than that we love it. She has her independence without waking up the rest of the house to loud obnoxious alarms or one of us having to get up to wake her up.
