|vibrating alarm clock

I need a good old fashioned vibrating alarm clock, if something like that exists.|
I am quite hearing impaired and am looking specifically for something that vibrates rather than makes a loud noises. I am having trouble finding something cost-affective...I do find it interesting how expensive vibrating alarm clocks are considering they are geared for the disabled, but c'est la vie. Another perk of having bad hearing.
I received an alarm clock several years ago through a program for disabled adults but it was a piece of shit and stopped displaying the time after 6 months. It also costs about ~35 dollars brand new.
Does anyone have suggestions?
Here's one for the arm
, amazon has it for $14.
I don't know if about $30 is what you wanted to avoid, but here's a alarm clock
for $29 and another one
for $30. Amazon has some more under "vibrating alarm", but those where the first few that showed up.
This probably sounds stupid, and not what your looking for, but I always use my phone - I put it on vibrate and and it just vibrates off when its time to get up.
My phone never works...it will be vibrating/blaring in my face and won't wake me up.
...Unless you're looking for one for the bed or to vibrate your body. You could always put the phone under your pillow? Haa
That doesn't work either. I've tried before.
Hmm, does bright light bother you enough to wake you maybe? Then you could at least find a strobe light and put on a timer, heh.
Yep. I sleep through alarms but for some reason, hearing it vibrate gets me up. (At least to hit disable on the bastard.)
I have one by Sonic Alert that is really good.
I'll do ya one better: An alarm vibrator
I know it's not at all affordable, but the moment I saw this post it popped into my head and couldn't resist ;)
this was my first thought too
i wonder....ha. maybe i should see if my boyfriend would buy this for a birthday present. i wonder if it helps with nightmares =P
Only one way to find out! If he gets it for you, you should totally let us know how it goes in tqc_updates! I was curious about it myself.
Also as an alternative to vibrating alarm clocks there are light alarm clocks. I just did a quick Google search and came up with some interesting stuff, though they don't seem any cheaper.
i sent it to him! we will see....
and thank you! i'm not having much luck myself.

I had the iLuv alarm clock with the vibrating attachment that you stick under your pillow and I think they retailed for about $100 over here so not cheap but worked really well. It used to scare the crap out of me so I went back to using my phone. Now my partner has it and it's the only thing that has ever woken him up every single time. He's a baker so I used to have to wake him up pretty much every single night before I went to bed but not anymore
A dated a guy in the Navy years ago and he got a watch that vibrates when the alarm went off so that he wouldn't wake up other people on the ship. That might work?
I will definitely look for something like this...I always wear a watch so this is a great idea.
I just put my phone alarm on and turn the sound off. It vibrates. I put it under my pillow. It works well.
Can you put a cell phone on vibrate? My cell phone alarm is both noisy, and it vibrates. It's in my bed with me when I sleep so it wakes me up no matter what it does.
