Forget nails on a chalkboard or the squeaking of silverware, the sound of an alarm clock is the most awful noise the human ear can endure.  Even setting your cell to Beethoven’s 5th will eventually render the song worse than a dentist’s drill.  While it may be unavoidable for waking you from your sleep during the day an alarm shouldn’t pierce your ears like some ABBA B-side.  Spare yourself, and your coworkers or any others in your vicinity, the pain with this watch available from Retail Facility.  Simply set the time at which you need a little heads up, and Analarm will alert you by vibrating your wrist.  Perfect for knowing discreetly when it’s time to slip out of a board meeting.
