My wife is sick of hearing my alarm clock blaring every morning, waking her up 2 hours before she needs to rise.
Why not develop an alarm clock into which you program two or more separate wake times? Each wake time corresponds to a different color-coded device that can be worn on the body such as
a wrist/ankle/finger band that vibrates (similar to the silent mode on a cell phone). This way, you will be awoken without interrupting the sleep of your partner.
Vibrating Alarm Watches
(The first of many such on Google.) [DrCurry, Apr 18 2007]

||Alarm watches are Widely Baked. No need to link them together somehow.
||Baked: it's called a cat. Cats are born with the idea that a human's on/off switch is that roundish thing that protrudes from the middle of the face. One pushes it to switch one's human on.
||Hmm. Not sure that alarm watches quite fit the bill, [DrCurry]. I'm woken by my son's alarm watch, in vibrate mode, from two room's away. He sleeps through it, no bother.
||That's despite the fact that I'm half deaf. But its vibrate mode sounds like a cow in labour to me.
||I've considered swapping it secrectly for a version that delivers an EHT shock instead. I probably wouldn't hear that, although I might hear him landing on the floor after leaping high in the air.
