Vibrating Alarm Clock

How-To: Never Be Woken Up by Your Partner's Alarm Clock Again

We can never have enough inventions to increase our quality of sleep and it seems like we have a winner with the new Lark alarm clock ($129) which is available on its website and since it connects wirelessly to your iPhone, it will be coming to Apple stores on June 14.

Developed by a Harvard sleep expert and a sleep coach for pro-athletes, the Lark gadget is a wristband you strap on that vibrates to wake you up, thus only waking up one person. Don't worry, you're not going to feel a strong electric jolt, the vibration is quite light and is described by the Wall Street Journal to feel "gentle and soothing."

Further, the product even tracks your sleep patterns with a sensor and records it onto an app available in iTunes. And if you're worried about how effective this product will be after a long length of time, the creators have solved this problem — apparently the vibrations also change daily so people won't start getting used to it and ignoring it.

The WSJ review also said that although wearing a wristband takes some getting used to, it starts to feel less noticeable after a couple of wears. So what do you think — is this something you would buy?

While wearing an armband seems awkward, this also seems like an incredibly practical purchase. There's nothing worse than waking up at 4:30 when you don't need to.

I'd be interested in checking this out in a store to see how it works. Wonder when it will be out for Android.

The alarm clock never seems to do it, it's always my husband stumbling around finding clothes and attempting to walk around the bed w/o waking me up...that wakes me up! lol

lol I guess that's way more effective! However, I must point out that the alarm clock is cheaper. :)

Sorry, but the post title made me laugh b/c the only sure-fire way I found to not be woken up by my partner's alarm was to get a divorce! ;)
