    I have this exact thing with my new withings steel HR. The alarm is really weak and short. I don't wake up from this.

    And only 3 alarms? Really? Every day I have to wake up at a different time so I would like set 7 different alarms in one weak time.

    Now the watch is useless for me as a wake-up alarm. My Xiaomi mi band was a lot better for waking up.

    Please add these features. Stronger or ajustable strenth of the vibration and more then 3 alarms to set.

    Yeah the smart sleep alarm should be the main reason for many to have bought the watch, I mean, I don't think activity tracking when doing sport can be of any usefulness
    Also they should add REM sleep tracking

    I think that is a great idea if they can strengthen the alarm of the Move watch and if they can make the vibration longer. That is very helpful especially if you are in a deep sleep. Nice catch!

    Strange, my problem is that the vibration is too strong, it wakes up my wife too. lol. So what I would like to have, to choose from a few pattern, strength, I would set it to much softer vibration. 

    Would it be possible?

    I asked to Withings Support and it's not possible to modulate the vibration strenght.

    @luc.pendic: thanks for the info.

    I mean probably to be able to change the length of it would be enough eg. when I push the button to measure an ECG that vibration is more gentle, not that long, I'd say repeating that in every 2sec would be perfect.

    I contacted Support via email as well, let's hope the best.

    This question is not answered. Can we have more lengthy alarms?

    I would also be much happier with the watch if the vibration would be strong enough to wake me up

    Yes but really, at least increase the length should be easy. I don't get why they don't do it

    More vibrations should be enough to wake up someone

    Agreed here, needs to be longer or adjustable. Would be good to set how long it buzzes for.

    I think there should be an option to set an additional alarm sound on the mobile.
