Silent phone, vibrating watch alarm option.
Use a vibrate alarm on the watch instead of an audio alert on the phone so you only wake up one person and not the whole room.
We’re excited to let you know that the latest major update of Pillow gives you the option to setup alarms using the haptic feedback (vibrations) on the Apple Watch.
To achieve this, we had to use a special background mode that does consume more battery during the night. If you wish to keep battery consumption to a bare minimum, you can you always turn off that feature from the Settings dialog in Pillow on the Apple Watch:
Open Pillow on the Apple Watch > Scroll down and tap on “Settings” > De-select: “Apple Watch Haptics”.
Our warmest wishes for a healthy and successful new year with Pillow!

I also want the silent alarm that uses the watch. I keep my phone in another room at night to avoid phone calls etc.
Ideally it would be a smart wake up based on the most wakeful state x minutes prior to the alarm.
Yeeeeeees please! I am deaf and a phone alarm clock won't wake me up. I hoped that this app would do this but at the moment, it's not very useful if it only tracks.
Because this is missing I use the built in alarm of my watch thus I sacrifice the smart wake feature
That would be a great way to wake up without waking up the wife/hubby...
This is killer
Neat app, but the killer missing feature here is smart wake via Apple Watch vibration - should be "smart", i.e. It should off during the most wakeful state 15 min prior to alarm time.
Yes please. This seems like a simple function to add.
