Thank you everyone for the feedback. At the moment it is technically impossible to vibrate with haptic feedback for Pillow. In simple terms only apps that are in the foreground have limited access to habit feedback whereas Pillow works in the background and it is not allowed for third-party apps to bring the app in the foreground at a scheduled time, such as an alarm. We would gladly support this if it becomes possible on a future update of the watchOSAdam Logan commented
This feature was what I expected when I bought this app, and this is something I really need as a deaf person. Sounds are not going to cut it for me. Perhaps if you make the case to Apple about accessibility issues, they might work something out with you.

I wanted to add that I would appreciate more than just lights on lights off options. It'd be nice to have a dawn simulator and dusk simulator complete with color temperature changes, intensity etc as close to the real thing. And then perhaps given the nature of this app on alerting us at the peak vs valley of rem cycles, a shorter duration dawn / dusk simulator (think 3, 5 or 10 minutes).
Since the haptic feedback as alarm is out (me being deaf this is a huge bummer) philips hue support is probably the next best thing.
