Set or Delete an Alarm on the Galaxy Gear S2

Edited by Train Wreck, Eng, PichPT

One of the great things about the Samsung Galaxy Gear S2 is the ability to set alarms. While these alarms do not have sound, they do vibrate. In fact you can set several different types of vibration for the alarms. Having thoroughly tested these alarms, it's also worth noting that the slight vibration on your wrist is a very effective way of quietly waking up. If you have small children or a spouse you don't want to wake up, the Gear S2 watch alarm is probably the best possible method you could use to wake yourself up in the morning. Read on for our instructions on how to set an alarm on your Galaxy Gear S2.
