    Quartz watch with alarm function that can actually wake you up

    Dear all,
    can anybody advice on a quartz watch with an alarm that can actually wake you up? Something below 500€ if possibile.

    Ideally the omega Skywalker x-33 would the be ideal watch (I heard that the alarm is quite loud) but I need a watch that I don't care if it gets damaged so a 4k € watch is out of the game.

    Thanks

    The F91W of all tiny things has the loudest alarm of any I’ve experienced. However, I much prefer a vibration alarm. Not sure if that’s on the table, but I use my Garmin Fenix to wake up. But a cheap Casio vibe alarm watch works just as well. I think most smart watches, even Fitbits, have a similar feature.

    Vibration alarm is on the table but smart watches are not.

    I’ve found Timex digital watches to be loud enough to wake me. My experience is only with the Ironman and Expedition models recently.

    How old are you? The reason I ask (as an old person) I find that the upper registers start to go (regardless of hearing damage, whatever, it's just a fact of aging). So, a loud watch in a higher frequency (which is where a lot of watch alarms are) may not do you as much good if you're a gentleman of distinction (meaning "old"). :)

    There's a market out there for cheap watches for seniors with alarms/notifications in a lower frequency tone. My MIL comes over and I have to tell her all the time when her watch is alarming. She literally can't hear it, even though she "hears" just fine for anything in the normal range.
