  1. Serene Innovations VA3 Vibrating Travel Alarm Clock Review by Melissa
    Overall Satisfaction

    I cannot hear anything when I take off my cochlear implant and hearing aid so I rely on the vibration mode only. I needed to replace my Shake Awake which has served me well for many years but the vibration was not working properly anymore and I was sleeping through my alarm. This one seemed to fit my needs and It's been working really well for me so far. I like all the features: large clock display with back light, strong vibration, timer, temp display, flashlight... The only con is that the snooze will only repeat 7 times. My old one would snooze forever. Hopefully I won't sleep through my alarm anymore so that won't be an issue. So far I'm waking up the first time and maybe snooze once or twice if I'm being lazy. I don't like change especially when it comes to things like this but I'm very satisfied with this product! **Side Note: I know some reviewers have had issues with the alarm and snooze settings. They are not as simple as the Shake Awake so it took some getting used to. The instructions can be a little confusing but just read and follow the instructions and test it out until you are used to it. When the alarm goes off then you can hit any button and it will go off again 8 min later. If you press the snooze button for 3 sec or more then the alarm will shut off and automatically reset to go off at the same time the next morning. If you want to turn it off then use the switch on the side. When I turn it back on I go all the way through the alarm mode including the snooze indicator just to make sure it's on and ready to go. Hope that helps. (Posted on 4/9/2018)

  2. Alarm Clock Review by Mary
    Overall Satisfaction

    I used to have a small alarm clock and was with me perhaps for 20 years. It is about to die so it was time for me to get a new one. My Deaf friend recommended this alarm clock. I am totally satisfied with it. (Posted on 3/8/2018)

  4. Mixed review Review by David
    Overall Satisfaction

    It's my incompetence but I just cannot get the alarm to go off in the morning. I've got the batteries in, the clock working, and have set the alarm for 0700. Come that hour in the morning, nothing happens. (Posted on 8/6/2017)

  5. Reasonably good Review by Yukita
    Overall Satisfaction

    As a hearing impaired person, this is supposed to be my main alarm clock (home and travel).

    It has a strong vibration - good.
    The snooze function/the alarm can be easily stopped when you want - good.

    The snooze function has a couple of problems:

    1. No way to make sure it is on. The icons on the screen do not ensure this upon setting the alarm clock. The snooze may be on or off - what you see on the screen looks exactly the same. The alarm can be set "on" but the snooze may not work.

    2. The snooze takes too long to kick in. About 20 minutes - which means that if you drift back into sleep, you'll be very late! A useful snooze should kick in within a few minutes.

    Also, there is no "low" indication for batteries... so one day, the alarm clock won't vibrate because the batteries are finished. No way to know that in advance.

    Overall, a good product - except for the problems with the snooze function.

  6. Worked well Review by Gene
    Overall Satisfaction

    I ordered this as I am a sound sleeper with a hearing loss and travel a lot. Overall, it did a good job with the strong vibration to wake me up. I liked the battery aspect as well, as I travel internationally and plug in clocks don't seem to last on foreign electrical currents, even with convertors. I would recommend this to anyone that travels. (Posted on 4/17/2017)

  7. No more excuses Review by StaC
    Overall Satisfaction

    No more excuses not hearing the alarm clock now. Since I lost most my hearing 20 years ago. Its harder & harder to find an alarm that I can hear to actually wake me up. The vibration of this alarm does the trick. Its compact & can travel. Thank you! (Posted on 3/27/2017)

  8. A good alarm clock Review by DavidG
    Overall Satisfaction

    I really like it. It's compact for travel, easy to read, has a built in flashlight, and, on the right surface, the rattling/vibration would probably wake up the dead. I don't have to worry about missing a wake up call now! I would definitely recommend this alarm clock. (Posted on 2/15/2017)

  9. Shake awake Review by LWT
    Overall Satisfaction

    I am deaf (once I remove my implant receiver) and need an alarm clock when I travel that will reliably wake me up. I have tried several vibrating alarms which either did not shake enough or wouldn't stay where I put them (wrist, pocket of my sleep pants, etc. This one has the strongest shaker of all I have tried and the little clasp allows me to effectively lock it into my pocket. I wish it was a bit lighter, it is pretty hefty but I really don't notice it too much so I am happy. (Posted on 2/6/2017)

  11. Love the clock! Review by Happy
    Overall Satisfaction

    I LOVE this alarm clock. I think the clock has been changed because all the buttons on the top act as a snooze button so there is no worry about hitting the wrong button like other reviews mention. I was so happy to see this because I use the snooze heavily and was worried about this--I didn't buy the clock earlier because of this. I like that it starts with a light vibration and then gets stronger. I wake easily to the light vibration but if I'm in a deep sleep, it is good to know it will get stronger and wake me. I love the temperature and flashlight features. I don't need the timer but that is a nice addition and I would use that if I didn't already have a vibrating timer on my watch. (Posted on 11/7/2016)

  12. Perfect Review by Bogey
    Overall Satisfaction

    This clock totally meets my needs. Placed in my pillow it's vibration alarm mode works great.
    I don't agree with the person who wants to look at it for time. It's stuffed in my pillow. My bedroom has a lighted clock as do all hotels. Yes on a recommendation. (Posted on 10/19/2016)

  13. Good Review by Dora
    Overall Satisfaction

    It's a little bigger than I expected, but workable. The light is very bright. I'm still in the "learning" process, but so far it is doing good. (Posted on 8/10/2015)

  14. Snooze function poorly implemented; annoying light Review by Not Pleased
    Overall Satisfaction

    I am hearing impaired and purchased this to use as my primary alarm clock using the vibrating mode. (I was happily using a Shake Awake which finally gave up the ghost).

    There does not appear to be any way to disable the flashing light and use the clock only in vibrating mode. The light is extremely bright and harsh. It is jarring and unpleasant to wake to.

    Along these lines, if you wish to check the time in the middle of the night, you have to turn on the clock's light to read the time - again the light is blindingly bright.

    If the snooze alarm is enabled, there does not seem to be a way to tell for sure if you've shut off the snooze alarm just temporarily or until the next cycle.

    Batteries were very difficult to fit into the battery compartment, and the batteries that shipped with the clock were dead on arrival.

    Documentation is very poor. (Posted on 12/26/2014)

  18. Excellent for my use Review by Wilma
    Overall Satisfaction

    I purchased this clock for my mother who is hearing impaired. On a recent trip to Hungary she needed a battery-operated alarm clock. My mother kept the clock in bed with her and used the vibration function to wake up on time. She also used the flashlight feature. (Posted on 7/16/2014)

    Overall Satisfaction


  20. Good Product Review by Tom
    Overall Satisfaction

    I purchased this alarm clock through Harris Communications approximately 1 year ago and have used it extensively. Overall I am very satisfied with the clock. However, I have found that during travel the control switches and particularly the alarm switch occasionally get moved or turned on by jostling against other items. I highly recommend that a protective case or sleeve be made available as an option. Otherwise I would have rated this a 5. (Posted on 6/17/2014)

  21. exactly what I needed Review by Ian
    Overall Satisfaction

    Perfect to address hotel phones with limited volume and hotel alarm clocks that are unreliable. Nice form factor. Appreciated the ordering process - nice and intuitive web site with specs and insight - well thought out. Would recommend. (Posted on 5/27/2014)

    Overall Satisfaction

    Good clock. Average on ease of use. (Posted on 5/16/2014)

  23. excellent product Review by Hardofhearing
    Overall Satisfaction

    This clock is easy to use, as the directions are clearly written on the clock itself. When the alarm goes off, the clock flashes a light, making it easy to find so that you can shut it off quickly. The vibration results in a loud, low-frequency sound if the clock is on a wooden table or desk. I am deaf, but I can hear this alarm easily. When it rings and vibrates, the clock doesn't jump around too much, which means it stays on the wooden table or desk rather than jumping off to
    the floor and damaging itself.
    The clock is easy to read in the dark, has a convenient flashlight. It is relatively easy to set the time and the
    alarm. the flashlight is an added convenience. The clock is compact and light-weight -- the perfect travel clock. (Posted on 5/8/2014)

  29. Best vibrating travel clock I've seen! Review by Anonymous
    Overall Satisfaction

    I'm severely hard of hearing and have used many different travel clocks throughout the years, including some of the more popular ones (like the SBP100). Of all the different travel clocks I've tried thus far, this one has BY FAR the most powerful vibration. It is surprising to me that a battery operated clock can have such strong vibration! The minute you take it out of the box you can tell it was built to last, whereas some of the ones I've used before have felt a little cheap. I also really like the "timer" functionality, so I can use it as a vibrating timer at home to remind me when it's time to check on food in the oven, etc. I am a VERY, VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER! (Posted on 10/27/2013)

  30. Snooze feature makes NO sense! Review by Baffled
    Overall Satisfaction

    If snooze function is on... If SNOOZE button is pushed during the alarm, the alarm will stop temporarily but it will sound off again in 8 mins. This cycle repeats... To stop the alarm completely anytime, press any button other than snooze on top of the clock. WTF That means I had to CAREFULLY press the right in the middle top button while half awake if I want the snooze to work otherwise during my fumbling half asleep attempt, I accidentally (more often than not) press the wrong button and I end up turning off snooze!!!
