When you travel, it's
extremely important to have some type of alarm
with you. You may rely solely on your
phone, but you should also consider wearing a
watch as a backup. Most Smartphones will
have an alarm app or one you can download for
free. It's important that your watch also
have an alarm.
In today's world of
Smartphones, some people tend to no longer wear
a watch but having one makes it very convenient
to quickly check the time. Having a
watch provides a backup alarm should something
happen to your Smartphone.

There are several important things to remember
Don't rely on the hotel's wakeup call or the
in-room alarm clock (if there is one). Any
number of things can happen from the hotel not
calling you, to you incorrectly setting an
unfamiliar alarm clock.
Don't depending on the in-room alarm clock to
wake you up.
Make sure you have adjusted your watch and phone
to your current time zone.
Make sure you can easily set the alarms on your
watch and phone.
Prior to travel, set and test your alarms by
using them to wake yourself up in the morning so
that you become used to the sound and will not
sleep through them.
You will find countless
watches available having alarms and other
features. Watches can be found virtually
anywhere including the internet and local
stores. They don't have to be expensive
but purchase something that looks nice, is
dependable and will last.
We have focused on two
specific watches here, one for men and one for
women. These are the actual watches we own
and have traveled with on our trips so can
highly recommend them.
