There isnt a need for a stand alone alarm, atm its not possible. The Gear Fit isnt designed to have apps loaded on it, just on the phone & used via bluetooth.

I think an Ideal solution to this would be an Alarm App that can be downloaded as usual to the phone, and accessed on the Gear Fit.
For the Alarm to be 100% silent on the Phone (with no vibration either) but to vibrate on the Gear Fit - the settings for the alarm could be edited either on the phone or via the 'App Connect' feature on the Gear Fit....

I think this would give the solution people are wanting???

You can do this with the built in Alarm (via the Clock app) on your phone. Just make sure Alarm is checked under Instant Alerts in the Gear Fit Manager. You can even dismiss or snooze directly from the Gear Fit.

But sometimes my phone battery dies during the night or sometimes I want to set a quick day time alarm when I don't have my phone around. The timer I think only goes up to 99 minutes.
Maybe this is only strange to me but not having a built in alarm on the phone seems an oversight. I had the same issue with the Gear 1 and tried a few aftermarket apps such as Zen alarm but found on the phone they often didn't have the alert until hours after it was meant to.

I know these watches are companion devices to a phone but they do include some apps that make sense to have on the phone such as timer, pedometer etc. Always wonder why not an alarm as well.

If connected via Bluetooth and Alarm is set on the phone the gear fit will vibrate too easy peasy
