I also find that not having "native" alarms is a huge shortcoming of the gear fit.
In order to get waked up in the morning I must remember to:1. keep the phone at most one room away (and sometime that's already too much), 2. have it charged, 3. disable audio notifications (so I just get the alarm on the fit), 4. enabled bluetooth, (and maybe something else). It is easier if I just buy a different device...

Anyway I don't see any hope that this will ever get improved/solved. No app can be developed/installed for this as all you can develop are apps that still depend on a smartphone. Firmware sources are not available to be twicked and pimped. I can just suggest we all give just 0 or 1 star to this device in all reviews mentioning that the reason is lack of native alarm support.

Lately it does not work for me. Only starts vibrating after I press a button. It could have something to do with the update because I noticed that screen no longer reacts to wake-up gesture when Do Not Disturb is on (which is a good thing).

Edit: Tried it today without Do Not Disturb on and it worked just fine
