andy: "set reminder for sunday 8am"
google: "what's the reminder for?"
google "ok, do you want to save this?"
you only get a single, fairly quiet "beep" when it pops up on screen
Only the dinosaurs do. I don't even use any clocks anymore,
much more convenient to ask siri the time, don't have to put
my glasses on or even turn over to face the clock anymore.
I can also ask it other stuff like the temperature, to turn off
do not disturb that I always turn on when sleeping and to
turn the lights on too.
My phone alarm app has:
1) Unlimited alarms with day patterns;
2) Ascending volume over some minutes;
3) Infinite more or less snooze repeats (not 4 then alarm disabled!);
4) Custom alarm sounds for each alarm.
There isn't an alarm clock on the planet that can compete.
Except that my bedroom alarm clock switches on a decent sound system. And
I can't forget to take it to the bedroom.
Of course if you need an alarm you can carry with you, not much use. As
I've no doubt Adam needs. I have all the alarms I need on this desktop.
Mainly as reminders to take an action.

 Apart from Wey Hey It's Monday every Tuesday morning.
Don’t need to remember when there is one of those Echo things
or something like that there.
Trouble is that those don’t work when you arent in the house.
IMO the best approach is to have it all in the phone,
with at least one of those Echo type devices next to
the bed so you don’t have to remember to take the
phone into the bedroom at night. And can ask the
Echo device what time it is so that if you wake up
in the dark you can check the time without having
to turn over to face the clock or put your glasses on.
