Once you decide to buy the best vibrating alarm clock, you need to take into consideration the price you will be willing to pay for the item before going online. if you don't' have a price that you will pay for the item, you should have a range that you can work with. setting your price helps you save time when you go shopping but you have to ensure that your price is not too low.
Alarm clocks for heavy sleepers tend to be higher than $20.

However, if you have seen commercials of alarm clocks with the whistles and bells that get you out of the bed at the precise time that you want, then you might need to shell out over $100.
Where will you place your alarm clock when it gets delivered? Would it be on your bedside table? Dresser? Or on the floor? Most heavy sleepers need to ensure that the alarm is right close to them so they can hear the alarm when it's activated and snooze it immediately. Others won't mind having it far from them so they don't accidentally fall it off the table or shut it down during their sleep which will lead to them missing their wake-up time.
