Research also shows that Sleep Apnea trumps desire to wake up when you would like to. Note: Should add that when I said "I had apparently dismissed my iOS alarms" that meant I had no idea I had done so. This happens a lot to me. So the alarms might be enough to begin the process of waking me up, and the Band's vibration then can wake me up when it's last. I'll try flipping the order tonight, but if I'm late to work tomorrow I'm just gonna tell my boss I was doing SCIENCE. lol!
