Gear S3 - Why can't I silence the alarm?!

Hi all,

 

I've got a weird problem when trying to set an alarm, I don't seem to have the option to set it to vibrate only, it always seems to have sound! 

 

When setting an alarm there is 3 screens indicated by the 3 dots at the top, the first is for setting the time, the second is for setting the days and I presume the 3rd is for setting sound and vibrate functions, however, on mine there is no 'next' option after the 2nd screen only 'save'!

 

Has anyone else encountered this? Any idea how I can fix it?

You can swipe the screen to the left and get over to the setting screen.
Good Luck!

This worked.  It seems so stupid that there isn't a "Next" option like for the screen DIRECTLY before it when you're setting your alarm.  You can see the little dot at the top indicating there's another screen of options for alarm setting, but "Save" is the only option listed, rather than "Next".  Big Fail, Samsung.

 

Thanks for your solution of just swiping with your finger, though, userR1...

I have the exact same problem with the new Samsung galaxy watch but the proposed solution does not work on the galaxy watch.

What type of device are you using with the galaxy watch?

I have the same issue, using Galaxy Watch with a Pixel 3aXL. My Gear S3 had a silent vibrate-only alarm which I loved because it only woke me up. The Galaxy Watch either has hidden this feature so cleverly I can't find it or it lacks it, which is sort of shocking since this is most certainly a feature that makes a smart watch valuable to a subset of customers.

One other solution is to install a different app for alarms in mobile and turn off all samsung system alarms.
