Microsoft Band Alarm and Cortana

Here is what I would like to accomplish - is it possible between the MS Band and Windows Phone.

I would like to set a wake up alarm that only vibrates my Band and does not alarm on my phone (without un-pairing/disabling Bluetooth, etc.)

Here is what I've attempted thus far with some results:
1) setting an alarm on the Band via Cortana - creates/syncs an alarm on both devices however the band alarm is suppressed when in sleep mode. The phone wakes me up but the band does not alarm.

2) setting an alarm directly on the phone - same thing as #1

3) setting an alarm directly on the band (no cortana.) the alarm is not suppressed when in sleep mode, thus waking me up, but my phone is going of too - which I don't want because it wakes the wife.

Is it possible??

Currently no, I've attempted the above and I'm going to proceed with #3 turning all alarms off on phone and use the Band to wake me in the morning. This is going to be a hassle, since I don't want to wake up at 430am on the wknds too...

We need a OS update to fix this.
