Alarm Clocks

I really want an alarm clock that tells you "alarm set for x hours from now" whenever you set an alarm.
  • I don't want sleep analysis of times, sounds or movements
  • I don't want to be woken during light sleep within a period of time
  • I don't want a reminder of when to sleep
  • I don't want night/yellow light modes
  • I don't want fancy sounds, weather or news reports 
  • I DONT WANT TO SOLVE PUZZLES TO TURN OFF THE ALARM

Unfortunately although Apple has run out of ideas and is poorly implementing whatever they can think of (
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7668973?start=15&tstart=0) at the cost of good design (forcing the clock app to night mode). They haven't thought of this. 

And I had a look at 3rd-party alarm clocks, this feature also isn't very common. But it looks like even for apps that have it, they're a poor replacement for the iOS clock, because they can't override the silent switch, and maybe even Do Not Disturb. Also running in the background severely restricts their notifications.

If I have to leave sounds on, what do I even need an alarm for?
