Lenovo is expanding its smart home offering with the new Smart Clock, a purpose-made bedside alarm clock that slots in well underneath the Lenovo Smart Display. With just a 4-inch screen, the Smart Clock is notably smaller than even the Google Home Hub — and in turn scales back its capabilities to match the simplified needs of a smart alarm clock for your bedroom.

Amazon’s new $30 Echo Wall Clock puts all your timers at eye level

Alexa, countdown two minutes.

Alexa has changed how I use timers. It’s just so easy to say “Alexa, countdown two minutes” that I end up using it for just about everything.

Those games are so easy to get addicted to, not  [Read More…]

The wall clock finally gets an upgrade with the Amazon Echo Wall Clock

Best answer: This wall clock is an understated and almost elegant timepiece that might not be as “smart” as the rest of the smart home tech we see, but what it does it does well: keep accurate time and display your Alexa timer.

The iHome iAVS1 is a boring Echo Dot alarm clock

It’s a clock with an Amazon Echo Dot shoved inside. And I’m having no problem containing my excitement.
