At CES 2019, the Lenovo Smart Clock was unveiled early last year. This is a compact smart display that can display the clock face, weather, calendar and other useful information. The smart alarm clock has a built-in speaker, as well as a USB port for charging gadgets. Overall a very nice device, but the $ 80 price tag seems to scare off many customers.
Therefore, Lenovo decided to introduce a slightly simplified version of the smart alarm clock called Smart Clock Essential. The device is equipped with a 4-inch LED display that displays the clock and weather. There is a night light function. The rear panel has a USB port for charging other devices. Also, the alarm clock is equipped with a 3W speaker and microphones so that you can communicate with Google Assistant.
Thus, the novelty takes an intermediate place between a smart speaker and a smart display (smart alarm clock). It has a display, but touch interaction is not available. Nice bedside device that was priced at $ 50. It will go on sale in September. I think if you wait for traditional sales and a small discount, it will be a very good gift for users who have a Google ecosystem at home.
