The Smart Clock Essential is a pared-down version of the Lenovo Smart Clock that launched last year. Where the 2019 edition had a full-color smart display built in to show your calendar and the feed from a smart camera, the 2020 version is basically just a black-and-white alarm clock display wrapped around a Google Assistant smart speaker. It will show you the time, the day of the week and the current temperature, but that’s about it. It’s a closer competitor to thethan the smart display.
As a smart speaker, the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential will still play music and you can still interact with it like you would with anyspeaker. It’s also only $50, making it $10 cheaper than the Amazon’s new, spherical Echo Dot with Clock.
Lenovo says you’ll find the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential available from Walmart and, among other retailers.
