Lenovo has refreshed its popular Smart Clock Essential for 2022. This time around, the Chinese brand has dropped the Google Assistant in favour of Amazon’s Alexa. Apart from displaying time, the Smart Clock Essential lets you set reminders, ask queries, control lights, and even add products to your Amazon cart with voice commands. Much like its predecessor, the Smart Clock Essential features a textured fabric.
Lenovo Smart Clock Essential Features
The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential sports a non-touch monochrome LCD screen. It packs in a 1.5″ 3W front-firing speaker and dual microphone setup. The clock is powered by Amlogic A113X processor and 4GB RAM. For connectivity, the gadget relies on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.1. The Smart Clock Essential features volume and power buttons on the top. Due to the lack of an in-built battery, the clock needs to be plugged in at all times. The device sports a full-size USB port that can be used for charging your mobile.
To encourage your mirage of privacy, Lenovo has added a mute switch on the new Smart Clock Essential. The gadget comes with customisable clock faces though you can’t do much on a monochrome display. The clock comes with a neat Ambient Light Dock. It has eight light modes including warm sunset, ocean blue, cherry gorgeous, and rainbow light. You can cycle through all these options by simply double-tapping on the clock or via voice command.
