Google's and Lenovo’s Smart Clock makes your morning alarm less very bad

Lenovo's Smart Clock is an adorably tiny display with Google Assistant

Armed with all of the fancy artificial intelligence technology that Google Assistant has been endowed with, they've taken many of it and forged its smart alarm clock in the Lenovo Smart Clock! Much like Google Home Hub, the Lenovo product can be used as an interface to switch on smart lights/plugs, trigger Google Routines at given times, and so forth. "It comes with a 4" IPS LCD 480 x 800 touch screen display, 6W speaker, WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5 and runs on Android things, but not the same version that you'll find on non-Google Smart Displays. Well, Lenovo is aiming to bring them back from the dead!

Last year, we saw a bunch of brands launch smart speakers with touchscreens, including a revamped Echo Show from Amazon and several devices powered by Google Assistant. Multiple clock faces are available, and it should go on sale this spring for $79.99.

Now the cards seem limited to a few functions, time / clock, setting alarms, what's next on your Google Calendar, weather and commute updates. Google told us, however, that it's still exploring what kinds of visual experiences could work well on screens this size, so it probably won't be too long before these things start to do more. What's not there is Google Photos to turn your clock into an ambient photo frame during the day, a camera for Duo video calls, Duo for voice calls and most importantly Google's new Home View control centre for home automation control. The Smart Clock has been created to adapt itself to its user's sleeping habits, so hopefully it won't turn on the lights at 3 am (unless you want it to) or play The Who's greatest hits at full blast while you're trying to catch forty winks. Launched in United States at CES 2019 for a price tag of $80, the Lenovo Smart Clock is slated to be shipped from this spring. Even, the company expanded its own Alexa line-up by adding new minimalist wall clock displaying timers set with voice assistant.
