Lenovo Smart Clock Essential: Price and availability
Lenovo Smart Clock Essential has been launched in India with a price tag of Rs 4,499. The device will be available in a single soft-touch grey colour variant. It is scheduled to go on sale in India today via Lenovo.com, Flipkart, and will be later available in Lenovo offline retail channels.
Lenovo Smart Clock Essential: Specifications
Lenovo Smart Clock Essential features a 4″ easy-to-read LED display. There is an ambient light sensor that gives a better viewing angle as well as brightness to the clock. There are buttons on the smart clock to set up alarms but one can also set using their voice command as the clock is voice-enabled. There is a built-in light on the Lenovo smart clock that is helpful during the night to avoid accidents. In addition to this, the device comes integrated with a USB port to charge the devices overnight.
The screen on the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential features smart alarm suggestions based on the next day’s calendar events, as well as sunrise alarms that gently wake people by gradually increasing color and brightness before ringing the alarm. Like we said before, this clock is fully supported by Google assistants that can also hold sway over your entire smart home, with more than 40,000 compatible smart home devices from over 5,000 brands. Equipped with far-field microphones the smart device picks up questions from nearly anywhere in the room or plays tunes with its 3W speaker that can be grouped with other compatible smart speakers to amplify the music. To wake up all you need to command is “Hey Google, play my morning playlist.” The device works similarly to how we control Amazon Alexa Devices or Google Smart devices. Therefore it will provide parity with other Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers and supports voice match for up to six users at a time. The device also supports Hindi language commands. This software feature is specific to India, and the Smart Clock Essential will be Lenovo’s first device to support Hindi language.
In terms of connectivity, the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential includes Bluetooth 5.0, WLAN: 2.4G/5G Dual Band, IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. For storing content the device offers 4 GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. The dimensions are 121mm (W) x 64mm (H) x 83mm (L).
