For 2019 that ideal is being distilled in different flavours, with the LenovoSmart Clock doing exactly what it says on the tin: acting as a Google Assistant-powered bedside clock, with numerous great feature of Google Home Hub, but in a simplified format more suitable for an alarm clock. Unfortunately, it's powered via a non-USB cable, making you reliant on their in-the-box cable for getting it powered. About a half hour before your alarm is set to go off, the Smart Clock will slowly ramp up its screen brightness and cycle from dark to light colors, creating a sort of simulated sunrise in your bedroom. Well, Lenovo is aiming to bring them back from the dead! Lenovo has also offered some exciting customizable clock faces.
From a UI perspective the device can operate exactly as any Google Home speaker can, with voice control, including multi-cast speaker groups and access to the Google Assistant verbal smart home controls and routines. 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.
Hopefully, additional cards / functionality will be added and perhaps Photos and Home View will roll out later. Time will tell how well it's received.
The device, which can easily sit on a bedside table in an unobtrusive manner, can offer the kind of information that people would expect from a Smart Clock.
The Lenovo Smart Clock will be available from "Spring 2019", priced $79.99.
As this is Google-centric, any Google calendar appointments will sync between Android phone and the Smart Clock, with the software not only able to present the calendar - but also suggest alarm times. Let us know below.
