Lenovo Smart Clock is an alarm clock with Google Assistant inbuilt with it. It has a 4-inch display with 480×800 resolution. The screen is large enough for an alarm clock. It runs on the Android Things operating systems. The operating system by Android that runs on devices other than mobile phones. It also comes with decent quality speakers that can wake you up even from a deep sleep.

Lenovo Smart Clock can also run a good night routine with the help of Google Assistant. Just say “Good Night” and the clock will lower its brightness and also the intensity of the smart lights in the room. I find this feature really interesting. Research says that lowering the intensity of the light in your room a couple of hours before you go to bed can help you get more REM sleep.
You can also set multiple alarms with the help of Google Assistant. In the morning, just after the alarm is set-off, it will brighten the room by increasing the intensity of the smart lights in the room. Moreover, it also updates you with the weather in your area and alerts you if the conditions are harsh outside.
What I like about the Lenovo Smart Clock
I like that it has Google Assistant built in. This separates it from a regular alarm clock and makes it fairly advanced. It does a lot more than a regular alarm clock. You can connect it with nest cam and ask it to show live footage of any room in your house. It loads up with a couple of seconds and displays good quality footage. This is really important when you don’t feel like getting up from the bed and want to know what other people in your home are doing in another room. For instance, to watch a baby, etc.
What I don’t like about Lenovo Smart Clock
One downside of the Lenovo Smart Clock is its sound quality. The sound quality is decent but could have been better. Moreover, the volume adjustment dial is not very accurate. The volume either gets set too high or too low. High volume can be annoying for some people in the morning period. Overall, the speakers are decent since you can also play music. They are good enough to listen to country songs or jazz but not suitable for rock music.
Lenovo Smart Clock is priced at $79.99 and comes with a one-year warranty. There are two other modes as well which have more features like a large screen and more in-built memory. The 8-inch model is for $154.99 and 10-inch is for $194.99.
