Aside from the cute design and fabric-covered case, we appreciated Lenovo’s smart clock features like the ambient light sensor and sunrise alarm, which gradually brighten the screen 30 minutes before the alarm sound. Swiping from the top reveals a button to play music and a switch for all smart lights. You can also set up a smart home routine for “good night”, with which you can, for example, automatically adjust the temperature and switch off the television. All of these actions also work through Google Assistant voice commands.
Given that the Smart Clock is designed to be used in a bedroom, the lack of a camera is actually a privacy benefit. You can also turn the microphone on and off for more privacy. The main drawbacks are that it cannot play videos or photos or make video calls. All in all, it got an excellent score of 87 in our review.
Since the introduction of the Smart Clock, Lenovo has introduced a much simpler version called the Smart Clock Essential. That version costs $ 50, however, so you can now purchase the advanced version from Best Buy for $ 1
