Lenovo have announced the launch of a Smart Clock Essential which is another addition to their smart device/smart home portfolio. Designed like a traditional alarm clock, this digital clock comes with a host of connected features and with the capability to display real-time information to make life easier for the users.
The Smart Clock Essential builds on its predecessor, the Smart Clock – which was primarily designed for the users’ bedrooms. The Smart Clock Essential looks to incorporate the same time-saving and hands-free features of its predecessor and expand it into something that can be seamlessly used throughout the users’ homes.

Along with a 4” LED display which comes with an ambient light display that allows viewing from multiple angles through adjustable brightness (with a nightlight of 31 lumens), the Smart Clock Essential also supports Google Assistant and is Lenovo’s first smart device to support voice commands given in Hindi. That’s a big and positive step up the innovation ladder for Lenovo, opening this product up to a larger target audience.
The Smart Clock Essential has 2 microphone arrays and Lenovo claims that these microphones can ‘pick up questions from nearly anywhere in the room’. The new-age digital clock’s 3W speakers can also be paired with other compatible speakers and the sound quality can be amplified easily. Lenovo also states that “it also offers feature parity with other Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers and supports voice match for up to six users at a time”.
