Lenovo Smart Clock Review

by birtanpublished on February 20, 2021

This is Lisa from mobile tag review and yes it is a smart clock this is the Lenovo smart clock and it's a Google assistant integrated device now we review a lot of lenovo laptops and when they asked me to review this I thought hmm and I ended up actually loving it we're gonna look at it now all right so what is this thing obviously we know it's a clock because it's called the smart line right it has a four inch IPS touchscreen it's 800 by 480 resolution so it's not SuperDuper high resolution that 4 inch footprint and that kind of nice fabric covered design that looks a lot like the Lenovo smart display we

Reviewed a while ago works out really well on the nightstand it's not humongous it doesn't take up too much space because it will be beside your bed and you might be making nookie there is a microphone slider switch so you can turn that off so you can have absolute complete peace of mind when you're getting jiggy with it as you might guess it has a variety of clock faces I like the one that integrates the weather because here in Texas we have pretty wild and wacky weather and you can swipe over you can get your news you can get traffic and commute information in fact

There's a good morning routine where once the alarm goes off it can tell you what your first calendar appointments are what your commute is gonna be like what the news headlines are for a variety of sources it just starts playing them out loud it has a speaker it's a 3 watt speaker with two passive radiators 6 watt maximum and actually the sound on this is pretty good it's not gonna replace your home stereo system by any means but it's perfectly pleasant to listen to the latest NPR news cast as you're getting ready in your morning because there's a Google

Assistant integrated device you can use your voice to do things like control the thermostat if you happen to have a smart thermostat that works with Google stuff so that's pretty nice you wake up at 3 a.m. and the winter and you like really chilly you don't think it had a bed out from under the covers you just tell it I'm gonna say hey George so I don't set off everybody's Google devices who's watching this so you just say hey George rage raise the thermostat one degree for example if you want to shut off the bed lights or you think you might have forgotten to shut off the kitchen lights

If you notice Martin GE lights see lights or if you have philips hue that sort of thing you can tell it from the comfort of your bed to shut those lights off or if you get up at the crack of dawn in the winter and it's still dark out you can tell it to turn those lights on before you even get to the kitchen so you don't kill yourself on the way there yes it can play music you can play google play music you can play youtube music Spotify Pandora and deezer what can't you do despite the fact that it has a display you can't play videos on this or look at

Photos phones might be nice I wouldn't mind a little mini photo slideshow but then again it's only a 4-inch screen not much impact there for the videos part I am happy that it doesn't have this because I'm trying to go to bed and not watch yet another YouTube video or whatever it is and let's face it my smartphone screen is actually larger and higher resolution if I really want to watch videos before I go to bed this little guy isn't gonna be the place to do it but I think it's a very good unwind device I really don't want it on Google nest hub for example which costs

$130 so you can get it for lower price on sale but I don't want all that much functionality beside my bed because I will never go to sleep this thing is $79.99 and might be a little high for a smart alarm clock even though it has a lot of functionality but knowing Lenovo there would be sales at $59.99 I get a lot more excited by it I have already found it indispensable we do use a Google home and Google assistant products and the house I actually did want a satellite the main Google home is downstairs so this one's upstairs so in case I'm using an iPhone instead of an

Android device on a given particular day I still have something that is available and it's listening to me so I can give commands when I'm upstairs too another thing I like is really excellent auto brightness control this thing gets really dim at night and you can still see it which is good but I've had so many clocks smart clocks not so smart clocks that were just too bright all the time and through my eyelids I could see a little bit of light and it was disturbing but they do have a Sun Rise feature so it's 30 minutes before your alarm set to go off it can if you like

Automatically gradually raise the brightness so kind of subconsciously it actually is a little bit effective to kind of move you towards waking out before it happens you can choose from a variety of alarm wake-up sounds you can actually set independent alarm so they can have different wakeup tunes playing they can have different volumes they can have different snooze intervals speaking of snooze if you wanted to stop ringing when the alarm goes off or snooze you give it a whack and I'm in a whack we're not talking agenda tap because they don't want you to

Accidentally turn off your alarm you give it a whack and you can your choice either kill the snooze or kill the alarm completely there are volume control buttons up top that's it four buttons on the back that's the microphone slider like I said for your privacy and there's a USB port so you can actually plug in your phone's charger or a wireless charge or whatever it is into it as well which is pretty convenient it also uses its smarts to good effect so if you want it can help you and suggest an alarm time based on what your next appointment is the following

Morning it looks at the time of day so if it's the middle of the day it figures maybe you want to take a little nap for example which is not an option that will show up at night you get the idea so overall it kind of does everything I wanted and doesn't do the things that I don't want to be tempted by like video playing and all that sort of thing it does it really well as an alarm clock that gets dim when it should you dim is bright during the day when the lights are on so it's still visible it's great variety of alarm time is easy to set with your voice there's nothing worse

Than all these alarm clocks that are so complicated you look at the manual every time you need to do something with them obviously it automatically set some time on the internet time you don't need a backup battery if the power goes out as a result it will just sync up the time when it boots back up you've got all the things you can do with Google assistant right there in the bedroom which is pretty darn handy given the fact that most of us don't have Google homes everywhere so that's another smart clock and like I said I really like it a lot it is what it is it doesn't try to be

What it's not and when it comes to something that's sitting at your bedside where you want automation but not too much distraction this actually delivers pretty well not me super mobile tech review be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more cool tech videos and thumbs up if you like this vid
