Lenovo has announced Smart Clock Essential in India, to extend its smart home solutions. The new and mainstream Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is a connected digital smart clock designed for every room in the home, at an accessible mainstream price point.
Building on the Lenovo Smart Clock for the bedroom, the Smart Clock Essential extends the same hands-free, time-saving convenience to the rest of the home. It offers full voice support with Google Assistant and is Lenovo’s first smart device to support Hindi language commands.
The digital clock comes with an easy-to-read LED display which displays real-time information at a glance, the ambient light sensor that allows viewing from any angle or brightness, and Google Assistant which makes household chores much easier. The alarm clock supports using buttons to set the alarm, in addition to voice. It’s also a useful night-time companion with a built-in light that helps people walk around without bumping into things and has an integrated USB port to charge the devices overnight. The screen also features smart alarm suggestions based on the next day’s calendar events, as well as sunrise alarms that gently wake people by gradually increasing color and brightness before ringing the alarm.
With Google Assistant’s full voice support, users can easily control their smart home, with more than 40,000 compatible smart home devices from over 5,000 brands. Its far-field microphones pick up questions from nearly anywhere in the room or play tunes with its 3W speaker that can be grouped with other compatible smart speakers to amplify the music. Users can just say, “Hey Google, play my morning playlist.” It also offers feature parity with other Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers and supports voice match for up to six users at a time. The device also supports Hindi language commands. This software feature is specific to India, and the Smart Clock Essential will be Lenovo’s first device to support the Hindi language.
Pankaj Harjai, Director – Tablets and Smart Devices, Lenovo India said, “With an intent to bring comfort and ease in the busy lifestyles of our millennial consumers and families, we strive to design the most innovative and advanced smart home devices. Today, as remote working becomes the new normal and homes turn into office spaces, we are confident that the new Lenovo Smart Clock Essential will be a smart addition to any room in the house. This is a big design upgrade when compared to our previous smart clock which was specifically styled for bedrooms. With a new look and a wide range of smart features like voice controlled built-in Night Light and Google Home Assistant support even in Hindi, the Smart Clock Essential is a mainstream and affordable device, specifically for owners of smart home assistants who are looking to upgrade their clocks to a smarter and more compact clock.”
