Amazon unveils Echo Wall Clock

Some IoT for $30 USD

First announced in September, the Echo Wall Clock looks now pretty interesting coming at an attractive $30 price point. As you can imagine this isn't just your standard wall clock since it packs a few interesting features. Anyway even without internet connection, it looks like a decent 10-inch clock.

Once it's paired with another Echo device, it will connect to the internet and set the time itself. The Echo Wall Clock can check if it's running fast or slow and adjust the clock by itself, saving you the hassle of pulling a clock off the wall and adjusting it yourself. The clock can display and manage multiple timers, countdowns and alarms all at once.

Design wise, underneath the white quadrant there is a cycle of 60 white LEDs each of which line up with a minute on the clock. When a timer is on, each LED will light up as time passes. If a countdown is up, each LED will turn off one by one.

With their Echo devices Amazon appears to be adding some more functionality and/or ease of use to the living room by adding internet connections to everyday devices. We’re curious to see what this company is going to come up with next, that should/could make our lives a little bit easier.
