Acan be a helpful device to have around the house, but not everyone wants or needs some of the more niche features that pricier models provide. This keeps it simple and focuses on the more basic functions that you'll actually use, and right now you can pick it up at a bargain.

This second-gen Lenovo smart clock is a helpful companion for just about any room in your house.

You can ask it to set alarms, check the weather, schedule appointments and more, as well as stream your favorite music and podcasts completely hands-free.
It can also be used to control other, and is compatible with devices from Arlo, Hue, Nest and Wink, though not Amazon Alexa. There's no built-in camera, so no video chatting, though that may be a bonus if you're concerned about privacy.

CNET's Molly Price liked thelast year, saying, "It's for folks who want a smart display smaller than what Google currently offers in the 7-inch Nest Hub, but who don't need to, say, watch YouTube videos or view camera and doorbell feeds from other brands." Her main criticism was its price -- $90 at the time -- which this sale handily takes care of.
