When it comes to smart bedside speakers there have been some notable products -- including the Amazon Echo Dot with Clock and the now-discontinued Insignia Voice  -- but the new Harman Kardon Citation Oasis may be the most useful-looking yet.

The Harman Kardon Citation Oasis ($199) does pretty much everything you need from a smart alarm clock -- not only does it have an LED clock like the Amazon Dot, along with a built-in voice assistant (Google), but it also has wireless charging for your phone.

The Oasis also works as a streamer with Chromecast and Apple AirPlay capabilities, and if you want to get a bit more sleepy bo-bos, the speaker has a sleep mode option that automatically turns off Wi-Fi during the night. 

Meanwhile, taking on the Sonos Move and the Bose Portable Home Speaker is the portable Citation 200 speaker ($299) with the Assistant and streaming features of the Oasis, plus IPX4 splash-proof protection and a built-in rechargeable battery with 8 hours of playtime. 

Both speakers support Bluetooth and will be available in spring 2020 in a choice of either gray or black.
