The clock's display will show you basic time, weather and news information, but that's about it. It won't show you photos or play video like the full-sized Lenovo Smart Display, which came out in 2018.
It does have a touchscreen, and you can play music on it. You can also whack it to mute a wake-up alarm. That will stop the alarm, but once you dismiss the alarm it will execute your Good Morning routine.
The clock can give you a rundown of your daily schedule.
And basic traffic information.
A USB port lets you plug in a cord to charge another device.
Its small footprint makes it well suited to a nightstand. It will cost $80 when it goes on sale this spring.
