- Google and Lenovo teamed up to create an $80 smart alarm clock.
- The Lenovo Smart Clock can tell the time and weather, play podcasts and the news, and wake you up gently with brightness and animations.
- The clock will go on sale this spring.
At the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show, Google unveiled the Lenovo Smart Clock, a touchscreen alarm clock with Google Assistant built in.
The clock, which will cost $80 when it goes on sale this spring, can tell the time and weather, play podcasts and the news, and control your smart home devices. Over time, the clock will offer alarm suggestions based on your routine each day, and it will have the ability to wake you up “gently” using brightness and animations rather than sound.

The clock is covered in a soft, gray cloth and has a 4-inch display. It looks a lot like the Google Home Hub,
