Today, Lenovo and Google® have unveiled the Lenovo Smart Clock with the Google Assistant, the latest addition to Lenovo’s innovative smart living product line. Purpose-made for your bedroom, the Lenovo Smart Clock helps you unwind in the evening, kickstart your day, control your smart home and listen to your favorite music with multi-room audio grouping.
As the latest device in Lenovo’s smart home family, the Lenovo Smart Clock adds to an ever-growing line-up that now includes the highly acclaimed Lenovo Smart Display and the Lenovo Smart Home Essentials introduced last year, bolstering Lenovo’s continued commitment to making families’ lives easier and more productive.
As a convenient smart home device, the Lenovo Smart Clock supports voice and touch controls on an unobtrusive 4-inch IPS screen to perform tasks that are regularly carried out before and after sleep. With its compact size built for sitting on nightstands, the Lenovo Smart Clock blends into your bedroom decor, with a full fabric soft-touch cover and a touch screen.
Higher quality sleep
We’ve optimized the Lenovo Smart Clock to help users cultivate better sleep habits. Recent studies have shown that excess cognitive stimulation1 through too much screen time before bed can profoundly disrupt our sleep patterns. Most of us know this already—we’ve all stayed up way past bedtime to binge-watch a new show on our smartphones or tablets or scrolled through notifications and emails just before bed. Our sleep is now less uninterrupted—a third of us wake up in the middle of night just to check our phones, while 10 percent check them the first thing in the morning.2
That’s why we’ve created the Lenovo Smart Clock to serve as your ultimate bedroom companion to cut down on disruptive screen time throughout the evening and help improve your sleep hygiene. The Google Assistant makes it easier to set up sleep routines, such as dimming the lights3 and displaying your first calendar event with just a single command, such as “Hey Google, Good Night.” Don’t worry about your phone though, we’ve included a full-size USB port for convenient charging.
Full smart speaker inside, great audio outside
Research also shows that ambient noise, relaxing music or guided sleep meditation can help promote more restful sleep4—which is why we paid extra attention to speaker quality in the Lenovo Smart Clock. Ask the Google Assistant to play some relaxing music or guided meditation, and the Lenovo Smart Clock will play it clear and clean.
Don’t get fooled by its compact size—the Lenovo Smart Clock hides a full-range 6W speaker and two passive radiators that can fill up a large bedroom, tuned with the latest background noise reduction technology for enhanced radio listening. And with multi-room functionality, you can also add the Lenovo Smart Clock to a home speaker group3 and play music, audiobooks, podcasts and radio across multiple devices in several rooms. The Lenovo Smart Clock also works with ChromecastTM, so you can stream shows and music on your TV or speakers with just your voice.
Wake up more refreshed
Awakening to the Lenovo Smart Clock is designed to be as pleasant and refreshing as possible with the Google Assistant’s gentle wake-up routine. Set your lights3 to progressively brighten and your alarm to gradually increase in volume starting 30 minutes before your scheduled wake time. Your customized morning alarm will then automatically trigger a morning routine, telling you about today’s weather, your personal agenda and reminders, as well as displaying your commute to work. And whatever your choice of sound, music or ringtones to wake up to, just tap on the Lenovo Smart Clock to snooze or dismiss the alarm.
What’s more, users can now have another convenient and affordable hub from which to control their home. Set the Lenovo Smart Clock when you wake up to automatically turn on your coffee maker3 in the kitchen or heater in the living room. Or check your front door security camera3 and the kids’ room from your bed. The Lenovo Smart Clock connects seamlessly with every smart device in your home, supporting over 10,000 products and 1,000 partners and brands.
And in keeping with the desire for more uninterrupted sleep, we’ve made the Lenovo Smart Clock as unobtrusive as possible. And because we respect customer privacy, we’ve included a mute button for those who want the Lenovo Smart Clock to stop listening. You won’t even notice it’s there most of the time—the 4-inch screen will only call attention when needed, so there are limited distractions. When not in use, the screen showcases the time with multiple customizable clock faces.
Lenovo Smart Clock can be programmed to complement your wake and sleep cycles, while offering visually assisted experiences when you need them the most. Just start with “Hey Google.”
