Lenovo, a Chinese technology giant has officially unveiled a new smart clock, which is essentially a smaller version of its smart display that comes with Google Assistant. This smart clock from Lenovo is designed to do bunch of jobs from telling you the time to waking you up in the morning, playing music, charging devices and much more. Another highlight of this device is that it can be set up with a Google Assistant Routine specifically for sleeping that means you can put your devices on silent mode or turn off with a voice command.

To recall, Google added the ability to set music alarms with Google Assistant just a year ago and the American tech giant is moving fast as far as its rivalry with Amazon is concerned. Moreover, the company seems to be aggressive for locking customers in its smart home ecosystem. Additionally, the tech giant is looking to attract customers with Google Assistant by mentioning that it will fulfill all your needs if you already own Chromecast and Google Home.
On the other hand, Amazon's Echo Spot alarm clock with Alexa was introduced in the market more than a year ago. Even, the company expanded its own Alexa line-up by adding new minimalist wall clock displaying timers set with voice assistant. In a bid to keep up with competition, Google needs to amplify the range of products backed by Google Assistant.
