Engineered for Functionality
The LED display is designed to be bright, easy to read, and visible from nearly any angle or across the room. If you're focused on something else, you can ask "Google, what time is it?," and the clock will answer you. Check the weather before going out, set timers or reminders for cooking or managing the kids' screen times, add items to your shopping list, and more with the Google Assistant.
Built-In Nightlight
The built-in 31-lumen nightlight lets you get up at night without stumbling around, having to carry your phone, or waking up other family members with ceiling lights. Additionally, the LED digits are just bright enough to allow you to see your surroundings, yet dim enough to foster a healthy sleep environment.
Enjoy Your Favorite Audio
Stream your favorite music playlists, radio stations, audiobooks, podcasts, and more by asking Google. You can also cast from a music app with the cast button in the app. With multiroom functionality, you can add the Smart Clock Essential to a speaker group to play media across multiple devices and rooms.
Control Your Smart Home
With the Google Assistant built-in, you can control over 40,000 devices from 5000 brands. Ask Google to set the temperature, dim the lights, and more. The USB port on the back can charge your smartphone or smart watch. You can also make a household-wide announcement by broadcasting to other compatible speakers or smart clocks throughout the house. Stream your favorite shows, movies, or music to your compatible TV or speakers with just your voice.

Lenovo Smart Clock Essential Reviews

LEDs Burnt out

I bought it for a clock but the LEDs made it useless. Bought 2 of them and both have the problem. Only way to tell time is to ask Google and hear it audibly. Definitely a manufacturer defect.

Super awesome little clock!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is great little smart device! We use it in the bathroom so we can stream music to it or ask the forecast while in the shower. It hears us give commands from the bedroom as well even with the door closed! The response times for “hey google” commands is much faster with this and the other (next step up) Lenovo smart clock than it is with the Google Nest Hub. The best Hub has been reassigned to the garage since it doesn’t work as well as the Lenovo smart clocks! It was bothering my wife a great deal how slow it was and with the Lenovo clock there is no complaint! The sound from the speaker is decent as well. It is not a bass giant, or a face melter by any stretch, but it is quite excellent for tunes in the bathroom!

Nifty little device

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought it for my son who likes to have the occasional night light and likes music cast into his room during bedtime. We have the mic turned off which is a nice feature. My only complaint is that the night light dimmer can only be adjusted via voice commands. There is a special button press to turn it on and off without the mic on. Using the volume buttons for a few sec after it turns on does not seem like a difficult solution to implement, but it's a fairly minor nit overall.

Awesome Buy, will not be disappointed

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This digital clock is a gem to me, I wished I brought it sooner with or without my student discount, I absolutely love this and I am purchasing another one for my upstairs bedroom.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to set it with an existing Google home environment. Once added to Google home, date and time correctly sync. No more manual setting the clock.

How did I not have this before??

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy set up. Tells my kid jokes, sets & schedule alarms, streams radio, and plays white noise or dream inspiring music when I sleep. Unsure how I got by without this thing before. A GREAT purchase.

Daily Unstable Connectivity

I can't recommend this device. It disconnects from WiFi and must be restarted daily, if not multiple times per day. This is happening within the first week of ownership so who knows what kind of problems will plague this device in the future. This issue does not occur with Google Home devices - I will not be buying off-brand Google Assistant devices in the future.

Nice smart clock for the price

how can I turn off the flashing colon on the time display?
Asked by: Robert
First try a restart of Your Lenovo Smart Clock: Unplug your device. Wait 10 seconds. Then Plug it back in and try setup again. If the colon between the numbers is still flashing after this restart, now reset your Smart Clock back to original factory settings: With the device powered on, press down both the volume- button and alarm button for 12 seconds. Follow the on screen setup guide to initialize your Smart Clock Essential. After this initialization the colon should stop flashing. If it continues to flash, we recommend you contact Lenovo Tech Support for Smart Devices at: 866-426-0911.

Yes. The Lenovo Smart Clock would need to be plugged into a wall socket for power and would also needs to be connected to WiFi internet to function properly.
