CES is slated to kick off this week and we’re expecting to see a boatload of new gadgets come out of Las Vegas. One early release that has caught our eye is the Vobot Clock with built-in support for Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service. Dubbed “the first of its kind”, this alarm looks to build off the massive holiday success of Echo and Dot. Vobot Clock looks like something you’d see from Sphero with its friendly digital facial features. Headlining is the “sleep coach” that monitors your wakeup and bedtime to help increase energy and quality of rest. The built-in 5W speaker offers a variety of warm alarm tones but also provides white noise, too.
Of course, Alexa functionality brings access to Amazon’s wide range of skills and control over smart home products like Philips Hue, Nest and more. You’ll be able to kick off your morning with the latest news, weather and sports (which is one of our favorite Dot features). There are no external buttons on Vobot clock, but rather it is controlled completely by voice and movements. For example, covering the face stops an alarm and flipping it over snoozes the device. At $35, this is bound to be a popular buy for consumers looking to jump into the world of Alexa. It is expected to hit online shelves in February.
Vobot Clock is a cost-effective smart alarm with many creative features. When it comes to the sleep coach programme, pre-set wakeup and bedtime solution will help users fall asleep faster and wake up earlier. The proactive reminder function will tell or show users the right things at the right time. In addition, customizable alarm let consumers wake up from delighting music; dot matrix display makes everything clear at the first sight; internal 5W speaker makes sound clear around the room without connecting to any external amplifiers. The voice-controlled feature enables consumers to eliminate a lot of hassles that are usually caused by looking for specific App and setting it on smartphones. Its small-sized outline is convenient for users to place it in a variety of locations, such as bedroom nightstand, kitchen counter, living room, or anywhere that needs a voice-controlled companion.
