After a first version of the Nest Hub, Google is returning with a second generation of its smart display which focuses on functions around sleep thanks to its Soli sensor. Here is the review of the Google Nest Hub 2nd gen. (launched at €99.99)…
The Nest Hub 2nd gen. is mainly aimed at restorative sleep extremists. This smart display has nothing more to offer than its “Sleep Tracking” function compared to the previous version, which was already very successful. This assistant is always full of options and constitutes an excellent interface for controlling your connected home.
- Presence of a brightness sensor.
- Interface that facilitates access to control of connected home equipment.
- Excellent voice recognition quality.
- Futile sleep tracking, but interesting for some.
- Musical listening not recommended.
- Screen with mixed performance (dull color rendering).
- Few additional functions compared to the previous version.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude the prices of stores whose the VAT policy is not clear (so-called “gray” stores, typically in the case of imports from China).
The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is nothing more and nothing less than a small clock connected to Google Assistant that does its job, nothing more, nothing less. If the screen doesn’t matter to you, you can always opt for the Nest Mini which provides the same services at a lower cost.
