The Lenovo Smart Clock Esssential is a small smart display which operates Google Assistant. If it looks like the Smart Clock tested previously, the Essential gets rid of a touch screen but has a night light for a gentle awakening.
The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is no more and no less than a small clock connected to Google Assistant that does its job, no more, no less. If the screen doesn’t matter to you, you can always go for the Nest Mini, which provides the same services at a lower cost.
- Simple to use and easy to configure.
- No front camera (for those worried about their privacy).
- Good voice recognition.
- Pleasant night light.
- Not recommended for music listening.

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 prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
