Amazon's Echo Dot is about to get a little smarter. At its annual product announcement event in Seattle on Wednesday, the company announced a new version of the Dot with a digital clock display on the front. So, instead of asking for the time, you can save you breath and see for yourself.
The new LED display will show the clock, alarms, timers, and the temperature outside. When the alarm goes off, you can use the snooze feature by tapping the top of the device for an extra nine minutes for sleep. It's perfect for the nightstand or any place in your home that could use a clock.
While the old Echo Dot will still be available for purchase at $49.99, the new version will be priced at $59.99. It's available for preorder now and will ship on October 16th.
