Amazon’s Alexa enabled wall clock is back on the market; following the devices’ short hiatus because of connectivity issues. The clock launched for $29.99 and quickly became a best-seller on the company’s website when it debuted a few months ago. Called the “Amazon Echo Wall Clock,” the device offers all the functions of a typical wall clock, but with built-in LED lights that work as a timer. Perfect for kitchens or timeout corners, the LEDs let you see how long a toddler or a pot of water has left to simmer.
Amazon pulled the device when customers complained that there were issues with the Bluetooth connectivity. If you already have an Amazon Echo Wall Clock, a software update is on the way that should fix any issues that you may be experiencing. The update is automatic, just like the updates with Alexa Echo Dots or Alexa Echos, so you won’t have to do anything if the clock is connected to your network.
If you were in the market for a fancy wall clock, you can find the device right here on Amazon for $29.
Amazon’s other new release, the “Amazon Microwave,” is also a bestseller on the site. Going for $59 the microwave is .7 Cubic Feet and works with Alexa. In this device, you get all of the typical microwave functions, but you can have Alexa deal with the settings. You can tell Alexa to defrost vegetables, make popcorn, cook potatoes, and reheat rice without looking for a single setting. The microwave offers 10 power levels, a kitchen timer, a child lock, and a turntable. You need an Alexa enabled device, like an Alexa Echo Dot or an Alexa Echo to connect to these devices, but Amazon has bundles available to get you started. You can find the Amazon Microwave right here on Amazon if you are looking for an even easier way to reheat your snacks, or if you have a housewarming party coming up.
