  • Smart Bedside Companion
    Reviewed by Kelby - September 8, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] ----- Summary ----- Verdict: Both functional and attractive, the Lenovo Smart Clock 2 is a welcome addition to my nightstand. Because it’s an alarm clock, smart display, speaker, and charger all in one little device, it declutters and makes my nightstand more useful. If you’re interested in a Google Assistant-enabled smart clock, this one should be at the top of your list. Pros: - Attractive design - Google Assistant - Wireless charging dock - 4” color touchscreen - Loud, crisp audio - Nightlight Cons: - No video streaming ----- Details ----- Design: What I love about the Lenovo Smart Clock 2 is that it provides a neat, centralized location for my tech. In addition to the wireless charging dock, there’s a USB-A port on the back that can be used for another device. I use that to charge my smartwatch. Other aspects of the design include volume up/down buttons on the top of the alarm clock, a microphone mute switch on the back for privacy, and a built-in nightlight. The nightlight is a ring around the charging dock under the display, and it’ll illuminate on voice command or when manually turned on from the touchscreen. I like that it’s a subtle light that illuminates my side of the bed but doesn’t disturb my wife. The fabric exterior of the alarm clock is a nice touch as well. Setup: Just a few minutes after unboxing, I had the Smart Clock 2 setup. I’m familiar with setting up Google Assistant devices in the Google Home app, but even if you’re not, the guided setup is quick and simple. I always appreciate an easy setup process. Alarm: The Smart Clock 2 wouldn’t be complete without functional alarm features. Thankfully it doesn’t disappoint. Multiple alarms can be set on a repeatable schedule and there’s a variety of customizations available like snooze length, alarm tone, setting it to slowly brighten the screen 30 minutes before wakeup time, and a Good Morning routine that can trigger when you shut off the alarm. Morning or night routines can be customized to brief you on weather or news, play music, control smart lights, and more. It’s all I could ask for in an alarm clock and more. Touchscreen: Other than being an effective alarm and displaying the time, the 4” color touchscreen on the Smart Clock 2 has different pages you can swipe between to see additional information like weather, your commute time, or quickly access Spotify playlists. My only wish is that video streaming was supported on the screen. I’m not going to watch a full movie on such a small screen, but being able to watch short YouTube videos would be nice. Audio: For its size, the audio produced by the Smart Clock 2 is good. I was pleasantly surprised by how loud it can get, as well as how crisp and clear voice responses and music are. If your main intent is to just listen to music, there are better alternatives for that, but with everything else packed into this little device, the audio was good enough for me.

  • Needs Another Update
    Reviewed by Shae - September 9, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As far as design, it’s a great size for a nightstand clock. It’s small, portable, and does just enough assisting with small daily tasks, such as an alarm, “Hey, Google”, weather, music, etc. It doesn’t have all of the functionality that a bigger unit/monitor would have but it performs great for those smaller more important tasks. There are a few things I’ve noticed, which I’m sure are just software updates. I’ve found several times throughout the day, also in a span of a few days, I would notice the unit restart itself. It is always random. It doesn’t change my settings but it will just cut off and then back on with its logo and then on again as if nothing happened. When the software becomes more stable then I’ll be able to give it 4.5 stars. There’s not many settings to adjust. You can easily change the clock face and color. You can set to be awaken by music of your choice or some of the music options they offer. It is a touch screen so easy to do everything with a swipe or just ask your Google Assistant. The display automatically adjusts to the light in the room and will be barely visible at night. I have to really focus to see the numbers at night when the room is pitch black so this shouldn’t bother sensitive people because of how dim the light gets. I love that about it. I’m not light sensitive though and it doesn’t bother my husband. The sound quality is not bad at all for this smaller device. It can get pretty loud, and it’s responsiveness to volume adjustments are fast. It’s not the best or most clear sound but it is just right for this. I mentioned responsiveness above when it comes to changing volume but it’s really responsive when speaking to assistant or just swiping through screens. Haven’t experienced any lag there. Love it’s portability. We can remove it from its dock and place it anywhere else throughout the home if need be. We are able to move it around effortlessly. The clock portion has to be plugged in to work, so depending on your home outlet setup, it can render it less portable for some, since it isn’t totally wireless. The dock itself functions as the wireless charger for your devices. It will only charge if the clock is attached to the base, as the power is only being supplied to the clock. When you place the clock back on the base or a device on the charging pad, the light on the dock will light up briefly. It’s a soothing not too bright light. The base itself is not large and can only hold smaller devices one at a time; Phones and watches. I notice that as I put my phone on it to charge it would stop charging shortly(seconds) thereafter. I would have to remove and replace my phone on it until the charging sign stayed on. I have multiple devices and it does this to all of them. It’s frustrating to put your device, especially your main phone to charge and wake up the next day and it’s on 2% because it failed to charge on this base. It does work however, you just have to play with it and watch it for 10 plus seconds to make sure it’s charging before you walk away. Oh and for those with a case, especially a case which allows wireless charging, it does work once you get it to charge. I have one with a case and one without. If it wasn’t for the two biggest problems I’ve experienced with this unit (charging and random resetting) it would be awesome. Especially if you’re looking for something with a smaller footprint than other assistants and something that’s a bit more portable. Also, eliminating extra charging cords on your nightstand but for now I’m sticking with my cords because I simply cannot rely on this charging pad. I say it’s worth it after these kinks are fixed with maybe another update because the initial update so far hasn’t fixed everything. Also this could just be my unit so I say give it a try, it’s perfect as a bedside clock and you can turn off the speakers anytime.

  • Great alarm clock and wireless charger
    Reviewed by ShawnInKB - September 15, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Simple and intuitive to use. It was easy to link to google assistant and is a great bedside alarm and wireless charger. You can listen to music or white noise just like you would on a google home. It has a night small footprint and easily charges my iPhone fully overnight. Best of all for me - the clock auto dims to a perfect setting at night. I like the bedroom to be very dark at night and this works well for me. You can still see the time, but it’s very faint and does not project light into the room.

  • Smart Clock With a Charger!!!
    Reviewed by Hmirza - September 5, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The new Lenovo Smart is a nice addition to any smart home with its new design and now with a fast-wireless charger, a USB port, and a night light built-in. The Lenovo smart clock 2 has a 4-inch touch customizable display and a speaker that is actually pretty loud for its size that I am sure that you will love. So, let go over some of the features and PROs and CONs of the new Lenovo Smart Clock 2. Features: Setup – The setup process for the Lenovo smart Clock 2 was actually very simple just the like previous model. You will need to download Google Home on your device and the application will guide you thru the rest of the process. It took me about 5 minutes to setup the clock from putting it together to the end of the setup. 4-Inch Display- So, like the previous model, the new Lenovo Smart Clock 2 also features a 4-inch color, touchscreen and a customizable display. The display can be used to display you pictures, weather or different variation of a clock. The top of the clock has two physical buttons for volume. The display can also be used with other devices such as viewing your doorbell or even your cameras, if you have them linked. Speaker & Mic - I am actually very surprised by the sound that you get this tiny little thing. The speaker on this clock actually packs a punch. The speaker can be used to play your favorite tunes, setup a wake alarm, or even talk to your google assistant. The best feature is the multiroom audio setup. So, like myself, if you own any other google assistant enabled devices they can all be linked up together for multi-room audio, so you can play your favorite tunes all over your house. Wireless Charging Pad – Unlike the previous model, which only had a USB port, the new Lenovo Clock comes with a wireless fast charging pad for your devices, along with a USB port so that you can charge up multiple devices and clear up the clutter of wire on your night stand. The Not so good: The only issue I had with the clock was that fact that I did not notice any changes or see any new features in the clock or even its software from the previous model. Yes, the charging pad is cool, the new night light is a nice add-on but it would have been nice to have some new features added on, like a camera for instance so that the clock could have also been used for video calling. PROS: MULTIROOM AUDIO CHARGING PAD NIGHT LIGHT CONS: NO NEW FEATURES OR CHANGES IN THE SOFTWARE – NEW SHELL WITH THE SAME OLD OPERATING SYSTEM Overall, I am pretty with the clock. I have been using everyday with my morning alarms, using it to control my smart lights and being able to view my doorbell and my cameras on it. The fast wireless charging pad is also a nice addition and helped us clear up some wire clutter from our night stand.

  • A smart choice for a “Smart Clock”
    Reviewed by Solrak - September 12, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] ============================== >>>>> Bottom Line Up front: <<<<< ============================== The Leno Smart Clock 2 (w/charging dock) is literally capable of doing everything your old “non-smart” alarm clock does; but in my opinion, does all those things way better. Having built in Google Assistant functionality along with extra useful design features, such as a built-in night light and wireless charging base help make the Smart Clock 2 a top choice if you’re considering a smart clock…..so long as you don’t have to have to be tied into the Amazon/Alexa Eco-System. I appreciated the Smart Clock 2 being a “clock” more so than many of the media steaming/consuming, video camera chat enabled “smart displays” that are out there. As a desktop companion, there wasn't much I couldn't do to stay on top my schedule and get things done with addition of Google Assistant functionality. ========================= - Overall Design/Aesthetics: - ========================= I am a fan of simple, clean, design aesthetics. That being said, the Smart Clock 2 ticks that box off quite well. The heather grey exterior covering on the main “display unit” has a nice clean, modern look that blends in with almost any desk, counter, or night table. The fabric like material feels durable, well formed; yet somehow soft at the same time, which I really liked. The charging base and integrated night light seamlessly blend in with the main display unit, and allows both pieces to appear as one physical unit. Thanks to the high strength magnets in the docking section, they also feel extra sturdy even when just picked up by the base alone. The plastic material used on the wireless charging base feels semi-slick and a little less “luxe” feeling in texture when compared to the main unit itself. I appreciate the little “flecks” of grey coloring emplaced into the exterior shell of the docking station, as it helped to hide dust and dirt; but something about those flecks made the base seem slightly off when contrasted to the grey used in the main speaker in my opinion. The "night light" ring also seamlessly blends into the grey base and is pretty hard to notice when not actively in use. I am always fan of multiple color options, and I think the Smart Clock 2 looks even more stylish in some of the other colors they make this model in (Abyss Blue or Shadow Black). The added USB Type A port on the back also allowed me to plug my Smart watch charger for even more functionality. . ===================== - Smart Clock 2 usage: - ===================== I’ve been using the Lenovo Smart Clock 2 (and its wonderful wireless charging dock) on my main desktop for a good week now, and I have been really happy how it has been working out for me. I currently own and have used a fair share of “smart” clocks and displays over the years, which is why I when I say I think the Lenovo Smart Clock 2 is worthy of serious consideration, its not for lack of comparison/time with other devices on the market. For starters, having the integrated wireless charging pad within reach has really been useful in keeping my phones topped up on power and always within arms reach while I am working at my desk. The charging pad area itself is reasonably sized, and functioned flawlessly with my Samsung Note 20 and Galaxy S21 (they even displayed the “fast wireless” charging indicator). Unfortunately, I could not get my Samsung Galaxy Watch 2 or Watch 4 to charge. I’m not sure if it has to do with the large raised “+” sign on the middle that may prevent flush contact with enough source, or some other technical reason however as I previously mentioned in the design portion; I got around this by plugging my watch charter into the USB-A port on the back of the with no issues. Surprisingly, I have found the built-in night light to be SUPER useful. Initially, I wasn’t sure if I was going to use it all but I have found it a nice source of ambient lighting for my general desktop area. It has helped me helped me see things and documents, while allowing to keep background lighting to a minimum and helping to reduce additional eyestrain from being on the computer for hours on end. Fun fact, the light can go as bright as 11 lumens – but I don't recommend keeping it at that level if your actually using to try and sleep. To add to that, you can even control the night light by simply using Google Assistant Voice Commands as well. Lenovo’s decision to include Google Assistant is what makes the Smart Clock 2 - "smart" to begin with. I’ve watched Google’s Assistant grow tremendously over the years, and thanks to this added functionality; there are so many possibilities that open up that only this type of digital assistance integration can bring. With just my voice, the Smart Clock 2 allowed me to control my smart bulbs around my house, set the temperature my Nest thermostat, check local traffic conditions before I headed out, and even just got verbal confirmation of what was on my Google calendar for the day (keep in mind you have to have given Google Assistant permissions/settings in order to get this added functionality. Keep in mind, this also means that some Amazon/Alexa specific devices (to include commands) and applications might not possibly be compatible/controllable on/through the Smart Clock 2, but I don't count that as deal breaker as that normally doesn't tend to be the case for most devices these days. I personally may not consider this a disadvantage, but your usage patterns may vary from mine. I generally didn’t use the Smart Clock 2 to stream music (nor do I on my other smart devices) – but the 3W front firing speaks sounded just fine from what I heard. So long as you keep your expectation of what a 1.5” speakers can do, I would say it is on par with everything else out there. The last thing I want to share are my thoughts on the display and UI of the Smart Clock 2 itself. This area is where I think the Smart Clock 2 may be lacking when compared to other devices out there. When I personally compared the Smart Clock 2 to my other “smart” display devices in my house, I found the Smart Clock 2 a little shorthanded when it comes to physical screen size and added lack of additional “tech” features. Don’t get me wrong the 4-inch IPS screen is sharp and responsive, but it is smaller than I would have liked/used to. I have 5,8,10 inch devices that are notably larger, and therefore easier to see at distance - when placed side by side. Unfortunately, the Smart Clock 2's user selectable clock faces don’t help much to "enlarge" the numbers in that regard either. Unlike some of my other devices, you can’t watch any streaming video, nor is there embedded camera functionality of any type. Again, I don’t need those things in my at my personal desktop area, but I know for some folks not having those types of features could be a deal breaker, especially if other similar devices have them – yet the Smart Clock 2 does not. I loved the Smart Clock 2 for just being a super easy to use Clock, that helped me stay organized and charge my phone - plain and simple. ========================== >>>>> Closing thoughts: <<<<< ========================== Thanks to the Lenovo Smart Clock 2’s Google Assistant integration and extra useful design features (night light and wireless charging base) – I think it offers something that the other smart displays and clocks out there don’t. Unfortunately, that also go against the Smart Clock 2 as well, when directly comparing against similar units. I really appreciated the simple, yet functional User Interface (UI) and streamlined 2-piece design. My main grip, honestly is with the screen size – make it BIGGER - especially if it is being focused as a more “dedicated” clock type unit (as compared to other smart “display” that don’t necessarily call themselves “clocks”). I really think the screen size should be at least an inch or two bigger and offer more choices/customization on the clock faces or Lenovo should offer more variety of sizes in the product line. Regardless, the Smart Clock 2 is excellent "dumb" alarm clock, a great "smart: alarm clock, but perhaps not the best smart alarm clock if your committed to the Alexa/Amazon ecosystem - or want a GIANT screen. I really don't think you'll disappointed regardless though.
