Amazon's new Echo Dot has a built-in clock

  Amazon's new Echo Dot has a built-in clock How is Amazon going to improve on last year's Echo Dot? By turning it into an alarm clock, it seems. The company has introduced a fourth-generation Dot with a clock built into the side. You won't have to ask Alexa what time it is when you wake up prematurely. It can also display extras like the temperature or alarm times to answer some of your other obvious questions. And if you do use it as an alarm clock, you can tap it to snooze the alarm for some extra shut-eye.The new Dot will sell for $60, with pre-orders starting today.

Rather than redesigning a whole new Echo Dot, Amazon is introducing the Echo Dot with Clock. For $59.99, the Echo Dot gets an LED clock built into the side and keeps two colors options. The new device is available for preorder now.

This seems like a multi-tasking upgrade. Since the Echo Dot might be besides your bed on a nightstand, an alarm clock makes sense here. In our review of the third generation Echo Dot, we wrote about the improvements to sound and the updated design.

Echo Dot with Clock keeps all of this, but adds in a visual aid. It's likely that Amazon will open up this LED setup to other developers as well. For now it's an easy way to see the time and can be helpful for getting out of bed in the morning.

Beware: These will ship later this month, but the good news is you're scoring one for $20 off. And Dot with Clock really doesn't change much. It keeps the compact design with a solid speaker inside. In fact, we found that it was mostly distortion-free and was a great device for casual listening.
