If you like Amazon’s official Echo wall clock, but hate that dark dial design, consider the new Smart Clock of Citizen. Featured in a white-bottomed dial, silver bezel and wall-mounted design, a glass-covered design that works with Echo devices for easy user calls to Alexa Personal Assistant.

As a wall clock, you can easily install it on the walls of any room (such as the kitchen). Citizen Smart Clock also has 60 Blu-ray LEDs built in to visually interact when paired with compatible Echo devices such as speakers, such as setting the current timer.
Unfortunately, the Citizen Smart Clock uses a Type C (number two) battery and does not support external power supplies. Thanks to the Bluetooth connection, it cannot be placed more than 30 feet (about 10 meters) from the associated Echo device.
While some users complain that the metal border is fragile, it’s barely acceptable to look at the face, which is priced at just $80 (560 RMB). For people who often set timers through Alexa, Citizen Smart Clock is worth considering.
The company says the smart clock lasts up to a year and supports Day Light Savings auto-adjusting and automatic updates (assuming paired with the Echo smart speaker). The product is currently available on Amazon, and Prime subscribers can deliver it for free.
