A full-on smart display is overkill as a nightstand alarm clock replacement for most people. But that’s why Lenovo’s Smart Clock is great option: The 4-inch color display gives the basics (time, weather), and the unit doubles as a fairly capable Google Assistant and Bluetooth speaker, too. There’s no camera, which makes a lot of folks more comfortable bringing it into the bedroom. And right now, the Lenovo Smart Clock is on sale at Best Buy for $35. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen for this model.

Yes, there’s a second-generation Smart Clock that includes a wireless charging pad. But that will cost you $90. This model, meanwhile, still gets you a USB port in the back, so you can connect your phone directly (or bring your own wireless charging plate for good measure). And at $35, that’s just $5 more than the step-down Smart Clock Essential — with a black and white screen — is selling at Best Buy today.
