The Mi Smart Clock has a minimalist design with large bezels around the 3.97-inch screen. The device can answer voice commands from the Google Assistant and it also has Chromecast built-in. In addition, it can show the time, the weather forecast, a slide show of your photos and your calendar.

Furthermore, according to Xiaomi, the device also works as the focal point for operating your smart home. For example, you can consult video images from your security camera on the screen. Xiaomi comes further with a ‘Sunrise alarm’. This means that the screen lights up more and more before your alarm goes off so that you are awakened in a more natural way.
The Smart Clock from Xiaomi also has a built-in 1.5 inch speaker and two microphones that record your voice from a long distance. The whole concept sounds familiar, of course, because it is reminiscent of the concept of the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential.

The Mi Smart Clock, with a price of 49.99 euros, is available through MediaMarkt from mid-February. What do you think of Xiaomi’s smart clock? Let us know in the comments at the bottom of this article.
