Amazon’s most popular speaker got a nice upgrade last year with the addition of an LED clock display, and right now, the online retailer has the fourth-generation Echo Dot discounted to just $44.99. That’s 25% off the regular price of $59.99 and the cheapest price we’ve seen for this new Echo Dot all year.
This snow globe-sized smart speaker displays the time and temperature through a glare-free LED display. Use it as your alarm clock, or pair it with your phone to play music through the speakers, which deliver surprisingly loud, vibrant sound.
The Echo Dot is equipped with Amazon Alexa; use your voice to ask Alexa to set an alarm, check the weather, read the news and more. You can also pair the Echo Dot with your smart home devices and use it as a smart hub to adjust thermostats, lock doors and turn off lights all with your voice.
What we like: the light sensor automatically adjusts the display’s brightness, depending on the time of day or night. It also functions like a regular alarm clock; tap the speaker to snooze or program it to play music to wake you up. Amazon says its improved privacy features include a microphone off button that electronically disconnects the mics when not in use.
This is an Amazon number one best-seller, and the new Echo Dot has a 4.8-star rating (out of five) from 53,000 reviewers online.
This deal gets you an Echo Dot (Fourth-Gen) With Clock for 25% off. At this price, it’s worth picking up a second Echo Dot to pair together for a rich, surround sound-style experience. Amazon also has the regular Echo Dot on sale for just $29.99 (a $10 discount).
Note: Amazon hasn’t listed the dates of this surprise sale so it could end anytime. Make sure to take advantage of the deal before it’s over. See full details on the Echo Dot sale here.
