It's old tech meets new tech.
The original Amazon Echo Smart Clock sports a sleek, techy aesthetic. But, according to The Verge, Citizen has released two new models that have a classier, on-brand appearance — and they're Amazon Alexa supported.
The Citizen Smart Clock includes a “Work with Alexa” program, which means the clocks have an Alexa-powered display that is only compatible with Echo devices.
The clocks come in wooden and metal frame styles – the metal retailing at $79.99 and the wooden at $89.99. Amazon’s Echo Wall Clock retails at a much lower price of $29.99 but Citizen’s weighty tag matches that of its other products.
This may not be the only crossover Amazon has in the clock-works. Filings from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have uncovered that a Mickey Mouse smart clock may be a work in progress as well.
