The Echo Wall Clock doesn't have Alexa built-in; instead, it connects to nearby Echo devices via Bluetooth to track timers, reminders and alarms, and keep your home in the correct timezone. Amazon sees this thing getting the most use in the kitchen, considering all the time-tracking that goes on during meal prep. It'll cost $30 when it starts shipping later this year.
The Echo Wall Clock operates a lot like the AmazonBasics Microwave, which Amazon also announced during today's Alexa event. Amazon announced a range of Echo-adjacent products, including smart plugs, high-end audio devices and an in-car voice module. However, a lot of the company's focus seems to be on the kitchen, where folks spend a lot of time with their hands busy (or covered in food), and voice commands make a lot of sense.
