[CES 2022] Lenovo announces Smart Clock Essential and Ambient Light Dock


In 2019 Lenovo and Google teamed up for the first Lenovo Smart Clock. The Smart Clock was well-received but did have some bugs and issues coming out of the gate. Lenovo has since been refining the Smart Clock, and this year the latest version has been dubbed the Smart Clock Essential.
