Apart from the Mi 8 Lite and Mi 8 Pro announced yesterday, Xiaomi also announced a smart alarm clock. Xiaomi already has a bunch of alarm clocks but the Xiaoai Smart Alarm Clock has a number of features that set it apart from the rest.
The Xiaoai Smart Alarm Clock is practically a smart speaker with a large screen that only displays the time. Users can set up to 30 different alarms using just their voice and also snooze the alarm by voice. The clock can also take down up to 80 reminders, broadcast weather conditions, stock reports, news and provide answers to questions. Xiaomi says it can also recite poems, read stories and crack jokes.
The Xiaoai Smart Alarm Clock can also be used to control other Xiaomi smart products such as bulbs, lamps, smart kitchen equipment etc. It can also stream audio from up to 2000 different internet radio stations.
The alarm clock is white and has a bright display. There is a button at the top of the clock for disabling alarms or muting the microphone. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and connects via Wi-Fi (2.4GHz) and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. The clock measures 126.2 x 27 x 60.8 mm and weighs about 170g.
The Xiaoai Smart Alarm Clock is priced at ¥149 (~$22) and works with Android 4.2+ or iOS 8.0+ devices. It is already available for pre-order on Xiaomi’s official online store.
