Google and Lenovo have once again teamed up to bring Google Assistant deeper into your life.

This time, it's a $79 Smart Alarm Clock, a small Google Assistant-enabled clock with a touchscreen display optimized for bedside tables. It's launching this spring. 

Though the form factor is similar to Lenovo's larger Smart Display, Google is billing the alarm clock as the first of a new category of devices: smart clocks.  That may sound like splitting hairs — larger displays also show the time, after all — but there are some meaningful differences that make the device worth paying attention to.
