    That's really neat! I've not got any Alexa devices but if I did, I'd for sure grab one of these.

      read the review below. Imagine a conversation with Alexa:
      hey Alexa, what's the time?
      Alexa: need to connect to the internet to tell.

      hey Alexa, connection fixed, can you tell me the time
      Alexa: are you blind dude? look at my clock

        Real handy for my FttN 1.3km away NBN…
        Me: Alexa, what time is it?
        Alexa: I'm having trouble connecting to the internet. It looks like a router problem, please try restarting it.

        Wife: Is the internet down?
        Me: FFS how many time have I told you to ask Alexa? (probably 25x)

              @raybies: It's the silly Lib/conservative approach to money management that people keep falling for. Save a few cents today, and lose a few dollars tomorrow. It's all short term benefit, no actual plans or thought beyond the next fiscal period.

              Just in the last few days it's been revealed that Pfizer approached us earlier than the gov had claimed, offering us as much vaccine as we wanted last July. And the gov “started nickel and diming on the costs” before going with the cheaper AZ, putting all eggs in one basket and dragging out covid as long as possible.
              Better money managers indeed.

              •  

                @crentist: Apparently there are also Liberal links to management of AZ too.

              And we have unaccountable politicians

              That's not true, every 3 or 4 years they get held accountable, it's just most Aussies think the incompetents they keep voting for is as good as it gets. Perhaps.. perhaps its the voters who make really bad choices ?

                I've been promoting direct democracy for 20yrs… hard selling the idea though, and there's only one party promoting it.
                Even making analogies with open source sw and participation TV, still doesn't convince people they're smart enough to make decisions for themselves.

    This product is absolute trash. I returned it after a few days of usage.

    **my whole house is setup with Alexa and Alexa enabled devices
    ***the clock itself failed multiple times to connect to AMAZON ECHO DEVICES
    ***there is no glass covering the front of this device, exposing the hands of the clock (which are fragile)
    ****this is not a bargain, even at half price

      Nice review, time too echo this one 👍😁

      • +4 votes

        I have 2 - one in the kitchen one on the deck with a device close to each.

        Have not had disconnection problems and I really like to use them - the visual countdown is good for the young children to get a concept of time. The design is also simple and stylish.

        Once it was hung on the wall we have only had to take it down to replace batteries and although there is no glass and the hands are fragile you really only have to touch it every 6 months.

        • +1 vote

          In those 6 months would you say you used the timer feature a lot or a little. Just wondering how big of a drain the lights are

          Wish there was away too light up where the hands are so you can see it in the dark

          • +2 votes

            @Lost-Sons of dallas: used the visual timer a lot -
            in the kitchen it is good to see how much longer the stuff in the oven needs (eg turn something with 10 minutes remaining/do I wait here and take it out straight away or go and do something else). We also use it for a visual timer for the children "you have 5 more minutes of playing then a shower - when the lights run out it is time to pack up"

            The one on the deck we use mostly as a clock but again a timer for the children "10 more minutes in the pool and then we hop out" or time to come inside.

            Probably wouldn't be using it as much without children but still handy for cooking.

      Thanks for stopping me from pulse buying this. If you have an echo device with a screen that displays a clock, why would you need this?

        For the wall….

        Wall vs desk.

        If you have a phone why need a clock

          What are people doing with their clocks that requires protection exactly? Serious question - you don't have to touch the clock except to change batteries is there something that I am not aware of that destroys clocks?

            @leyton01: dust and kids treating everything as projectiles

          • +1 vote

            @leyton01: Well dust is one. When you're wiping the dust off you have to be extra careful. There's more spots for dust to gather in too

            • +3 votes

              @Lost-Sons of dallas: dust is not something I had to consider for ours I suppose - all the horizontal surfaces (the top and inside bottom of the clock) are above eye line and you cant see. Might have to get on the step and have a look :)

              It sits above the shelf with our phone chargers and electronics so I suppose projectiles are more of a concern for those than a clock - not something we have had to deal with (yet).

              •  

                @leyton01: I'm thinking of getting one. I might glad wrap it as a 2 second fix but if it gets glarey or looks too ghetto ill cut a piece of clear plastic for it (like the stuff they use on blister packaging)

                •  

                  @Lost-Sons of dallas: at $24.50 it is probably worth a try - amazon's returns I have found to be painless.

                  for your Q above - I do not think there is a way to light up the clock in the dark - our kitchen is usually lit by enough light from other rooms.

      I love technology, but like you I really can’t see the point, it has to be close to a “real” echo device to work, can’t give out any sound, and setting multiple timers are hard to work out which is which.

      I doubt if it would even be a talking point for visitors, and looks like 4 batteries every 6 months or so, will mean it goes into a drawer fairly fast.

      Thanks op for the video link, it helped to make me realise how pointless it is.

      The lights go off in the room, the light s on the clock come on and then it starts counting down 30 seconds for you to switch it back on before alexa gets very very angry

    90 day warranty, that’s really poor.

    •  

      and invalid in Australia. You still have statutory warranty so don't worry.

      •  

        It says it’s Australia, not US.

        And a cheap clock would not have much of an extra stat warranty..

        •  

          I thought statutory warranty was always minimum two years?

          • +3 votes

            @Gumbootboy: Statutory warranty is "reasonable amount of time".

            It's funny though, cos saying 90 days warranty, is pretty much saying. We only expect this product to last for 90 days. so yeah, bugger that, even for the annoyance of getting it replaced.

              @ONEMariachi: From the Amazon Page

              Warranty and Service
              Echo Wall Clock is sold with a 90-Day Limited Warranty provided by the manufacturer. This Limited Warranty does not restrict or alter any non-excludable statutory consumer protections or rights you may have, including under the Australian Consumer Law. Use of Echo Wall Clock is subject to the terms found here.

            •  

              @ONEMariachi: huh. For some reason I thought it was always a minimum of 2 years. No idea why, given that doesn't appear to be the case.

        •  

          I bought one of the earliest models and Amazon replaced it at about the year and a half mark. The first ones that came to Australia auto-adjusted daylight savings time based on the pre-2009 changeover dates.

          these could look great with some backlighting!

    •  

      "The numbers on the dial are small punched holes". Great!!

      •  

        It actually looks fine on the wall. I have one on a bright white wall and looking at it right now, all the numbers are clearly visible - but it also opens up opportunities for backlighting it.

        For two fiddy, it's a lot more worth the risk than this overpriced-even-at-half-price Amazon clock. I'll admit I think that auto time setting on an analogue clock is pretty cool though.
