VOBOT Smart Alarm Clock, Brilliant until it went wrong

Wonderful item, responds very well. I asked for the news and it straight away gave me the latest news and weather update. Displays time and date clearly. The design is great it will go with any furniture and very eye catchy. I say it is very useful for early morning workers. Reads out information very clearly. I enjoy the rose gold colour trim it has on the edge. Downloadable vobot app makes it more easy to operate vobot. It is a futuristic product and very much recommended to buy.

I have a couple of echos and the vobot is a nice little addition for the bedroom. Only had it a few hours and think it’s great.

I have been using the vobot alarm clock for a couple of weeks now and very impressed. I have a few ‘features’ i would like to see added which i will explain at the end. The contents of the box are: vobot smart alarm clock; welcome guide; usb charging lead. Just take note this does not include a charger so if you do not have a usb charger (5v / 1. 5-2a), you will need to purchase one separately. The vobot is very easy to set up, details provided in the welcome guide. I took my vobot on holiday and set it up on a local wifi repeater very easily. Remember to setup your location on the app to ensure you get local stations and information. If you take your vobot away you can decide whether to keep the same location or setup a new location for where you are staying, most important to change location if you have taken the vobot abroad as you need to set to the local time. In use there are a number of settings for the display, i have set mine for auto brightness and to display time and battery options.

“Smart Alarm clock with Alexa.
, Brilliant vobot
, Interesting gadget

A great idea for an alarm clock but not the best quality. The speaker breaks up a bit when playing even quiet sounds, it needs rubber feet because it slides around most surfaces, and the touch sensitive button seems over sensitive sometimes and unresponsive at other times. But even with these failings it’s still a fun gadget that’s almost spot on.

Works exactly like an echo device except for wake up is via a button rather than voice. I had mine set to show day, date, time, weather and temperature (fed from the internet – not internal. ) auto dimming at night, perfect alarm clock with buzzer or internet radio. Much cheaper than an echo spot (which i also have) because of the mono dot-matrix screen. About three weeks ago it suddenly started saying the weather was sunny and 27 degrees c (it was actually raining or snowing and around zero degrees). I have contacted vobot support several times with zero response. It is only 6 months old so i am thinking about sending it back to amazon. It is still showing sunny 27 degrees.

Good alarm clock good gadget and works well with my amazon dotthanks paul.

Very good but needs a little bit more smarter for mewould love to be able to set more than one alarm, one for week days one for the weekend otherwise recommended, but keeping a eye out for the spot when it’s release in uk.

Found out about this product on the net , when first released it wasn’t available in the uk so my sister-in-law in america bought it for me, it’s greatfor it’s size it has decent sound for a clock/alarm and you can choose any radio stream as wake up. Touch the top and you have access to alexa function weather etc. I love being able to touch after alarm goes off and say switch the kettle on (got a wemo switch) then go to shower without going to the kitchen first. I thought being not always ‘awake ‘ would be a drawback but have not found it to be an issue. If you need a display clock in you bedroom this is the product if i wake in the night i look at the clock with a dot i’d wake the wife when asking it what time it is (not a good idea).

So it took me a grand total of 5 minutes from opening it to having it running and connected to alexa services. Seems a nice little thing, and a bargain at the price on the lightning deal. The speaker doesn’t seem quite as good as a dot, even if it’s rated to be louder. It seems like you are meant to put your whole hand over the button at the top, rather than press it with your finger. An interesting alternative to a dot, and since i bought it as a bedside clock/radio, it looks like it’ll do the job nicely. There is a bit of a flicker on the display that i’ve noticed, and i hope it’s not annoying at night.

This is far more than a clock alarm in the right hands, semi voice controlled you need to touch the sensor on top and then talk however, this is nice as it is not always listening and popping up like alexa can. The sleeping are cute, the setting time, the wife etc all a piece of cake. I know my alexa does most things like it but the visiual clock for an elderly parent is far better it. I would recommend this for elderly parents , grandparents etc. As they would prefer a clock. Quality of sound is quite nice, low bass which again a bonus for elderly. It is also small , thus takes up little space on a cabinet.

I am very pleased with this product vobot a good alarm clock as well as working with alexa.

Alright product not worth the price the speakers lacking. Wish i’d hung on for the echo spot.

What‘s an amazing, tiny, smart clock as well as a cute friend. This alarm is initialised with amazon alexa technology. You could set several alarms in next 24 hours, search weather, add items in your amazon shopping list, listen to bbc radios, kindle books, music. Alexa is so funny and when you feel bored, you could talk to herthe only disadvantage is that you must charge it for a long time. It will be perfect if this problem is addressed.

Great gadget once you get it set up works well.

This product is really good, you can talk with it, you let it play some music, and you can consult the local weather, the most important, you can set the alarm by you voice. Besides, you can take it with you at least outside of your wi-fi range because you can connect it with your phone hotspot. And it’s not quite bigger so i can take it to anywhere in my home. So i definitely recommend this for everyone. If you get one play with it and enjoy lots of fun.

Brilliant gadget and quick delivery.

It was very poor with voice command and the touch to activate was counter to alexa convenience.

Really great product does everything that alexa does.

  1. Battery lasts for about 4 hours,before you need to recharge it, it doesn’t even have a charger, so how’s this an alarm clock?. Battery runs out clock goes off alarm fails to come on. Ah well, thank god for my echo.

    Great idea, easy to set up and add routines and alarms etc. But returned due to the touch sensitive button on the top to activate/wake or deactivate alarm was useless, hardly ever worked so sent it back. Now have a amazon spot in its place.
