Found this and looks excellent, does all that an echo will apart from picking up your voice has to be activated by touch, great for the bedroom and adds to privacy as not always listening, good price at just over £30 shipped.

Reviews seem good as well, possible alternative to Echo dot etc

Wifi enabled and has built in battery so can be used around the house (battery lasts around 4 hours)

Fully compatble with Smart Home as well

Why? Alexa can set alarms just by asking

yeah but a Echo dot is £40+ and this has built in battery and also you can look at the time instead of asking lol

It's a deal of the day on Amazon for £7 more if you want to avoid waiting and want a better warranty.
There's a 15% discount code listed, but i don't think it'll work on a deal purchase.

I have this and it's rubbish. It's not voice activated. You have to press on phone or the clock to get it listen to you. Two apps to use..
Bought a Google mini and it's cheaper and lot better.

Great spot
PS - reviews are good on Amazon because seller gave this for free in exchange for a positive review. So it's all biased.

I have the item mate so know how it works
Looks a bit like an Aether cone speaker.

As a contrasting opinion I've got one and love it - whilst it's not voice activated it's always right by the bed so tapping it on the top to speak isn't an issue (I never use the app at all - that would be a right faff).

We've got other Alexa devices (Echo, Echo Show and a Dot) but this works great for what we wanted it for - I'm not sure I'd want it as my only Alexa device as I use them for controlling lights, TV etc where I do want it to be voice activated without having to touch to talk, but as a bedside clock that I can use for the odd Alexa interaction then it's spot on. The manufactures are pretty decent too and have pushed a few updates with new features since I've owned it.

Is it a good as a Spot for a bedroom clock? No, of course it's not but it's a fraction of the price at just over £30.

I'll probably replace it with a Spot if I find a decent deal on one (mainly because I think it looks a bit cheap and plasticy, probably because it is!) but for the price I've been happy with it.

Had one of these but sent it back it's so unreliable at it's most basic function of being an alarm clock.

Its supposed to have a backup feature where if it loses internet connection it defaults to a normal alarm tone (if using internet radio for alarm) but it just doesn't work.

Nice try but misses the mark

You can set it up from the website without installing the app, that's how I did mine.

Are people really worried about their Echo's listening to their private conversations?
