We often see discounts on Amazon products — just check out these Amazon Echo deals — but it’s not often we see great products like the Echo Show discounted by as much as 50%. But right now, at Amazon, you can score the Echo Show 5. It’s down to $45 from its regular price of $90. So much more than just a smart alarm clock, the Echo Show 5 can reinvent how you manage your day and your home.
There are many features of the Amazon Echo Show 5 that our reviewers loved, but one that really stood out was its range of privacy settings. You can make sure that this device — which can help your run your home from wake up, through meals, to bedtime — is never spying on you or collecting your data. It’s just one of many ways the Amazon Echo 5 outmatches the competition.
This handy device can act as both an entertainment hub and smart hub — all conveniently, efficiently, and handsomely — within its 5.5-inch smart display. Think of the amount of time you’ve spent this year on video calls with friends, family, and colleagues; the Amazon Echo 5 makes those calls easier and more fun than ever (and unlike Facebook’s two-way screen, you don’t need specific accounts to use it). It’s a fun and easy way to connect, get work done, as well as manage your daily schedule. You can set alarms, and check in with daily news briefs, trailers, and other helpful content. Want to know the weather? Just ask.
The Amazon Echo Show 5 looks great, too. This version allows you to pick your own clock face so that you can match the décor or ambiance of your bedroom, kitchen, or wherever you place it as your command center. Another favorite feature — you can use your photos and videos as display, so the Echo Show 5 becomes a sophisticated digital picture frame as well.
Of course, it works with Alexa, making the Echo Show 5 a visual connection to your entire smart home. You can use the Echo Show 5 to play with the thermostat, control your smart TV, or manage your smart lighting system. But it can do way more than just that. Call up your favorite radio stations or podcasts, or do video calls with your friends for socially distanced drinks. And of course, you can use it to send videos and photos to friends and family.
Getting the Amazon Echo 5 for $45 off, or half price, is an amazing opportunity, even among the great Amazon Echo deals out there right now. You can score one for at Amazon. That’s a huge discount from its original price of $90. What are you waiting for?
