The difference this time around is that Currys isn't out on its own in terms of price. You can also get the device at Very and direct from Lenovo for £24.99.

The Smart Clock Essential makes for a perfect bedside alarm clock. Its 4in LCD display can show the time, weather and upcoming alarms, while Google Assistant integration allows you to stream music, radio and podcasts hands-free. The sleek fabric design also includes a handy night light and USB-A port for charging other devices, while the microphone can be physically disabled when not in use. 

It's starting price of £49.99 put it in line with most entry-level smart speakers, but this great deal mirrors what we've seen with the new Amazon Echo Dot (£28.99) and Google's latest Nest Mini (£24).

Get this Lenovo Smart Clock Essential deal from Currys now. If you'd prefer, it's also available from Very and Lenovo instead.
