Whether you want to buy your first Alexa-powered device or have a house full of them, Prime Day is a great time to pick up the 4th gen Echo Dot with clock because it's on sale for just $32.99

This little ball of usefulness has all the features you'll find in the more pricey Echo devices, but it has one thing many others don't — an LED clock built in so you don't have to constantly ask Alexa what time it is.

The small LED display can also show your alarms and timers for a bit of extra functionality, and you can touch the top of it to snooze if you need just a few more minutes in bed.

Of course, it also can control your Alexa-compatible smart devices and tell jokes, answer your questions, or even give you the weather forecast if you ask for it, and its tiny size hides a surprisingly nice set of speakers if you want to listen to some music.

A real super ball
