Amazon Alexa and the Echo Wall Clock can change how you use timers forever. With a few words like "Alexa, countdown two minutes", you'll be set and you might just end up using it for anything and everything. Whether you need a reminder when dinner's ready, when your break is up, or when to let a little one out of their timeout corner. Now that the Amazon Echo Wall Clock is on sale today for $24.99, nearly its lowest price ever, you should consider grabbing one for your home. This clock normally sells for $30 and in addition to showing you the actual time in classic analog fashion, it also displays your Alexa countdowns using LED lights all along its edges.

The Echo Wall Clock syncs with your Amazon Echo device for voice control. Set a timer by saying "Alexa, set a 10-minute timer" and you'll be able to watch it count down on the clock via LED lights on the edges.

Alexa's timers work great in the kitchen when you need to know how long something's been simmering, how long you've been stirring, or any number of other things. You'll be able to see exactly how long you have and coordinate all the different parts of the meal. The clock also has the benefit of automatically adjusting based on Daylight Savings Time, which is unusual for an analog clock and a great little feature. It's not the smartest of smart home devices and needs a separate Alexa device like the 3rd-gen Echo Dot for the setting of timers, but if you're already in the Amazon ecosystem it's a simple, nifty addition.

Plus, it has such a simple, elegant design you can put it just about anywhere. Just keep it within Bluetooth range (about 30 feet) of your Alexa device. It has a 10-inch diameter and the 60 LEDs can display one or multiple timers. The clock also comes with mounting hardware and the four AA batteries needed to operate it. If you're still wondering whether or not you should get this, we've got the answer for you.
