If you're on the market for a smart display, Amazon's latest Echo Show is currently marked down, selling for $210, which is $40 less than its traditional price. It's a great option to place calls, listen to music, watch content, and even have a handy helper in the kitchen while cooking.
Amazon is often regarded as one of the companies that democratized voice assistants and home automation, thanks to Alexa and its range of Echo devices. Today, the company's Echo Show smart displays let people control their home, video call loved ones, play content, and check their upcoming appointments a glance. These devices are designed to be placed on a flat surface, though, making them harder to use in some rooms. To solve this issue, Amazon is reportedly developing a new device that can be mounted on the wall.
Amazon has partnered up with Citizen a few times now, creating a range of products compatible with its Echo hardware. The first device to come from this partnership is an analog wall clock that can display timers created by Alexa. While unconventional, this is definitely a cool piece of tech, and it's on sale for $50 ($30 off) from Amazon right now.

I've delved into the depths of Prime Day to pull out a few of the better discounts for our readers on this side of the pond (the right side, in every sense).

At a private online stream yesterday, Amazon unveiled its new lineup of hardware products, and boy, did they really let it rip. There are a ton of new offerings coming up from several of their lines, including Echo, Fire TV, and Ring. There's the new spherical Echo, a Ring-connected car alarm, and even a flying security camera — a real wonderland of tech. If you're interested in Amazon's offerings, or even just want to see what they're up to, there's a treasure trove of information here.
In July, Google announced that smart home appliance makers would be able to publish Assistant routines featuring their own Actions and ones recommended from partner brands. Amazon seems to be raising that move with its own: user-shareable Alexa routines.
If you have an Echo speaker at home, you'll be happy to know you can now use your Alexa-enabled device to make and receive calls using your AT&T subscription. Once the feature is turned on, your speaker will be able to replace your phone, even if the latter is out of reach, turned off, or out of battery.
If the Amazon Echo is not powerful enough, you should consider the higher-end Echo Studio. It was unveiled in September and is Amazon's answer to the Google Home Max. It's currently down to just $170 and comes with a free Hue bulb, which represents a $60 discount over the traditional MSRP.
If you think smart speakers aren't discreet enough, mounting them directly on the wall is a good solution. Some accessories let you do that, but they're not necessarily ideal. Thankfully, Amazon has the solution with its Eco Flex wall-mountable smart speaker, which it announced back in September. The product normally sells for $25, but it's now down to just $17.50
