1) Build quality is appalling. It is flimsy and worse than a $2 shop wall clock. It does not even have an outer cover. The hands are exposed and fall off easily. Furthermore any bump/movement of the hands can damage it and make it s dysfunctional paperweight. Go figure?! 2) It is almost impossible to pair. I have tried continuously and cannot get it to pair properly to echo dot. If it disconnects (which it will) you have to go through it all over again. I am not alone, just do a web search. 3) it is a clock and a timer but not much else. Wait for another gen device that utilises possibilities better or it goes on sale for $5 - barely worth it even for that price.
