Everything else with the Echo name attached
Echo Buds are Amazon’s answer to Apple AirPods, even though they look nothing alike. Instead of Siri, you get Alexa. Echo Buds also pack Bose active noise reduction (not noise cancellation) technology and cost roughly the same as Apple’s entry-level AirPods.
The Echo Wall Clock is like a regular wall clock, except this one connects to an Echo device and does a nice job displaying an analog timer.
And by invitation only…
Echo Frames aren’t for your pictures, they’re for your face. That’s right, Alexa is built right into stylish eyeglasses. They provide hands-free access to the voice assistant and are compatible with many prescription lenses. They can be yours, but only if Amazon invites you to buy them.
Amazon put a ring on it with its Echo Loop. Just talk to your ring like any normal person to set reminders, make calls and control your smart home devices. Like the Echo Frames, you have to request an invitation. Since this time we’re dealing with a ring, best to get down on one knee.
