On sale for $45 (was $80), the Show 5 is Echo's smaller, sleeker model. Armed with a five-inch display, the Echo Show 5 is the perfect compact and lightweight companion to your nightstand. 

The display has the ability to bring all your smart devices together, while also giving you a visual companion to Amazon Alexa herself. It also doubles as a digital alarm clock. Amazon also has a wide range of personalized clock faces to choose from, so you can bring a little bit of your own yourself to this device.

“This is the best alarm clock I've ever had,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “The clock face is customizable and very easy to read from anywhere in the room. The screen has no distortion or discoloration from any angle...Perfect for checking the time in the middle of the night.”
