Amazon also teased two more products in the pipeline: Echo Frames, prescription smart glasses with Amazon Alexa inside, and Echo Loop, a smart ring. The LED display automatically adjusts based on the brightness of the room, so you can easily see the time but it won't dazzle you. The Smart Oven starts at $249 and comes with an Echo Dot smart speaker.

The wearable is equipped with two microphones, a piezo haptic that vibrates when you receive notifications or a phone call and the smallest speaker ever on an Echo device.

Amazon said you can also tap the top of the new Echo Dot with Clock to snooze the alarm for a few more minutes of sleep. Available for pre-order on Amazon, the Echo Buds provide hands-free access to Alexa, and support access to Siri and Google Assistant as well.

The company unveiled a new Echo Show speaker with an 8-inch screen, adding to a line that already includes 5-inch and 10-inch displays. The company has invested heavily in finding ways to improve healthcare for its own employees - first through a joint venture called Haven and most recently with Amazon Care, an on-demand primary care program for employees that was announced this week. And Amazon hopes to entice them with a sub-$200 price tag; the Echo Studio is available for pre-order now for $199; it arrives November 7.

It can then be used to put queries to the virtual assistant, and Amazon has also included a USB port so it can be used to charge a smartphone.

The Foreign Secretary, however, did not confirm if trade-related announcements would be made by Modi and Trump at the event. India imposed higher tariffs on nearly 30 American products in response to Trump's decision to end trade concessions.


It features a 5.25-inch woofer, 1-inch tweeter and three 2-inch midrange speakers to deliver dynamic, powerful playback. According to data from tech market researcher Canalys, companies including Amazon, Google, and Baidu shipped 26.1 million smart speakers in the second quarter of this year.

Also, a controllable Glade Plugin accessory would be nice.

Google's $130 (£105) Home speaker is triggered by the phrase "Hey Google" while Amazon's Echo uses "Alexa".

Like the Echo Frames, it will be available via invite only and is priced at $129.99. Of course, it also has Alexa on board for that smart control jazz. You can apply for an invitation to buy now, and they'll be shipping later in the year.

We also saw Echo Glow, a multi-colour smart lamp that pairs with Alexa ($29.99), and a Smart Oven, combining a microwave, convection oven, air fryer and food warmer into one neat device.
