True to its word, Amazon has put the Echo Wall Clock back on sale just a few weeks after connectivity issues were discovered by early buyers.
The clock went on sale in January but was soon pulled after several users reported connectivity problems between it and Amazon's Echo smart speakers. The problems caused the clock to display the wrong time, and not manage countdown timers correctly.
Amazon pulled the clock from sale, but has now issued a software update. This is available now to any customers who kept hold of their wall clock, and new buyers should see the update install itself when they switch the device on for the first time.
This could have been an embarrassing situation for Amazon, who used the clock - along with an Alexa-connected microwave - to muscle its way further into the smart home space. Not only does the company produce smart speakers, but it clearly wants to bring Alexa to as many appliances - and as many rooms or as many homes - as possible.
