Echo Loop: the ring connected to Alexa

This is probably the most intriguing object presented yesterday Amazon, although the glasses connected to Alexa Echo Frames are just as surprising.

Echo Loop: Alexa Ring or the connected ring

But what went through the mind of David Limp? This Amazon Devices Event 2019 is decidedly delusional. After presenting a Echo Flex, for an Echo Dot 3 with clock, for an echo 3 quite short (a third generation already!), a Echo Studio able to compete with the Apple HomePod or the Google Home Max (or Nest Max, frankly, we get lost in them ...), here is the great leader of devices Amazon reveals two objects as surprising as they are seductive: eyeglasses Alexa and connected ring.

In fact, the idea is unlikely to come from him, and when you think about it, this Alexa Named Ring Echo Loop is simply a brilliant idea. Admittedly, it is far from being as sparkling as a diamond, but we expected no less from the giant of the emerald city, who had the guts to dare to integrate a micro-speaker Echo in a size so small that it can be worn on the finger!

Yes, that's it: a Alexa Ring! Or, for those who are resistant to Shakespeare's language, a sort of digital signet ring with vocal assistants Alexa... Welcome to the 21st century! Connected via Bluetooth to your smartphone, this connected ring is surprisingly equipped with a loudspeaker and several microphones, unlike the Versa 2 from Fitbit.

According to The Verge, the loudspeaker is weak and the battery should hardly last " more than a day ". However, as with Echo buds, it can be used perfectly with the default voice assistant assigned to your smartphone, whether it isAlexa - it's better - or even Google Assistt, even the friend Siri who definitely looks more and more like the stuffing turkey!

An integral part of the "Day One" program, Echo Loop is restricted to the US market and available in limited quantities at $ 179,99 with presales at $ 129,99.

Fascinated by Alexa since the day I received it in beta test, I gradually became passionate about the subject, before deciding to go further by creating a site with Jean-Christophe. An activity that allows me to quench my thirst for new technologies and share my discoveries about the nicest of communities: Les Alexiens.
