Those looking to forward to hanging up the Amazon Echo Wall Clock might have to wait a bit longer. The Alexa-powered Clock sold out after going on sale in December, and now Amazon has reportedly stopped selling it because of connectivity problems.
Amazon stopped selling the $30 Echo Wall Clock due to connectivity issues, according to The Wall Street Journal. Amazon’s listing for the Clock shows it as “currently unavailable.”
Amazon didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment, but told the Journal that its “working to improve the issues and will make it available again in the coming weeks.”
Like some customers, CNET’s Rich Brown had trouble after pairing the Clock with an Alexa speaker. The Clock kept time but wouldn’t show any timers from Alexa. After some trouble shooting and a fresh set of batteries, the Clock worked like it was supposed to. But as Brown says in CNET’s review, “no one wants to troubleshoot a clock.”
At the time, Amazon said it was “working to improve the connectivity for customers.” A spokesperson also offered a similar timeline — “available again in the coming weeks” — after the clock initially sold out.
