Amazon is competing against Apple & # 39; s AirPods with its own set of wireless earbuds. Aggressively priced and including technology designed to reduce ambient noise, the Echo Buds also have a passthrough mode (so you can hear what's happening on the street), two fixture drivers in each earpiece for quality sound, and the ability to not only Alexa, but also Siri or Google Assistant (depending on what your phone uses).

Echo Frames

One of the two products that can be considered more experimental than anything else, the Echo Frames are suitable for your prescription, but are only available by invitation (you can request an invitation on the product page). Unlike the infamous Google Glass, Echo Frames are designed to look like regular glasses and do not contain a camera or screen; the idea is to keep Alexa within reach and to call everywhere.

Price: $ 179.99


Echo Loop

Just like the Echo Frames, this smart ring is meant to keep Alexa with you wherever you are. Another invitation product, the Loop uses a button to give you access to your personal assistant and haptic technology to vibrate when you receive a call – and yes, you can hold the ring to your ear to receive and receive that call reply.
Availabilty: By invitation
Price: $ 129.99
