Amazon has wrapped its 2019 hardware event where it announced 15 new products coming down the pipe, including new wireless earbuds, Alexa-enabled smart glasses, and its smallest Echo device: the Echo Flex. Bigger announcements like Amazon’s new smart ring the Echo Loop were complemented with smaller announcements like the incrementally updated Echo Dot smart speaker with its newly-integrated clock.

Other products mentioned include the Echo Show 8 smart display, the Echo Glow smart lamp for kids, the “All-New Eero” Wi-Fi system, the extremely compact outlet Echo Flex unit,  and the equally as small Ring indoor camera, which uses battery or a wall outlet like the Echo Flex for power.  However, in the list below, we have rounded up the best products to be announced at the event, and most of them are available for preorder right now.
