Meet the CoWatch, the world’s first Amazon Alexa-integrated smartwatch, to help break the habit of constantly checking a screen for updates. Now, users can ask for the latest weather reports, check the time, and set reminders with their voice and Alexa.
We announced our new Amazon Dash Replenishment device wizard—an easy-to-use quick-start wizard for developers to help you configure your device or service and enable it to place orders from Amazon.
