«Google’s latest Nest Hub smart display tracks sleep with miniaturised radar without the user having to wear a bracelet or headband.

The revamped 7in Google Assistant smart display is being repositioned as a smart alarm clock and health-monitoring device for the bedroom.

The camera featured on the larger model has been left out, to protect privacy, and the device instead relies on Google’s Soli radar system to detect the presence of people and do all the things other smart displays can such as showing photos, the time, weather and other information. Users will be able to make hand gestures in the air in front of the display to control things such as playback and silencing alarms.»
