While we were still excited about Amazon buying iRobot, we just got some big news about brand-new Amazon devices.

The annual Amazon Fall Hardware Event went down on Sept. 27, 2022 introducing some stuff we’ve never seen before. From a Kindle with a stylus (say what?!) to a smart lamp that tracks your sleep, we have a lot of cool Amazon-exclusive gadgets to look forward to for the 2022 holiday shopping season. We’ve got details on release dates, prices, and what to expect.

Remember, if you’re in the market for one of these new gadgets, you can get free Amazon credit by trading in your old Amazon devices.

Some of these might be live on Amazon for their new Prime Early Access Sale, but if not, we should get a few before Amazon Black Friday deals are live.

Here are the new Amazon devices we saw in 2022:


1. Kindle Scribe, $339.99 – $369.99

Before the Fire Tablet, Amazon got into the electronics game with the Kindle e-reader. For 2022 they’ve released their first ever Kindle Paperwhite with a stylus (digital pen) called the Kindle Scribe.

You can buy the Scribe with either a Basic stylus or a Premium stylus:

Basic, $339.99

  • Stylus
  • Doesn’t need to get charged
  • Attaches to Scribe magnetically

Premium, $369.99

  • Stylus
  • Doesn’t need to get charged
  • Attaches to Scribe magnetically
  • Eraser button
  • Tool shortcut button

The Kindle Scribe lets you write in the margins on your ebooks, plus has options for writing notes, journaling, or even drawing. And you can import PDFs or Word Docs to write directly on those with the new Kindle.

Release Date: Nov. 30, 2022 (preorder on Amazon)

TIP: Amazon will give four free months of Kindle Unlimited to anyone who buys the new Kindle Scribe (even current Kindle Unlimited subscribers).


2. Amazon Astro, $999.99

Is Amazon Astro a handy home security device or a creepy Ring camera on wheels that’ll freak out your dog?

There have already been lots of opinions about the Astro — a smart robot with an integrated Ring camera that patrols your house and gives you live updates and views of what’s going on.

You can also tell it to deliver messages to someone in a specific room and the robot will go there and do it in Alexa’s voice or display it on the screen.

Don’t worry about it running into your pet. It detects things in the way and keeps a safe distance.

So far, you can only test the Amazon Astro by applying to their invite-only list. If you’re selected, you get to try out the Astro and get access to an introductory price of $999.99. Once it’s available to everyone (Amazon hasn’t announced when yet), the price will jump to $1,449.99.

Release Date: Available by invite-only

TIP: Amazon Astro comes with six free months of Ring Protect Pro.


3. Halo Rise, $139.99

The new Halo Rise alarm clock sounds like something straight out of a sci-fi movie (or a video game?). Amazon jumped into FitBit’s territory with the debut of the Halo fitness tracker line in 2020.

For 2022 we’re getting the Halo Rise, a nightstand alarm clock that observes your sleep habits through special sensors. Amazon says it will also detect if your room is too humid, hot, or bright — all factors that affect your sleep. The Rise works with the Halo app to suggest different ways to arrange your room to create an environment that gives you the best rest.

If you have an Echo, you can pair it with the Halo Rise and ask, “Alexa, how’d I sleep?” It’ll tell you if you snored, tossed and turned, or any other sleep behavior from the night.

Release Date: TBD

TIP: The Halo Rise comes with six free months of a Halo membership, and it’ll renew for $3.99/month if you don’t cancel it.


4. Fire TV Omni QLED Series, $799.99 – $1,099.99

Amazon announced a new Fire TV model that displays fine art or personal photos when you aren’t watching it. That’s something the Samsung Frame TV is famous for, but Amazon’s Fire TV Omni is almost half the price.

Here’s what we mean:

  • 65-inch: Fire TV Omni QLED Series, $799.99 vs Samsung Frame TV, $1,999.99
  • 75-inch: Fire TV Omni QLED Series, $1,099 vs Samsung Frame TV, $2,999.99

Another plus? The Fire TV Omni QLED Series comes with over 1,500 art pieces for free. (By comparison, the Samsung Frame has 2,000 works of art, but you have to pay a $5/month for a Samsung Art Store subscription).

Release Date: Oct. 27, 2022 (preorder on Amazon)



5. Echo Smart Speakers, $49.99 – $199

The 5th Gen Echo Dot, Dot with Clock, and Studio won’t look much different from the 4th Gen, but they’re getting some interior tech upgrades. Don’t worry about paying more for the 5th Gen speakers; the prices stay the same.

Echo Studio, $199

Amazon gave the Echo Studio a sharper 3D sound, deeper bass, and a new white color option called Glacier.

Release Date, Oct. 20, 2022 (preorder on Amazon)

Echo Dot, $49.99

Besides an upgraded sound system like the Studio, the Dot will get special sensors that can turn on your Alexa-enabled smart fans when the room gets too hot or too cold.

Release Date: Oct. 20, 2022 (preorder on Amazon)

Echo Dot with Clock, $59.99

The Echo Dot with Clock gets an upgraded sound system, and the latest generation shows more than just the time on the LED screen. The display shows you the weather, the song playing, and more. It also comes with the high-tech temperature sensors like the Dot.

Release Date: Oct. 20, 2022 (preorder on Amazon)


6. Echo Auto ($54.99)

Amazon’s Echo Auto debuted in 2018, giving the vast majority of cars Alexa-enabled voice controls. Now you can ask every vehicle, “Alexa, where’s the nearest gas station?” with the 2nd Gen Echo Auto releasing in late 2022.

Improvements include microphones that can hear you over loud music, noisy road sounds, and AC systems, a smaller overall design, and a new fabric protective covering.

The Echo Auto can now help you with car troubles with an added roadside assistance command. Just say “Alexa, Roadside Assistance” and Amazon will connect you with a local company that’ll help you. With new upgrades comes a higher price — $5 more than the original $49.99 Echo Auto.

Release Date: TBD


7. Fire TV Cube, $139.99

The Fire TV Cube — the Fire Stick’s bigger cousin — is going to be $20 more expensive than the most recent generations, but Amazon promises faster loading and buffering speeds. The box-shaped streaming device comes with a new fabric protective cover and a new HDMI port that’ll let you plug into your cable box — so you can control your TV and cable with the Fire TV Cube.

Release Date: Oct. 25, 2022 (preorder on Amazon)


8. Alexa Voice Remote Pro, $34.99

Chances are you’ve used the Alexa Voice Remote with your Fire Stick, Fire TV, or Fire TV Cube. There’s a new “Pro” version coming this year, and the most exciting feature is that it’s easy to find when you’ve misplaced it.

Now you can say “Alexa, find the remote” to your Echo devices and your Alexa Voice Remote Pro will start ringing so you can find it. It also automatically lights up so you can see it in the dark.

You can also use the Pro to control two other Alexa-enabled home devices, like turning off your lights or viewing your Ring camera. You can program two buttons to turn on/off your lights, set the alarm, and more.

The Pro will cost $34.99 — $5 more than the standard Alexa Voice Remote.

Release Date: Nov. 16, 2022 (preorder on Amazon)
