Compared to older Ecovacs models, the N79S adds a Max Power function, which increases the suction by 50% when you need it. It also adds compatibility with Amazon's Alexa, which means if you connect it to an Echo Dot (opens in new tab) or something similar you can control the N79S with your voice.

The N79S has a three-stage cleaning system, which includes high-efficiency suction, a deep reach main brush, and wide-reach side brushes. The battery life lasts for just under two hours, and it will return to the docking station automatically when it runs low. It has sensors that help prevent collisions and falls. It comes with a one-year warranty, and users give it 4 stars based on 2,937 reviews (opens in new tab).
