The Echo Dot has Alexa, Amazon's personal assistant, built right in too, so you can ask your device what the weather is outside, to set a kitchen timer, to play music and a ton more (your Alexa can even help you host during the holidays).
Connect with video calling and messaging - Call friends and family who have the Alexa app or an Echo device with a screen.
Amazon has released an Echo Dot (3rd Gen) with Clock so you can now see the time, temperature, or timer without having to pay the extra dollars to go for the Echo Show 5.

Having access to Alexa Skills mean you can turn your whole lights off (assuming your house is powered by smart lights like ours) while you are already on bed.
Alexa has skills - With tens of thousands of skills and counting, Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new skills like tracking fitness, playing games, and more. If you don't really need the clock, I'd say save some money and grab just the Echo Dot instead. You can think of it as the traditional Amazon Echo's mini-me, with pretty much the same capabilities, just smaller and more affordable.
