The second generation of the Nest learning thermostat represents significant progress. It has all the well thought-out features of the first generation product pooled into a significantly sleeker, more elegant form. A new, custom-made sensor screen results in a continuous, clean front that catches the attention. The solid stainless steel ring, for the temperature and user interface controls, is particularly striking.

Statement by the jury

»The new version of this innovative thermostat that automatically regulates room temperatures has been optimised in form and design and is set to do its job in a sovereign way, just like its predecessor.«
