But, it's always possible they might not have the right one for the task at hand. Get rid of that concern and simplify dad's screwdriving with the Bosch Go Smart Electric Screwdriver set. This smart, electric screwdriver senses applied pressure and starts spinning in the set direction using just one button, which should keep dad's wrists and arms from enduring a lot of unnecessary aches and pains.</p><p>Bosch sells the Go smart screwdriver in a useful bundle that includes a massive 33 unique bits of all shapes and sizes. While you shouldn't expect to repair a pair of glasses with this gadget, you'll definitely be able to open most anything in your home &mdash; including children's toys and electronics. When it comes to dads, it's tough to imagine a more universally useful gift than the Bosch Go Smart Screwdriver.</p></p><br/><br/><h3>A smart, learning thermostat to give dad complete control</h3><img src="https://static4.businessinsider.com/image/5fbe632050e71a00115574df-400-300/a-smart-learning-thermostat-to-give-dad-complete-control.jpg" alt="" /><p><h3>Google Nest Thermostat</h3><biembeddedobject id="42e1ba3d-1a7d-45bf-bcd1-ad2e3c308669" class="product mceNonEditable" style="width: 100%; height: 150%;">Product Embed: <br />Product Name: Google Nest Thermostat <br />Card Type: button <br />https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService'id=5fbd47e66e5e254e09281642&amp;type=button&amp;live=true <br />Width: 100% <br />Height: 150%</biembeddedobject><p>We all know how dad can get about the thermostat&hellip; Nest built the original smart thermostat, and since then the Nest Learning Thermostat has only gotten better under Google. The device is currently on its fourth generation, and offers deep integration with Google Assistant, plus it works with Alexa, too.</p><p>Using a Nest Thermostat may even save you money, thanks to the fact that the thermostat intelligently manages your home's temperature depending on whether the user is actually there.</p></p><br/><br/><h3>A brand-new retro game console for deeply nerdy dads</h3><img src="https://static1.businessinsider.com/image/5fa2d8091df1d50018218d2d-400-300/a-brand-new-retro-game-console-for-deeply-nerdy-dads.jpg" alt="" /><p><h3>TurboGrafx-16 Mini</h3><biembeddedobject id="bf71da64-b53b-4e47-9a5a-7c2840e5a499" class="product mceNonEditable" style="width: 100%; height: 150%;">Product Embed: <br />Product Name: TurboGrafx-16 Mini <br />Card Type: button <br />https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService'id=5fa2d81b2b29987734305d2e&amp;type=button&amp;live=true <br />Width: 100% <br />Height: 150%</biembeddedobject><p>For any dad that self-identifies as a nerd, the newest retro revival gaming console is bound to be their "Gift of the Year." The TurboGrafx-16 was a doomed console when it first left Japan for the US in 1987, seeing little traction and no sequels. That said, the device was innovative technologically in ways that Nintendo and Sega's consoles weren't, and featured a number of cult classic and critically-lauded games in several genres.</p><p>The TurboGrafx-16 Mini contains 57 hit retro games &mdash; more than any retro revival console to date &mdash; that play natively on an HDTV. Yes, this box includes 25 TurboGrafx-16 games pre-installed, but it also crams another 32 games from the PC Engine selection (as it was known in Japan) inside. That's double the amount of games included in some competing consoles, captured in a presentation that's oozing with nostalgia for gaming and Japanese culture nerds alike.</p></p><br/><br/><h3>The latest Apple Watch to keep dad solidly in the loop</h3><img src="https://static3.businessinsider.com/image/5f63706057b7da001ee122d8-400-300/the-latest-apple-watch-to-keep-dad-solidly-in-the-loop.jpg" alt="" /><p><h3>Apple Watch Series 6</h3><biembeddedobject id="dc4f191e-6fde-4f7a-8f1f-20d0d8b682a1" class="product mceNonEditable" style="width: 100%; height: 150%;">Product Embed: <br />Product Name: Apple Watch Series 6 <br />Card Type: button <br />https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService'id=5f6cfb0302495a07337f0624&amp;type=button&amp;live=true <br />Width: 100% <br />Height: 150%</biembeddedobject><p>The Apple Watch Series 6 is the absolute newest Apple Watch model, featuring new tools for health, like a blood oxygen sensor and on-demand electrocardiogram. This latter feature can be used to determine whether you may have atrial fibrillation &mdash; an irregular heartbeat that requires medical attention.</p><p>Sleep tracking is now more deeply supported by Apple Watch as well through a new app, though the Series 6 has the longest battery with which to support this feature. Apple's deep integration with the rest of its products is present here, of course. Finally, the always-on Retina display is now brighter than ever, for an added touch of premium quality for old pop.</p></p><br/><br/><h3>The newest tiny smart speaker from Amazon</h3><img src="https://static1.businessinsider.com/image/5fa2d50d69331a0011bc73de-400-300/the-newest-tiny-smart-speaker-from-amazon.jpg" alt="" /><p><h3>Amazon Echo Dot (4th Generation)</h3><biembeddedobject id="dfbf05a3-337f-43d4-8794-2cd6cd4ccfdf" class="product mceNonEditable" style="width: 100%; height: 150%;">Product Embed: <br />Product Name: Amazon All-New Echo Dot (4th Generation) <br />Card Type: button <br />https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService'id=5f6cf6111e1b353f05406e63&amp;type=button&amp;live=true <br />Width: 100% <br />Height: 150%</biembeddedobject><p>Amazon's newest smart speaker is naturally its most upgraded yet, but it's also the most original Echo design yet. The Echo Dot (4th Gen) is actually a sphere to enhance its three-dimensional audio capabilities. Smart devices can be touch-and-go in terms of interest during these "unprecedented times" with the notifications alone, but you can modify or even disable those while getting a gateway into smart home convenience.</p><p>Honestly, the Echo Dot could be an incredibly timely gift, with more folks stuck at home than ever, this could give dad's space some much-needed distraction and assistance. Even better is the new Alexa Guard feature, which allows the Echo Dot to use its microphone to detect audible threats within its space and alert dad to those via their smartphone. Bring the dad in your life into the modern era in a surprisingly affordable way.</p></p><br/><br/><h3>A kit of smart light bulbs to kickstart their smart home</h3><img src="https://static6.businessinsider.com/image/5ecfcd33988ee314af4c9742-400-300/a-kit-of-smart-light-bulbs-to-kickstart-their-smart-home.jpg" alt="" /><p><h3>Philips Hue Starter Kit</h3><biembeddedobject id="9192591b-41e0-4be8-8b6d-a066515ff882" class="product mceNonEditable" style="width: 100%; height: 150%;">Product Embed: <br />Product Name: Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance LED 4-Bulb Starter Kit <br />Card Type: button <br />https://produktor.businessinsider.com/productCardService'id=5dc342423afd374f102557f3&amp;type=button&amp;live=true <br />Width: 100% <br />Height: 150%</biembeddedobject><p>Philips has been building some of the most reliable, high-quality smart light bulbs for some time now, and the Philips Hue Starter Kit offers everything the dad in your life will need to get started with smart lighting.</p><p>Philips Hue smart bulbs are compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple's HomeKit, so you'll be able to use them in conjunction with the rest of your smart home devices.
