Top 5 tech gifts for dadsYou can get your dad stuff he'll hide in the garage or you can get him something he'll love.
Welcome to top 5, I'm Iyaz Akhtar, it's time to talk about dear old Dad and the day we celebrate him, but what do you get your Pop for Father's Day? Heck of course, here are the top 5 tech gifts for Dad. At number five the Cree Connected LED Smart Bulb, I know what your thinking Smart bulb. Yeah. Every dad wants you to turn off any excess lights that are on for no reason. Unless you work for the electric company. First up, this LED bulb costs only 15 dollars and uses only 11 watts. On top of that, it connects to the link hub Hub and the Phillips Hue Bridge so Dad can control the lights from his smartphone. Think of the power you've given Dad. At number four is the Automatic Smart Driving Assistant. Now, this little device connects to pretty much any car made after 1996. Think of this as a Fix-it for a car. Dad can get all kinds of information on how and where he's driving or how you are, if you borrow his car, and can find ways to save fuel It also tells dad what's wrong with his car when the check engine light turns on. Number 3's the PicoBrew Zymatic. Now what is it? It's a thing that helps you make bear at home, yeah. It's pretty pricey at nearly $2,000 but it's a great way for someone to get into the home brew habit. The PicoBrew Zymatic is a connected brewing device, which logs data on the process, and it can also link up with PicoBrew's website for new beer recipes. Hurray beer. Hurray that. At number two of controversial pick, a smartwatch. I pulled some of the [UNKNOWN] ads in the New York office, including myself And the majority of us said we'd like one as a gift. For the most part, we wouldn't buy ourselves one, but a free smartwatch, now that's a different thing. If you think Dad would like a smartwatch, first find out what kind of phone he's got. An Android Wear watch like the Moto 360 will work only with Android devices. Apple Watch works only with Apple devices, and the Pebble Steel, well, that works with everything. And the number one thing to get Dad is a TV. Yes a television. This year, we're picking the LG 55EC9300. [UNKNOWN] editor David Katzmaier said, this OLED tv has the best picture ever, with perfect black levels, and exceedingly bright whites. OLED for DAD Is A okay. I am so very sorry for that.
