But there’s hope for your old man. Lavatools Javelin Pro Duo is an electric meat thermometer that can tell your pops the temperature of a cut of meat in 2 to 3 seconds, ensuring he won’t char dinner to a crisp ever again.

A backlit, automatic rotating display and motion sensor mean that you can turn on the Pro Duo by simply picking it up, and use it easily in either hand. And with a claimed 4,000 hours of battery life, you shouldn’t have to worry about changing any batteries. A magnet on the back means dad can attach the Duo to the fridge, so it’s always within arms reach.

My family bought my dad an Apple Watch Series 3, and he’s since become addicted to its fitness tracking features. Seriously, he’ll probably tell you about his daily exercise progress within 5 minutes of meeting him. It’s a real problem.

It’s a two-in-one package that provides audio that’s world’s better than you’ll get out of any TV on the market. And while the Smart Soundbar might not be able to match the quality of a Sonos Beam, it makes up for it in price and ease of use. Seriously, this thing is so easy to set up, your dad would have to actively try to make it more difficult.
