    Pro Tool Reviews has a video of them. Looks like the light comes out in January and the rest come in June, including the new (brushless?) grinder. The drills seem like they’re just connected versions of what the HDS183/HDH183.

    After watching This Old House the other day. I can see were some of this Blue Tooth stuff will have it’s advantages. (I have always been skeptical of the value of it to some point) They showed some of the features on the Bosch Relaxx saw. And how with the bluetooth you could limit who uses the saw. This could be a great way to keep only the people you want to use your saw or tools able to do so.

    I think some of the Bluetooth connected stuff is a little gimmicky but some of it has its uses. This is only the beginning of this kind of tech. I am sure as time goes on we will find more and more uses for it.

    Aside from modifying the LED light and soft start, where is the practicality in this? IMHO, it just seems like another feature to jack the price up,

    Disabling it so the wrong people can’t use it, tracking, adjusting the kickback sensitivity, setting for things like using a tap or not worring about overtighting fasteners. I am sure they will find even more uses.

    Limiting access to a tool like the Reaxx is a huge step in the right direction. Training is necessary for all power tools and the ability to allow only those with training to use those tools completes the circle.

    Kudos to Bosch for this development.

    Man I am glad I don’t work on some of your jobsites. I haven’t ever felt the need to limit the use of my tools on site. We work with the same subs and they are pros who respect other peoples stuff. Still haven’t seen a valid reason for the gimmicky features of this or OneKey.

    Yeah maybe, but haven’t we been getting along just fine without Bluetooth tools?

    My thoughts exactly. I have no desire to lock tools.

    Maybe we can have this thread and the following one amalgamated?
