Still trying to find the perfect Father’s Day gift? Check out our collection of tech gadgets every Father needs!
1. A Nice Pair Of Headphones
Dads love music, whether it’s classic rock, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, or classical. Status Audio’s headphones sound excellent, and they’re comfortable enough to wear all day.
So who is Status Audio? Well, it’s a US company playing the same game that many Chinese outfits have found profitable: selling directly to the consumer and thus cutting marketing and distribution costs to a minimum. The company’s founder is also its chief marketing officer, and its motto is “no logos, no celebrities, just sound.” True to its ideals, Status sells headphones that look perfectly anonymous.
2. A Fitness Tracker
If your dad is trying to get in better shape, get him a Fitbit Flex 2. It’s small but can track his calories burned and steps were taken. It’s also “swim proof” so he can track his activity at the pool or ocean this summer.
All of this data will be synced to his phone so he can track his progress over time. If you really want him to take this seriously, buy one for yourself and challenge him to some “weekend warrior” workout competitions. Just remember to let him win every once in a while.
3. A Bluetooth speaker
The UE Wonderboom delivers better bass response than your typical mini Bluetooth speaker — and it’s fully waterproof. The Wonderboom is compact, fully waterproof, plays very loud for its size with a good amount of bass for its small size. It also floats in water, is shock resistant and has decent battery life. You can pair two Wonderbooms together to augment the sound.
For those a dad who leads a combined techno and travel-driven lifestyle, Father’s Day is the perfect occasion to make his life a bit easier by giving him exactly what he needs, a dependable power bank. A power bank is one of the smartest gift ideas. Is your dad hooked to Pokémon yet? This power bank will help his battery life to last longer than ever – think of all that exercise!
Not all power banks are created equally, and neither are fathers’ requirements for an extra battery source. To choose from the popular power banks for sale, take a look at Dad’s mobile lifestyle, his level of mobile device usage (intensive, moderate, low), his need for flexibility, and even his personal style. A dad who uses his laptop for marketing presentations and whips out his cell phone for sales calls requires a different power bank from the one suitable for a father who uses his tablet only on weekends to access his cloud files.
5. A drone
As I get older, the phrase, “the only difference between men and boys is the size of their toys” is only becoming more accurate. If your dad has fond memories of getting a Hess truck on Christmas, he’ll flip for a drone.
We have a roundup of our favorites, but the cream of the crop, if you don’t care about taking 4K footage, is the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced. It’s a spendy device; if you’ve got a few siblings to help chip in, I doubt your dad would be anything less than impressed when he saw what you got him.
6. An e-reader
If your dad is an avid book reader, then there’s a low chance that he’ll ever give up his paperbacks and hardcovers completely. Still, for traveling or reading books he’s less serious about, a Kindle Paperwhite would make a fabulous gift.
It’s more expensive than the base Kindle, but has double the screen resolution and four back lights to cut down on eye strain and help your dad read in the dark.
It’s not easy picking out a gift for Dad, but you’ll definitely find some ideas in this roundup.
