Top 5 Tech Gifts for Dad
- Wearable Technology
If your father or your children’s dad doesn’t yet have a Fitbit, it’s time to get him one!
Janice and I love our Fitbit activity trackers. It still amazes me how these little devices can record, analyze and wirelessly sync all our health stats.
During the day, the Fitbit One and Fitbit Flex track steps taken, distance travelled, and calories burned. At night, they monitor the length and quality of your sleep cycles before waking you naturally with a gentle vibrating alarm.
Giving a Fitbit or another brand of activity tracker is a wonderful way to give the gift of wellness to your husband or your father.
- GoPro HERO4 Waterproof HD Sports & Helmet Camera
Every active dad wants a GoPro!
The GoPro HERO4 Silver is the first ever GoPro camera with built-in touch display.
It allows you to view, swipe or tap for quick playback or settings adjustments on the fly. The HERO4 also delivers high-quality video, including 4K15 and 1080p60 resolution video, and 12MP photos at a staggering 30 fps.
- Portable Speakers
Let Dad let loose to enjoy a good beat.
Bluetooth portable speakers are a perfect gift for any guy.
This UE MEGABOOM wireless Bluetooth speaker is waterproof, shockproof, and dirt-proof. It’s a rugged speaker made for beach days, pool parties, camping trips, and more.
It has dual passive radiators, performance drivers, and advanced digital signal processing to create powerful bass and rich balanced sound.
How cool would it be to give Dad a drone for Father’s Day?
The Traxxas Aton Quadcopter Drone with Camera Mount features three different flight modes to accommodate every pilot.
In Film Mode, you can easily capture beautiful photos and video. The Aton’s easy to use control system means no previous piloting experience is necessary.
The Aton’s Sport Mode allows it to easily soar the skies at full speed. Thanks to 6-axis flight stability, it’s both safe and easy to go all out with Aton’s Return to Home feature.
Aton’s Expert Mode is designed for skilled and experienced pilots. This mode unlocks Aton’s full flight potential.
- Noise Canceling Headphones
Whether Dad spends time traveling and wants quiet during a noisy flight or just wants to briefly escape the noise of kids bouncing off the walls, he’ll love noise canceling headphones.
A fabulous choice are these Bose Noise Canceling Headphones. (We sure wish we had these ourselves.)
