“What should I get for dad this year? Another tie? More socks?” Do you feel like you’re running out of ideas, while your dad is running out of drawer space? Don’t worry - we got your back and made a list of tech-oriented items that are perfect for any father!
Garmin nüvi 65LMT - $199.99
If there's one thing fathers have in common, it's that none of them like to ask for directions or admit that they don't know where they're headed. This GPS navigation system offers a 6 inch touchscreen display with "pinch-and-zoom" capabilities. It also features lane assist that will clearly indicate the proper lanes to drive in, spoken turn-by-turn directions, and a lifetime of the latest map updates. With the Garmin nüvi 65LMT, dad will never get lost again.
Tile - $19.99+
Staying on the topic of getting lost, Tile is the perfect product for the dad who is always misplacing any belongings. Whether it's his keys, wallet, briefcase, or favorite #1 dad mug that always run away, this product allows him to keep track of all of those things by simply attaching or dropping a Tile into those items. As of now Tile is only compatible with iOS products, so Android dads are out of luck - just try not to lose anything in the mean time.
Samsung Gear 2 - $299.00
In case your dad isn't an iOS user, then hopefully he's a Samsung owner so you give his watch collection a makeover with the Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch. It has a lot of awesome features like a built-in camera to capture spontaneous moments, a fitness monitor to keep dad in shape, and seamless connectedness with his other Samsung Galaxy products - and it can also help locate his Samsung Galaxy devices if he does happen to lose it.
Sonos Play:1/Play:3/Play:5 Speakers - $199/$299/$399
These Sonos Play speakers are a great addition to any home if your dad loves to listen to his music out loud. They'll allow him to wirelessly control and stream his music library or use other music platforms like Spotify, Pandora, or Songza. It's also really simple to set up and install.
Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 - $289.00
This is perfect toy to help dad feel like a kid again. The Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is a quadricopter that is controlled by mobile iOS or Android devices. It comes equipped with a built-in 720p HD camera that streams live video directly to you while flying it! This quadricopter can also be piloted indoors or outdoors so dad can always have fun.
