Best Tech Gifts for Dads

Just For Fun

Dads are there through good times and bad, to help, support, feed, house, and protect us. If your father's a bit of a tech head, it can be tough to find really cool gifts for him if you aren't on top of the latest technology trends. Fathers Day is coming up soon, so keep yourself from being caught unprepared with these gifts for tech-savvy dads:

For Security-Conscious Dads

A father's home is his castle. Help your dad keep an eye on his domain with the Nest Cam IQ. It's a security camera capable of recording video at up to 1080p, works in night vision, and can send your dad an alert to your dad's phone when it detects movement. Plus, at less than $200, it won't break the bank. 

For “Don't Touch that Thermostat!” Dads

Did you have the kind of father who could seemingly materialize out of thin air when you went to adjust the heat? He might enjoy the Nest Learning Thermostat. It improves energy efficiency, works with Alexa for hands-free voice control, and has a light-up, easy-to-read display. Best of all, it's capable of learning a home's heating and cooling patterns and automatically adjust to meet the household's needs. At $217, it won't take long to pay for itself in energy savings.

For Photographer Dads

If your father has been getting into photography, enjoys traveling and snapping pics of his adventures, or would get a kick out of a drone, you can't go wrong with the DJI Spark. At just $389, it's a really nice little drone that packs more features than the average entry-level model, but at a much nicer price point than the professional models. It can capture 12MP photos or 1080p HD videos, and offers a full 16 minutes of flight time. 

For VR-curious Dads

If you're looking for a fun tech gift that is guaranteed to get a laugh, consider the Google Cardboard. Combined with a smartphone and any VR app, it allows users to step right into a fully immersive virtual world. At only $15, it's also about as budget-friendly as they come. With so many VR apps available, your dad's guaranteed to get hours of enjoyment. 

For Music-Loving Dads

Is your dad an audiophile? Is his collection of vintage LPs his most prized possession? If so, you might want to consider giving him the U-Turn Audio Orbit Plus turntable. It's a sleek, very stylish turntable with a built-in Pluto preamp, precision tonearm, adjustable counterweight, and Ortofon OM5E cartridge. It's eay to set up and use, and comes in a wide array of colors. At $379, it's a fraction of the price of audiophile turntables. 

For Forgetful Dads

Does your dad spend a lot of time looking for his keys, phone, or remote? He might get a lot of use out of the Tile Pro. This is a discreet system for keeping track of belongings—as long as the Tile can attach to them, you'll always know where they are. It pairs with the Tile app to track down your things, including allowing you to connect with other Tile users to help you find far away objects. It's only $59.99 regularly, which makes it a far more economical investment than replacing lost objects!

Every father is special, and no two have the exact same needs and interests. If you want to really wow your tech-loving dad this Fathers Day, these gifts are a great place to start. No matter whether your dad is a picture-snapping world traveler or a complete homebody, a would-be VR gamer or a music lover, there's a perfect present for him.
