24 Tech Gifts Dad Really Wants for Father’s Day
We found the best tech gifts for Father’s Day to impress dads of all ages and stages, and if you’re really lucky, maybe he’ll share.
Yes, the lights are off in that room
Tell Dad he can stop wasting his personal energy wondering if the lights are still on when you leave the house. The Lutron Caseta Wireless Smart Lighting Dimmer Switch Starter Kit works with Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Assistant to give him control from his smartphone over the most contested energy drain in your collective lives—the lights. You’ll want to check out these other incredible Amazon products you’ll use every day while you’re at it.
If technology, motors, and yard work could combine
Oh wait, they can, and they did—the result is this Anker Roav 14-Inch Lithium-Ion Cordless Chainsaw. He’ll finally get all those ever-delayed yard projects checked off and love every second of it thanks to the cordless vroom-vroom action. His biggest issue will be dealing with jealous neighbors, and yours will be finding the right wrapping paper for a chainsaw.
He’ll never “die” again
If Dad is always on the verge of phone death, a new Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad 10W will definitely be one of his favorite tech gifts ever. It’ll quickly breathe new battery life into his overused Qi-enabled smartphone or tablet while taking up virtually no nightstand real estate at all. It’s a seamless accompaniment to some of the best sleep products on Amazon he’s already loving.
Everything will be within reach with this
If you’re on a budget but still want to really impress Dad this Father’s Day, the Wemo Mini Smart Plug is one of the best affordable tech gifts we can think of. He’ll be able to control whatever he plugs in from just about anywhere he has access to the Wemo phone app. He can turn the lamp he forgot about off from his morning commute, cancel a teenager’s video game plans, or even turn his holiday lights on at exactly the right moment. It’s up to him, and he’ll love you for it.
Time flies when you’re having tech-based fun
Upgrade his smartwatch to an iTouch Air 2 Smartwatch with interchangeable bands. It’s got all the style of other smartwatches on the market but comes in at about half the price, which means your spend-savvy brain will be a bonus gift for him this Father’s Day. The brand also offers Father’s Day-focused gift sets. Tell him to use his new Air 2 to measure his weight loss plan success in real time.
Beach-loving dads will go wild for this
The Scosche BoomBottle Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is everything the beach-loving dad in your life has ever wanted. It’s a wireless speaker with Bluetooth integration that features a built-in MagicMount for use with any iPhone or other smartphone. Better yet, we think it’s one of the handiest tech gifts for summer-ready dads thanks to the nifty (if not surprising) bottle opener. There’s no reason he shouldn’t have a cold brew without his favorite tunes.
A mini gift with major impact
If you’re really not sure what to get Dad but you know he loves all things tech, you can’t go wrong with a Google Home Mini. In fact, it pairs with, and even enhances, several of the other tech gifts in this guide, and is a breeze to set up and use. He can do everything from listening to his favorite music to asking exactly how long those steaks need on each side—all in real time. Weather, news, facts, and smarthome tech will all be within instant reach.
He’ll go fishing for the future
If he’s been known to take fairly competitive fishing trips with his buddies, he’ll love you a million times more than he already does when he unwraps this Eco Popper Live HD Video & Underwater Camera Lure. It’ll easily give him a leg up on the fish-catching competition and is by far the most futuristic advancement in the world of fishing. Tell him to read up on how long he can keep fish in the fridge after his first major catch.
He’ll be grateful you offered this protection
If he’s like the rest of us, he probably gets several hours of blue light-emitting screen time each day. Help protect his eyes with a new pair of Pixel Computer Glasses to help him keep the windows to his soul safe from damaging rays as he uses the windows to Bill Gates’ soul to get through his workday. They’re designed to reduce the symptoms of eye strain, dry eyes, and heading from viewing computers, iPads, smartphones, and TVs, and feature a non-Rx clear lens.
The kids will definitely want to steal this
If Dad is known to love old school printed photos but captures most of those beautiful family moments on his smartphone, he’ll obsess over a new Polaroid Mint Pocket Printer. It’s tiny enough to take just about anywhere, features built-in Bluetooth to connect easily to any Android or iOS device, and marries his love of vintage charm with modern tech wizardry.
Upgrade his kitchen technology
Welcome to the 21st Century, Dad. You’ll find yourself immersed in every flavor and food texture you could ever desire, due mostly to this incredibly cool Ninja Foodi Cooker. It steams, air fries, crisps, pressure cooks, and even dehydrates all in one countertop gadget. If he’s into tech gifts and delicious food, this is definitely what he wants for Father’s Day.
This will make him feel secure
Treat him to a Lockly Secure Pro with PIN Genie technology that features a unique randomized digital keypad every time the lock is approached. It’s compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, allowing you to check the status of your door as well as lock and unlock using simply your voice. That means he can let the kids in, lock the door when things seem uncertain, or even let a friendly neighbor in to walk the dog in while he’s at work. Did we mention it uses an advanced biometric 3D fingerprint sensor, too? The future is pretty cool.
His phone will finally be able to keep up
If Dad is known to drop, break, and crack his phone pretty regularly, we’re positive he needs a new Gear4 Platoon Case for his iPhone or Android smartphone. A Platoon case protects his phone from almost anything he can throw at it, or even if he throws the phone himself (hey, things happen). In fact, this phone case has been tested to withstand being dropped 20 feet, so you know it’s sturdy and he can finally take his phone out for long runs with Fido.
For the truest TV fans
He’ll be ecstatic when he opens an AccuVoice 201 Sound Bar TV Speaker by ZVOX. This normal-looking TV speaker is equipped with some surreal technology that helps drown out background noise while amplifying the voices of the characters he loves most. No more subtitles necessary for those truly epic Game of Thrones scenes.
Make him cooler…literally
Hot weather is around the corner, and we all know Dad hates wasting energy by running the air conditioning all day. Combine his love of all things technologically advanced and his deep appreciation for sensible spending with a new Lasko Wind Curve Tower Fan. It comes with a nifty remote control (another one to fight over, yay!) and takes up way less floor real estate than the old school one he’s been using for decades.
He’s been thinking of this for years
What lives at the intersection of cool technology and keeping his family safe? Glad you asked, because it’s this super cool Swann 4-Camera 8-Channel 1080p DVR Security System. He’ll feel like a pro when he monitors every angle of his castle from his phone, and you’ll love that he’s channeling all that energy into something positive. Just think of all the excitement the neighborhood will have when he catches a local bear in your garbage on camera thanks to night vision and heat sensing.
Give him balance
If he’s always heading to the gym, counting his macros, and trying to fit in a few extra reps, he’ll love a new Modern Movement M-Pad Balance Trainer. It combines the core and stability exercises he already loves with modern, tech-friendly features like a smartphone shelf so he can watch his favorite workout videos as he sweats. It also includes 13 training options and two games.
His commute will be way more fun
Tell him to grab a helmet, because he’s going to want to ride this Jetson Bolt Folding Electric Scooter with Twist Throttle everywhere. It’s a great upgrade from the personal scooter he was kicking to work, the park, and around the neighborhood with the kids, and we’re positive you’ll see him smiling from ear to ear like one of the kids.
Smile at this useful tech
The Oral-B Genius Pro 8000 Electric Toothbrush is one of the tech gifts he never knew he needed, because it does all the normal things he’d expect a high-end toothbrush to do, but with the added bonus of syncing with his smartphone to help monitor how he’s brushing and just how well he’s maintaining the smile you love so much. There’s even visual coaching to help reach his max smile potential.
Nomad dads need this
If there’s one thing he’ll definitely pack for every long trip, flight, and adventure, it’s definitely the Fuse Chicken Universal Travel Charger. It’s an all-in-one world charger, power bank, and wireless charger all rolled into one pocket-friendly device. He’ll love the 10W fast charge and adapters for the United States, European Union, United Kingdom, and Australia.
Fun technology to improve his wardrobe
He won’t need to worry about crinkled work shirts or creased blazers after you give him a fun-to-use Steamery Cirrus No. 2 Steamer. It’s a handheld wand-like steaming gun that makes perfecting his clothes a total cinch, and fun too.
Espresso your love
If he’s known to rely on his favorite morning caffeine fix, give him this ultra-cool barista-quality Brim 19-Bar Espresso Maker. He can make the perfect espresso drinks with the beans he brought back from his last Jamaican vacation, and you can savor the spoils.
Cleaner water anywhere
He’ll drink up the goodness of the Aquasana Clean Water Machine. It’s great for home, his office, or even his corner of the gym. It reduces 96 percent of 77 harmful contaminants including lead, mercury, asbestos, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, chlorine, and more, and reminds him to be thoughtful about what he’s putting in his body.
