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.
