With Father’s Day right around the corner, what better way to show your appreciation than some of the latest and greatest tech toys—that also don’t break the bank. Read on for some of our favorites here at ARRC.
UE Wonderboom – $99
Welcome to the latest wireless speaker from Ultimate Ears. It looks cool, sounds great and it even floats! Is Dad a fan of hanging by the pool during the summer? Get him a Wonderboom immediately.
Sony MDR-7506 – $100
If these 1990s-era headphones don’t give Dad some nostalgic feels, then we don’t know what will. The Sony MDR-7506 may be the best-sounding headphones you can get for under $100. Pick ‘em up and wrap ‘em up.
Kindle Paperwhite – $119 (but often discounted to $99)
Is Dad one of those “I-like-real-books” type of people? Well, Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite e-reader is as close to the real deal as you can get, with its fancy e-ink technology and sturdy frame. It’s a good choice if Dad is a bookworm who’ll be on the next episode of Hoarders if he buys anymore paper books.
Fitbit Flex 2 – $90
Nudging Dad into a healthier lifestyle without offending his sensitive soul is easy when you gift him the sleek Fitbit Flex 2. Having a fitness tracker helps keep Dad accountable, and you can even challenge him through the Fitbit app to make sure he’s staying on track.
Mophie PowerStation Plus – $60
For those Dads always on the go, the Mophie PowerStation Plus is an excellent idea. It’s an external battery charger with an integrated Lightning cable and a micro USB adapter so good ol’ Dad can charge a variety of devices on the fly and not have to worry about anything dying.
Air Hogs Ultimate Millennium Falcon Quad Drone – $80
Star Wars is always a safe choice if you don’t know what Dad may be interested in, right? He can channel his inner Han Solo with this Millennium Falcon drone and the family will appreciate its crash-friendly foam body. Just make sure to give it to him on a weekend so he can play with it all day and not miss work.
Skullcandy Grind Wireless – $65
The skull logo on these wireless headphones means Dad has to be semi-cool to pull them off, but they’re a steal at $65 and Skullcandy has always been a reputable brand. As long as Dad doesn’t headbang too hard to Metallica, these should survive for quite some time.
Plantronics BackBeat Fit – $80
Is Dad a runner? Or more accurately, does he want to look like a runner? The sporty BackBeat Fit wireless headphones may be just the ticket. With bright colors and the ability to leave them hanging around your neck when not using them, Dad can put on his gym clothes and run errands and fool everyone into thinking he just crushed a workout.
