Father’s Day is a time to honor the connections you have with all the awesome dads in your life. So why not opt for a tech accessory that helps them stay better connected to the things they already love doing? To help you hone in on that perfect gift, we’ve partnered with Verizon to highlight five awesome tech-cessories that Dad will actually be excited to use every day.
1. For Dads On The Go: A Small And Mighty Portable Charger
A portable charger can help ensure Dad will never be stuck with a dead smartphone, tablet, or other favorite USB device. The mophie powerstation 10000 USB-C is small enough to carry in his pocket but strong enough to power two devices at once. And the 10,000 mAh external battery adds up to 48 hours of additional battery life, ensuring that Dad never misses out on the important stuff.
2. For The King Of The Castle: A Personal Assistant
A dad who reigns over the household (or thinks he does) can control his kingdom with the help of an interactive assistant. Google Home will help Dad control smart home devices like the Nest thermostat or Chromecast™, and he’ll love being able to summon news, weather, sports and music with simple voice commands. The Google Home’s HiFi sound quality and far-field voice recognition can differentiate Dad’s voice from others in the household, making it hard for him not to feel like royalty.
3. For Dads Who Want A Soundtrack To Their Life: A Rugged Portable Speaker
Dad can take his favorite tunes from camping to the beach and beyond with the Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker II. Protected by silicon housing and rated IPX4 water resistant, this is a great outdoor speaker for its rugged durability. Whether he’s relaxing in the hammock or pitching a tent, the built-in microphone means Dad can take calls or access Siri or Google Now as easily as queuing up his favorite classic rock!
4. For Sporty Dads: A Wearable Fitness Tracker
Maybe your dad is a health nut, or maybe he’s just trying to fight dad bod — either way, the Fitbit Charge 2 makes achieving a healthy lifestyle simple, intuitive and fun. The Charge 2 will help Dad keep all his health goals top of mind with a wristband display plus Bluetooth® pairing to the Fitbit app. The Charge 2 goes beyond basic heart rate and fitness tracking with a personalized cardio fitness score, guided breathing sessions, and automatic multi-sport tracking. And PurePulse™ heart-rate monitoring technology gives Dad detailed insights into maximizing heart rate zones for making his workouts more effective. Just watch out: next year you might have trouble keeping up with your buff dad!
5. For Dads Who Love An Epic Dinner Party: A Crowd-Pleasing Speaker
Is your dad known for his backyard barbeques? Gift him a portable speaker like the UE BOOM 2 to level up his grill game. Lightweight and boasting 360-degree sound, the BOOM 2 features an extended Bluetooth range and a waterproof design. Dad can even start a block party by allowing up to three friends to connect to the speaker. And the BOOM 2’s 15-hour rechargeable battery will allow Dad to break out those infamous dance moves all night long!
