Futuristic Dads Unite: Gadgets N’ Gizmos for Father’s Day

Meredith Evans Meredith is a flutist and writer from Tucson, Ariz.


This Father’s Day, forget about ties and golf balls. Give your tech savvy Dad something he’ll really love – the latest and greatest tech gadget. From futuristic 4K TVs to new smartphones, make Dad the coolest guy on the block.

1. Race Harder

Athletic dads will love tracking their workout stats with the Garmin Forerunner 910XT (retails at $450.00), the ultimate GPS-enabled sports watch. From 5Ks to triathlons, the watch records every move Dad makes at one-second intervals, generating a precise workout map. Plus, the Garmin Forerunner synchs with foot pods for cadence recording, helping to pace Dad to his goal time.

2. Rock Out

Step aside, Bose. The M4U 2 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones (retail at $399), created by PSB Speakers, may very well be the best noise cancelling headphones on the market. PSB packed 40 years of award-winning acoustic design for sound that’s crisp, clear and almost as good as standing front-and-center at a U2 concert. The lightweight design folds in half for easy travel, perfect for busy dads on the go.

3. Stay in Touch

Wherever Dad travels, the Blackberry Z10 ($99 with two-year T-Mobile contract) makes it easy for you to stay in touch. BBM Video with screen share lets Dad talk face-to-face with his favorite kids (that’s you, of course) and quickly share photos. And with a touch screen keyboard that adapts to Dad’s writing style, you’ll finally be able to decipher his text messages.

4. See the Future

Watch the game like never before, thanks to the Toshiba 9 Series 4K TV (price tbd), a futuristic television debuting just in time for football season later this summer. At 84” and a native resolution of 3840 x 2160, Toshiba brings the big game right into Dad’s man cave, along with a web browser and new cloud TV service for on-demand services like Netflix. Pass the nachos, please!

5. Tee Off

Hit the links with Game Golf ($249), the most comprehensive system ever designed to seamlessly track and display Dad’s golf game in a dynamic, real-time interface. Game Golf uses GPS and NFC technology to track every ball putted and every club swung. He’ll love bragging about his hole-in-ones and competing against friends – no matter what course they’re playing. Now taking pre-orders.

6. Be Heard

Rock Dad’s world this Father’s Day with the Amplifiear ($24.99). This clever and affordable tech gadget projects an iPad’s sounds so Dad can actually hear music or movie dialogue without plugging in headphones. Featured in Forbes, the New York Times, and Cool Hunting, the Amplifier slips onto the corner of Dad’s iPad, reflecting and projecting sound from the iPad’s speakers.

7. Get Fit

No matter how old Dad gets, he still loves video games. With Wii Fit Plus ($99, includes balance board) and accessories, Dad can stay in shape and play a staring role in his favorite games. Duke it out in the ring with Wii boxing gloves by Everlast, snowboard down a mountain, or perfect his golf swing. And thanks to multi-player functionality, the whole family can get active together.
