There’s no denying that modern-day dads are getting quite tech-savy. So fret not if Father’s Day is just around the corner, and you still haven’t had the time to find the right gift. While some love photography, others obsess over music, we even have some dad’s whipping up a mean curry once in a while. Whatever they’re loving at the moment, we figured their hobbies might make for unique Father’s Day tech gifts. Whether it’s a fitness smartwatch or something as simple as a coffee machine, here’s a wish list of gizmos we’ve been eyeing over the past couple of months that’d make for perfect Father’s Day tech gifts.
Dads love capturing beautiful and memorable moments on camera, and we’ve been witness to that all through our lives. While of course, a massive professional camera might be a fussy complication, FujiFilm’s X-T100 might be just right. It isn’t as complicated as a professional camera but is as efficient as one. Sporting a retro and stylish design, it allows you to compose your photographs clearly even in bright sunshine. Shooting in 4K with its 24.2 megapixel, it also boasts an APS-C sensor. Maybe it’s time your dad picks up a new hobby, if photography isn’t one already. For which, the Fujifilm X-T100 is a perfect beginner’s tool.

There’s no denying that the Apple Watch dynasty dominates the smartwatch sphere. But aside of the style factor, the Apple Watch Series 4 is a great tool of utility. Its ECG and heart rate scanners are by far the best and most accurate we’ve seen. The smartwatch is waterproof down to 50 meters while a barometric altimeter records changes in elevation, a coveted feature for hikers and mountaineers. There’s also a new competition mode for competing against friends and additional fitness modes that support yoga and hiking.

An essential for every dad to sleep better. Bose Sleepbuds are tiny, truly wireless earbuds that combine an ultra-comfortable design with soothing sounds to block, cover, and replace the most common noises that interfere with sleep. Bose’ Sleepbuds feature noise cancellation and a unique Stay Here + Sleep, with its ambient music sounds so you can get a restful snooze. They also act as an alarm and notification buzzer, for daytime indulgences with 16-hour charge. They feature new patented ear tips for a snug, soft, barely-felt fit, and can run for up to 16 hours. And they solve a problem for millions of people that’s vexed a multi-billion-dollar industry.

Who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee? Dads surely do, which is why we recommend the Aeropress Coffee Maker. This isn’t a blender or any type of electronic expresso machine, it’s simply a manual brewer that’ll allow you to brew your coffee exactly as you prefer. Add your coffee power and half a cup of water at 80 degrees and plunge through. With some milk, your dad can have a perfect cup of coffee just the way he likes it.

Nothing can beat the joy of reading be it a novel or an electric paperback. Amazon’s Kindle would be our favorite pick for this indulgence. Being the thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite ever, it comes with 32 GB of storage that’ll allow your dad to hoard thousands of books. With its new anti-glare display, creates the feel of a real newspaper yet, as a bonus being completely waterproof.
