Nothing’s more important than our health these days, and if your dad is taking active steps to be more conscious about it, then perhaps a Fitbit Sense is in order. This sleek smartwatch helps to monitor heart health, oxygen saturation, skin temperature and more. Besides a multitude of health features, the Fitbit Sense acts like a smartwatch, so you can take calls, receive notifications and even play music while you’re on the go.

Dads who enjoy the great outdoors can also make use of the watch’s built-in GPS to see their pace and distance, before continuing on the Fitbit app to track a map of their workout. Fancy a swim in the hot weather? The Fitbit Sense is water-resistant up to 50 meters.

For dads who take their music seriously, the Huawei FreeBuds 4i is a great gift option. The wireless earpieces feature customised components — including 10 mm large dynamic drivers to create a powerful bass performance and a “PEEK+PU” polymer composite diaphragm to generate a rich, dynamic response with plenty of audio details. The Huawei FreeBuds 4i also supports a noise-cancelling feature and fast charging — users can enjoy up to four hours of audio entertainment in just 10 minutes by the plug.

We don’t think there’s anything we love more than a dad making delicious dishes for his family — food, after all, is our favourite love language. To help him out with his hobby in the kitchen, we recommend the Panasonic Steam Double Heater Oven. The sleek machine is a handy microwave-grill-oven combi that features a steam oven, making it an integrated model at a great value.

See the world through the lens of your dad with the Leica Q2 Black, Adventure Set this Father’s Day. The 28mm Leica Q2 might not be as coveted as the other models from the brand because it’s a fixed-lens compact camera, but this is what makes it perfect for dads who want to up their photography game without all the bells and whistles of lens changes. The Leica Q2 also shoots stunning 4K video at 24 or 30 fps because of its impressive 47-megapixel sensor. This bundle comes with a Leica Q2 Handgrip, a Finger Loop for Handgrip, Thumb Support and a Display Protection Foil.

There no time like the present to update your dad’s work-from-home situation with a smart desk. Compared to manually cranked or spring-loaded desks, the Omnidesk Pro 2020 comes with four neat, programmable buttons that memorise specific heights so you can adjust between your settings with a single touch of a button. Besides that, you can also opt for an ergonomic curve on the table, which is said to align your arms to their natural positions while working, preventing backache after long hours at your desk.
