Finding the best tech gifts for dad can be difficult — especially when you have to sort through all those “traditional” dad gifts out there that are just, well, boring. So this year, we’ve looked around for some special, interesting gifts for dad in a wide range of types and price
As a result, We’ve got a bunch of stuff for the Smart Home Guru: Amazon Echo Show 8, Anova Cooker and Lenovo Docked Tablets. For the Tech Enthusiast, Rocketbook, Wi-Fi 6 Netgear routers and digital canvases. And for Audiophile and Fitness Buff respectively, we have the Maxpro SmartConnect and best in class, Shure Aionic 50, among a load of other great gift ideas. Take a deeper look at some of these products below, enjoy!
The Smart Home Guru: Amazon Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen)
Is your dad constantly monitoring the home? Does he prefer turning on the lights from the touch of an app? If so, The Amazon Echo Show 8 might be the Father's Day gift for him! It offers a new 13-megapixel wide-angle camera that digitally pans and zooms during video calls. Along with a new octa-core processor that helps the display switch between apps faster and stereo speakers on board and the eponymous 8-inch HD screen with adaptive colour. He can even monitor the home with the new home monitoring system recently released with the echo show! With features like that, we doubt dad will be wanting for more soon.
The Audiophile: Shure AONIC 50
Audio specialist Shure has designed some of the best Bluetooth and pure analog headphones we’ve heard over the years and its products are used by artists ranging from Haim to Hozier. But why stop there?
With the Aonic 50s, Shure is embarking on an ambitious journey to break into two new markets at once. These headphones offer both Bluetooth wireless connectivity and have noise-cancelling built-in, the first time that either technology has featured in a pair of Shure over-ear headphones. The headset also features removable earpads, which will lengthen the lifespan of the headphones and are easy to clean. The noise-cancelling is excellent, as is functionality and comfort. If you’re looking for a premium pair of noise-cancelling headphones with some of Shure’s famous audio pedigree, the Aonic series is one of the best tech gifts you can get for dad!
