Not sure what to get Dad for Father’s Day? These tech gifts are sure to please your father, whether or not he’s a tech fan.
Even if your dad is difficult to buy for, you’ll find a fun and useful gift in this list. Whether your budget is small or exceedingly generous, you’re bound to be inspired by these gift ideas for your dad.
You may even find a gift for yourself. You deserve a treat!
Running Belt for Phones
If your father is a runner but doesn’t want a phone bouncing around in his pocket, get him a running belt. This belt will keep his phone secure against his waist so he can listen to his favorite tunes while he exercises.
His phone can be nestled in the water-resistant pouch to protect it from rain or sweat. There is a second pocket to keep his credit card, ID, keys and/or power bar with him while he’s out and about.
This running belt from Govivo has a pouch large enough for big screen phones in thick cases and is available from Amazon. The Govivo belt is currently on sale for $16.97.
Mpow Bluetooth Receiver/Transmitter
If your dad likes to watch TV late at night (hey, sometimes those games go into triple overtime), you may struggle to sleep. The Mpow Bluetooth Receiver/Transmitter can take the sound of your TV and send it to Bluetooth headphones.
Instead of cranking up the volume and bothering others, you can use the Mpow as a Bluetooth transmitter to listen through Bluetooth headphones. Plug the Mpow into the TV, pair it with your headphones and listen as loud as you like while the rest of the house enjoys silence.
The Mpow also works as a Bluetooth receiver. Flip a switch on the device to change it from transmitting to receiving, then plug it into your home stereo to send tunes from your phone to your speakers.
No need to worry about having an outlet close by, the Mpow has a battery so you can use it on the go.
The Mpow Bluetooth Receiver/Transmitter is available from Amazon, currently on sale for $23.99.

Pourous Apple Watch Band
If your dad already has an Apple Watch, consider getting him a porous watch band for it. Using the Apple Watch as a fitness tracker means that he’s probably sweating when he wears it. A porous band makes wearing the watch more comfortable when you perspire.

Or you can get a porous band for his Apple Watch from a different manufacturer on Amazon. This band from Hailan comes in various colors with prices starting at $13.99. Hailan Watch Band on Amazon.
