Gift Ideas for Dad: 6 Mobile Accessories He'll Love

If you are looking for the perfect tech gift to show Dad how much you appreciate him this year, then check out these six ideas sure to make him feel loved.

1. Let him record every adventure

GoPro Hero 4

How many times has Dad recorded your soccer games, plays or dance recitals? Sure, that video footage is chock full of precious family memories, but maybe your father would like something to record his own adventures. A GoPro camera such as the GoPro® HERO 4 Silver Edition captures stunning high resolution video, and Dad can even mount it on his helmet, bicycle, kayak or the dog.

2. Lock up the house

Kwikset Kevo

The Kwikset® Kevo™—available in Polished Brass, Venetian Bronze and Satin Nickel—turns your father’s compatible device into an electronic house key so he can lock and unlock the door remotely. This bad boy will help your dad quickly earn techie status with all his friends.

3. Help Dad get fit


Whether your father is a fitness fanatic or needs a (friendly) nudge toward the gym, something from the adidas miCoach collection could be a perfect fit this Father’s Day. He could use the adidas miCoach Heart Rate Monitor to measure heart rate and get tips for training at the right intensity. Or, if he’s trying to up his speed, the adidas miCoach Speed_Cell can help Dad get faster. The adidas miCoach Smart Run watch could become a staple of Dad’s wardrobe, too. With the Smart Run, he’ll track run stats, steps taken, heart rate and more, as well as receive personalized workout tips for reaching all his fitness goals.

4. Get him a pilot’s license

Parrot Drone

It is perhaps the Daddy of all Father’s Day gifts. Make his dream of being a pilot come true—well, almost. Grab some aviators and pair them with the Parrot® AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition, and he’ll be able to capture HD video and photos as he flies the quadcopter in the backyard, through the park or on your next family hike.

5. Let him take control of his mobile gaming

Mobile Gaming

Maybe your father likes to take a break from work and unwind with some video games. Turn Dad’s mobile gaming into a true gaming experience with the MOGA Ace™ Power controller. He can snap his mobile device into the console-like controller and race on the streets or battle his virtual enemies.

6. Spend money to help Dad save money

Belkin WeMo

How many times has your dad reminded you to turn off the lights when you leave a room? Now, he won’t have to say a word. With the Belkin WeMo Light Switch, your father can check the status of lights and turn them on and off with his mobile device. He can even program lights to turn on and off automatically. The Belkin WeMo Insight Switch will ultimately help Dad save some money on the monthly electricity bill, and you’ll show him that you really do care.

Show Dad how much you love him. Earn some major brownie points with these cool tech gift ideas.
