Amazon Echo does what you want when you want, and it does it in 360º omni-directional audio. Echo will get you ready in the morning by telling you the weather, traffic report or scores. If you are listening to your favorites on Pandora, Echo will hear your questions or commands from across the room and respond. What guy wouldn’t go for that?
What a companion! This watch tracks steps, distance, calories burned, floors climbed and how many minutes you were active. It also monitors heart rate and checks the intensity of the exercise. You can even record your workouts. If your Dad is already working out, thinking about working out, or needs an incentive to start working out, the cool and stylish Fitbit Blaze is the gift for him.
This very cute and clever play on the famous, The Godfather, logo will be a hit with any grandfather. Especially if he likes to pull the strings and spoil the grandkids…leaving the parents to look like tough mob bosses. It comes in a multitude of colors and sizes, and the cost is very “reasonable.”
Have you ever seen a tool make a grown man cry? (Barring the accidental thumb impact.) If you hand this to your father, you better hand him tissues, too. He may never actually use this functional hammer, but he will certainly keep it. And then you’re left with a problem. How will you ever top this wonderful, engraved hammer in the future? Eh, you’ll think of something.
If Dad likes to fix things around the house (even if he doesn’t), this magnetic wristband will make his work much easier. What a brilliant invention to keep screws, nuts, bolts, and small tools right where he knows where they are. And right where he needs them. No more looking for screws.
This fine timepiece by Seiko will keep you up to speed on the day, date, hours, minutes and seconds. It won’t tell you the weather in Japan or your current altitude. But its back-to-the basics face and capabilities, with its olive nylon strap, will make you look good—and rugged. It weights 8.8 oz, and is powered by the sun. It can go snorkeling with you or for a swim. It’s $95 on Amazon which is more than half off the list price.
If your dad’s a griller and he likes gadgets, then you gotta get him this! It’s preset with five meat types and four “doneness” levels. He can simply use the 15.9″ fork to safely check and master every piece of meat with ease. All the cooking temperatures are pre-set and the large LCD lets him know what’s going on inside without having to cut open the goods to have a peek. Delicious.
If Dad doesn’t have a Kindle, (or even if he does), it’s time to get the 10. It’s got the largest display yet and it’s the thinnest ever. It still delivers millions of movies, TV shows, songs, books, apps and games…perfect for the daily commute, quiet time in the cubicle, or kickin’ back in bed. Read, watch, listen, relax.
Does your dad have a bit of pirate in him? Or a sense of adventure? The black leather straps and the silver-plated skull portray a tough edge to the man who bears it on his wrist. This bracelet is great with jeans, khakis or especially business suits.
If your dad has an iPhone 6, this case is terrific. It’s designed to protect the 6 or 6s. It will also securely store a few credit and ID cards and up to four bills. It engineered with faux leather and an ultra-strong magnetic closure that also covers all four corners of the device. It’s durable and slim and can take an occasional fall while still protecting the contents, especially the phone.
If your dad likes to capture the action, but his action isn’t rock climbing or jumping out of airplanes, then this Smatree baseball cap is ideal for hands-free filming. It’s mounted for Go Pros that don’t need to attach to a helmet, a ski or a surfboard. The hat will let Dad go fishing or bowling, etc. as the Go Pro films. It also allows dads to film little leagues games and cheer without dropping a camera. The beak will not get in the way.

13. Bushnell Binoculars
A good pair of binoculars are a good gadget to have. For starters, if you can’t afford better than the cheap seats at the game, binoculars get you close to the action even if you’re in a different ZIP code. They’re also helpful hunters and golfers (yikes) and fisherman, especially on the sea. Bushnell binoculars are waterproof and built to last.
Can’t you see your father on a unicycle? It might seem like a gag gift, but it’s actually quite smart. Unicycles provide good exercise, perfected balance and a lot of enjoyment. They’re easy to store. They’re easy to transport. And they’re (not so) easy to ride. It takes practice. The more he practices, the better he’ll get and the more fun he’ll have.

That’s a great deal. This collection lets you experience Jason Bourne’s forgotten past and mind-numbing fight sequences.
