Father’s Day is coming up, and we all know how difficult it can be to find a gift for Dad.
For the techy fathers out there, we've got some options:
Mophie Juicepack Powerstation
This juice pack is perfect for keeping Dad’s smartphone powered up for using wilderness apps on family camping trips or for filming the entire dance recital on his smartphone.
The Mophie Juicepack is a powerful rechargeable external battery that can handle the battery needs of any iDevice including the iPad, as well as wide-range of USB-enabled devices.
It is designed to provide a high output of power that allows for rapid device charging.
Griffin Helo TC Helicopter
Dads like toys, too! The HELO TC is a touch-controlled helicopter you control with your smartphone or tablet.
You simply download the free app, load your device into HELO TC’s Flight Deck and you're ready to fly.
You can use the app to record and store up to three Flight Plans so you, or another pilot, can easily repeat a favorite flight pattern. Make up routes among the furniture, missions to fly, obstacles to avoid, goals to achieve, and replay them later with your friends.
Zepp GolfSense Sensor
Dad will rule the course with this real-time 3D golf swing analysis system.
The Zepp GolfSense system consists of a lightweight sensor that attaches to his golf glove along with a free mobile app. The sensor captures nearly 200 data points from every swing and sends the data to a mobile device.
Using the free GolfSense app, a 360-degree view of dad's swing is instantly available, as well as a deep analysis of the critical swing elements and recommendations for improving Dad’s slice.
iGrill by iDevices
Dad will proudly wear his title as grill master with this wireless meat thermometer. iGrill is an app-enabled wireless meat thermometer, allowing dad to monitor food from up to 200 feet away.
iGrill has dual temperature probe capability to monitor two different meats at once and also works as a stand-alone thermometer.
The iGrill app sends an alert to Dad's smart device when food is cooked to perfection.
