5 gadgets for dad

Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex

Father's Day is in less than two weeks, but there's still time to snag a gift for your dad. If you're strapped for time, a video game, especially a digital copy, makes perfect sense. Diablo IV, for one, may make him feel a bit nostalgic. The new Zelda is another excellent choice. But if he's not a gamer, how about gadgets that will make his life easier or more comfortable? Here are five gadgets to get for the man of the house.

Jabra's premium Evolve2 65 Flex (S$518) not only offers superb call quality, it sounds good enough to replace your usual headphones for music. It's also very comfortable, and folds up into a compact form that fits nicely into the included carry pouch. Definitely the best gift to get for busy dads that are always dialing in for calls and meetings.

If he uses an Android phone, especially one from Samsung, then the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 (from S$379) is the smartwatch to get. While the latest version is an iterative upgrade with a tougher sapphire crystal display, and a larger battery, it still offers an excellent user experience, as well as plenty of useful health and fitness tracking features.

Apple HomePod (2nd Gen)

The Apple HomePod (S$429) is one of the best smart speakers for dads that are hopelessly entangled in the Apple ecosystem. You get spatial audio and the Siri voice assistant in a compact attractive package. They even work — in a pair with the Apple TV — as speakers for your TV. And they sound good enough, if you're not too picky about the bass.

A comfortable chair goes a long way for dads that work (or game) from home. Especially an open mesh type that keeps you cool, like the Omnidesk Embrace Pro. It has all the basic ergonomic features covered. And while you can't recline all the way down, you can get to a comfortable sleeping position. Pricing (it has gone as low as S$452) is competitive, too.

If his car doesn't already have driver assistance features such as lane detection, the 70mai Omni X200 Dash Cam (S$329) makes for a good gift. The camera also rotates 360 degrees, shoots good quality video, and has cool voice-activated features. You can even get AI-powered motion detection with the optional 4G hardwire kit.
