Most of us definitely owe a lot to our fathers, and if your dad is a tech enthusiast, you might be fretting about what to get him this Father’s Day. Here are some gadgets and appliances that will definitely show your appreciation.

1. Arlo Pro 3 Wireless Camera

Which father doesn’t worry about the safety of his family? With the Arlo Pro 3 Wireless Camera system, the whole house will be able to be monitored remotely via Arlo’s mobile app. Even better, you’ll be able to get the 2-camera set at S$799 instead of S$899 on Lazada!

2. JBL Pulse 4

Maybe this is more for the benefit of the family, but you can still disguise it as a gift for your dad! The JBL Pulse 4 is a great speaker and definitely fit for get-togethers that your dad might want to hold with his friends. And of course, you could probably steal it for your room once in a while to get that cool light show.

3. Fitbit Charge 4

For fitness enthusiasts, the Fitbit Charge 4 is a no brainer. On the other hand, if your dad doesn’t exercise much, getting him this might make him more motivated to keep up a consistent exercise routine and get healthier!

Extra storage is always necessary since we have plenty of documents and files from our work and personal lives, and what better way to store them than in an external SSD? Samsung’s portable T7 Touch SSD comes in a few different capacities, but the 1TB one is going for just S$348, which isn’t too bad. What’s more, if you purchase it on Samsung’s website, you get the Samsung Fit E wearable for free!

5. LG NeoChef Microwave Oven

I know what you’re thinking, a microwave? But this isn’t just any microwave. The 23L NeoChef Microwave Oven really is quite cool. Alongside a special coating that eliminates 99.99% bacteria and makes it easy to clean, you can even use the microwave to ferment homemade yoghurt! With dads working from home more nowadays, it’s a great opportunity to get them into the kitchen and bond with the family. Time to get this and hint to your dad to make some yoghurt, for the good of the family of course.

The microwave is currently on sale until 30 June 2020, going at S$199 at authorised LG retailers.

6. Philips Electric Shaver

Shaving can be a pain for men, especially if the shaver tugs on hairs and doesn’t shave close enough to the skin. Not to mention the constant plugging in or replacing batteries to charge. The Philips Shaver S9000 Prestige is a convenient wet and dry shaver that can even charge via Qi wireless charging pads!

7. FiiO EH3 ANC Headphones

If your dad’s still working from home, he might desperately want a pair of headphones with ANC so that he can block out noise to focus on his work. The FiiO EH3 ANC Headphones offers very decent noise-cancelling at the S$329 price point.

8. Apple iPhone SE

Does your dad need a new phone? Well, if he’s not a power user and just wants something easy to use while still being relatively snappy, the iPhone SE might be the one to look at. With the same A13 chip inside as the iPhone 11 Pro Max, this definitely is fast enough for the general public. The singular rear camera lens also works in most people’s favour, since they don’t have to be confused when swapping between lenses and photo modes!

9. Sony ZV-1

If your dad is anything like mine, you’ll have plenty of embarrassing photos and videos from your childhood. These memories will eventually be cherished, and what better way to continue them than by giving your dad a new camera to take photos and videos? The Sony ZV-1 is super compact but takes excellent videos with a whole bunch of cool features.

10. Samsung Tab S6

A second screen is always useful, especially when consuming content. Sometimes, videos on a phone screen are just too small, or you don’t want to bring around your laptop just to check emails or work on documents. A tablet is perfect for those moments. The Samsung Tab S6 is powerful enough and has a lot of features to support work on the go, while giving you that big 10.5″ Super AMOLED screen that’s a joy to watch movies and shows on.


With just under a week to go for Father’s Day, don’t leave gift-buying to the last minute!
