Huawei P30 ProIf Dad likes to take pictures of his kids or grandkids, he'll love the Huawei P30 Pro. Huawei is known for having an incredible camera and this phone takes photos and video from farther than ever. It will give you 50 times the digital zoom compared to other cameras, and stabilizes the shot so the pictures aren’t grainy. It’s also got the new Huawei SuperSpectrum sensor that gives you perfect night shots without a flash, which is pretty great.

Samsung Galaxy watchThis watch isn't just a fitness partner. It’s also an on-wrist personal assistant! It will actually send you motivational messages throughout the day to keep you on your exercise goals and track your activity.
You can also receive phone calls, text messages, and get reminders on your wrist, so it helps you tackle all your day to day needs, on top of tracking your movement.
Right now it comes with a bonus wireless charging pad which is great, and the cool thing is it also has wireless power sharing capability so you can share power between this and your other Samsung devices if you don’t have the charging pad with you.

Beats Powerbeats ProThese are truly wireless earbuds! They’ve got volume and track controls on each earbud. They’ve also got incredible sound and a noise isolation feature that blocks out background noise, so you can focus on your music.
These Powerbeats give you up to 9 hours of listening time! Plus, they have “Fast Fuel” which is a 5-minute charge that gives you an hour and a half of playback when your battery is low, so dad never has to be without music for a workout.
We also love that they have secure ear hooks that fit over your ears instead of sitting inside them, because you don’t have to worry about them falling off.

Xbox OneWith this XBOX, you don’t need a disc. This updated console holds all your digital games for gamers who want a truly digital experience.
Often people want to play the minute a new game drops, so they’re downloading digital games and saving them to their XBOX, instead of buying discs. The problem is, they eventually run out of room, so the beauty of the XBOX One S All Digital is that everything is saved to your Microsoft Account, so you never run out of space.
This is also a great product if you want to save and travel with your games. Just sign in on any XBOX One with your Microsoft Account and you’re ready to go.

Bose QuietComfort 35 Over-Ear Wireless HeadphonesThese headphones are engineered with world-class noise cancellation and powerful high quality sound so your Dad can get clear, balanced audio at any volume.
They block out certain frequencies for the person on the other side, so if you’re washing dishes or outside on a windy day, it helps block those noises out too, so it’s easy for both parties to have a clear call.
They come with direct access to Amazon Alexa, and the Google Assistant has also been added for simple voice control on the go.

They’ve got Bluetooth connectivity for easy pairing with your phone, and there’s an integrated mic for calls and access to your phone’s virtual assistant so your dad can listen to music, check the score on the game or get directions all while walking down the street on a sunny day.
The open-ear audio lets you stay aware of your surroundings, and the shades also block up to 99% of UVA and UVB rays so you’re getting great sun protection too.
