Has Father’s Day crept up on you this year? Don’t stress, because you’re not alone. Luckily, it’s an exciting time of year for tech – so add these cool gadgets to your dad’s list of tricks to show off at the next BBQ…
Track man’s best friend (or vehicle) with this tiny piece of tech
The versatile little Pod 3 GPS Tracker (from $189) can attach to… well, pretty much anything. Whether it’s your dad’s motorbike, drone, boat, or even pet – simply attach the Pod 3 and you’re away. The Pod 3 can track location using GPS technology, monitor health and fitness, and record adventures with motion data. Plus, it’s fully waterproof, so he won’t have to worry about it going for a dip. Using an embedded Vodafone roaming SIM card, the Pod 3 is capable of working across multiple networks in each region, and across more than 175 countries globally.
Take his smartphone screen to the next level

Time to spring into action
Finally, there’s a smart watch in Australia that’s 4G SIM-enabled! The Huawei Watch 2 4G is perfect for the fitness nut dad – it allows him to call and text when he goes for a walk or a run, so he can leave his phone behind. He can even use apps like Uber, and the watch has sensors that track distance travelled, speed, heart rate and loads more.
Never miss a beat with a powerful pair of headphones
For the dad who loves music, a pair of good headphones never goes amiss. Beats Powerbeats 3 have up to 12 hours battery life, can go wireless, and come in a range of bold colours, so you can customise your (dad’s) cool.
Meanwhile, Jabra Elite Sport headphones go wireless with Bluetooth technology, and are ideal for sports workouts. They hold up to nine hours of battery charge and feature a Hear Through function – which filters ambient noise and allows you to hear sounds like cars through your music when you’re crossing the road.
