Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 – $200, was $230

Saving your dad the need to dig out his laptop or squint at a small phone screen, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 offers a large 10.5-inch LCD display and all the useful features you’d expect. 128GB of storage means plenty of room for all your dad’s favorite apps and games. A long-lasting battery and fast charging also save it from the all-too-frequent use of a power source.

One of the best Garmin watches for sturdiness, the Garmin Instinct 2 is great for the active dad. Whether he likes to run, hike or swim, this smartwatch is for him.

The Apple Watch Series 8 is one of the best smartwatches out there, and it’s a must-have if your dad already owns an iPhone. It looks great while also being an excellent health companion.

The same applies to cardiac arrhythmias. In addition, it records all his training sessions and encourages him to do more to beat his previous records.
