Chromecast with Google TV

6425976 sd

The Chromecast with Google TV is a really good option for those Dad’s that love to watch TV. Google released this in late 2020, and it’s a great way to cut the cord and watch plenty of great content.

One of the best features of Google TV, is being able to get recommendations on the home screen, from different genres, across all of the apps installed on your Chromecast. It also has live TV listings for YouTube TV, if you use that.

Of course, it runs on Android TV, so all of your favorite apps are available here. That includes Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, STARZ, Showtime and much more. And it’s just $50.

  • Price: $229
  • Where to buy: Amazon

The Jabra Elite 85t are the latest version of one of the best pairs of truly wireless earbuds on the market. The Elite 85t offer up really incredible battery life. Coming in at about five and a half hours of continuous playback and around 25 hours with the included carrying case.

Jabra allows you to customize the sound of the Elite 85t with the MyControls app. So you can add some bass, or up the treble if you like. But by default, the sound on the Elite 85t is already really impressive. And Jabra also has six mics included on these earbuds, so you can get some crystal clear calls, without worrying about getting a lot of background noise.

NVIDIA SHIELD TV

  • Price: $145
  • Where to buy: Amazon

The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is very similar to the Chromecast with Google TV, but a bit more powerful. It doesn’t yet have the Google TV interface, but it is coming.

The SHIELD TV does run on Android TV, giving you access to a slew of great apps including Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Disney+ and more. It also has the ability to Cast, as well as Google Assistant included.

What makes the SHIELD TV different though, is that it can also be used as a gaming console. You can game through NVIDIA GeForce Now, and play all sorts of games on your TV. Which is great news since, buying a PS5 is still almost impossible.

Oculus Quest 2

  • Price: $299
  • Where to buy: Amazon

Who wouldn’t love to get an Oculus Quest 2? It’s the latest virtual reality headset from Oculus (owned by Facebook). And it comes in either 64GB or 256GB models. The 256GB model is $399. We’d recommend getting the 256GB model, particularly if you’re going to play a lot of games.

It’s a standalone VR headset, so you don’t need to have it hooked up to a computer to play games and such. Which is definitely a good thing here. And makes it a lot more convenient.

The Rachio 3 Smart Sprinkler Controller is a rather unique gift to get this year. It’s exactly what it sounds like, a smart sprinkler, so you can control when your lawn is watered, and in which areas, from your smartphone.

eero Pro 6

41S5zsi6xL SL1001

  • Price: $599
  • Where to buy: Amazon

The eero Pro 6 is a great option, if your Dad is complaining about the internet being slow. Or if he has a lot of smart home products in his home. As the eero Pro 6 will help with both. We chose the Pro version over the regular eero 6, because it is more future-proof, supporting up to 1Gbps speeds.

This is the three-pack eero Pro 6, which is why it is $599. But that will cover up to 6,000 square-feet. Meaning that you can easily blanket your home in internet coverage.

Sonos One (Gen 2)

81j5P1FYmaL AC SL1500

  • Price: $199
  • Where to buy: Amazon

The Sonos One (Gen 2) is another great option for Dad this Father’s Day, as far as gifts are concerned. This new second-generation model of the Sonos One has better microphones and also works with AirPlay 2 a bit better. The cool thing with Sonos, is that you can use either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Instead of it being one or the other.

The audio quality on the Sonos One is also really good. For a pretty small speaker, it definitely packs a punch. And works really well with other Sonos speakers for a multi-room setup in your home.

This is perhaps the best Roku TV that you can buy right now. This is the 6-series from TCL, which is a QLED TV that runs on Roku.

With QLED, you’re going to get a really impressive looking picture here. The some deep blacks and really crisp colors. It also has support for HDR, HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. Finally, the TCL 6-Series also has THX Certified Gaming Mode, making it great for pairing with a PS5 or Xbox Series X.

Ninja FG551 Foodi Smart XL

81m2zZF2jnL AC SL1500

  • Price: $249
  • Where to buy: Amazon

The Ninja Foodi Smart XL is a great gift, no matter the occasion. I own one of these myself, and absolutely love it.

The Ninja Foodi Smart XL is able to grill, air fry, roast, bake and much more, all in one appliance. It also has a thermometer that is included, so you can see when your food is ready.

It’s fairly large at about four quarts, and big enough for four to six steaks, depending on the size of the steak.

Sonos Arc

61mnsKw0dyL AC SL1500

  • Price: $799
  • Where to buy: Sonos

The Sonos Arc has been pretty tough to find since it was released last year. So if you do plan to get this for Father’s Day as a gift, you’d better plan early. As shipments are about 2-3 weeks out right now.

Sonos Arc is one of the best soundbars on the planet right now. Of course, it works really well with the rest of the Sonos ecosystem, but it also has Dolby Atmos included, which can really make your home shake.

Google Nest Hub

This is the second-generation Nest Hub from Google, and it works really well with a number of smart home products. It also works well on a desk playing music, showing YouTube and even asking Google Assistant all kinds of questions.

This would also work well in a bedroom, since there is no camera. Instead it uses other sensors to see what’s going on in the room. Including the ability to track your sleeping. Which is rather neat.
