NEW YORK (WABC) --As high school graduation and Father's Day approaches, our Michelle Charlesworth and Tech Lifestyle expert Andrea Smith discuss the best gadgets to buy for all the Dads and Grads out there!
For the Music-Loving Dad or Grad
LG Tone Infinim
Wireless music on the go is great, but runners can tell you it's not always easy or comfortable to keep headphones in place. LG's Tone Infinim have a unique around-the-neck design for a secure, comfortable fit. Retractable earbuds make it easy to locate them when you get a call. Music and volume controls are easy to reach and Harman Kardon audio means you're getting premium, full-bodied sound.
For the Fitness-Loving Dad or Grad
The Basis Peak sports watch is for fitness-loving dads or grads who want to track their workouts and daily routines. It has optical heart rate monitoring for training in the zone and keeps track of steps taken and calories burned, as well as activity and sleep. The Basic Peak delivers notifications from your phone to your wrist so you can see emails, texts and calls on the go and decide if you need to stop and take the call. It's water resistant so you can swim with it, and a vibration alert will let you know if you've been sitting for too long and need to get up and walk.
For the Working Dad or Grad
Two-finger typists everywhere, we feel your pain - your brain can only go as quickly as your fingers can type. Working dads and recent grads can seriously step up their game with Dragon Anywhere, voice dictation software from Nuance. Whether you're in the office or teleworking from a coffee shop, you can create new documents, edit files or write an email from a mobile (iOS or Android) device using just your voice. Dragon dictation software makes it easy and convenient to quickly type up notes of any length following an interview, write up a report or just send an email to a friend.
Available as a monthly or yearly subscription.
For the Snap-Happy Grad
This one is just plain fun for those after-grad parties and celebrations. Polaroid Snap is an instant digital camera that prints 2x3-inch full color physical photos to swap and share, perfect for today's instant-gratification moments. It's a 10-megapixel camera with an integrated printer that uses ZINK - Zero Ink Printing Technology. Photo Booth mode, borders and a self-timer means everyone can be in on the fun!
For the Gamer Dad or Grad
Kicking back and playing the latest video game on a shiny new Xbox One is the perfect gift for any gaming dad or grad in your life. Get one of the bundle like Tom Clancy The Division and you'll get a whopping 1TB hard drive and of course, a download version of The Division, the latest RPG game. Xbox One also gives you access to apps and services like Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO GO and more, as well as 1080p video for Skype.
