And with Father’s Day just around the corner, what better time to contribute to their bevy of technology than on 20 June and show our appreciation for the most important men in our lives. To that end we’ve compiled a list of top gadgets for father’s day. Let’s get started!
The ideal gift for 2021, the Oblio Wireless Charging Station also functions as a full fledged Sanitiser.

With everyone’s anxiety understandably still at a high when it comes to hygiene, the charging station will only continue to grow in popularity.
Apple’s latest smartwatch is it’s most innovative to date, packed full of a whole host of features including a blood oxygen sensor, workout selector and over 75 million songs courtesy of Apple Music. The Apple Watch Series 6 is the ideal gift for any dad looking to shift some lockdown lumber this summer.
Powered by a faster, S6 64-bit dual core processor, the Apple Watch’s always-on retina display has been upgraded so it’s now 2.5 times brighter outdoors.
