1. Samsung Galaxy S8
Get Dad one of the best smartphones on the market; buy him the Samsung Galaxy S8 for $729. Unlike the S7, the S8 features a more all-screen look with it 5.8-inch curved display. The fingerprint scanner is now on the back, and you can barely see the bezels.

The headphones are good for a 20-hour use, and with only a 15-minute charge, you get 2.5 hours of use. The headphones sell for $349.95.
3. Fitbit Flex 2
If Dad keeps saying that he’s getting enough exercise when you know he’s really not, get proof with the Fitbit Flex 2. For $60 you track distance steps, active minutes, and calories burned, and it’s also ultra thin.
