Dads. They're like you, only they think they're really good at tech stuff but are perpetually 10 years behind the curve. That's OK, because this gift guide can go a long way to making sure he's at least partially caught up to 2019 ... and beyond.

If we're making some suggestions

Every dad is different, and that means there's no one-size-fits-all gift we recommend over everything else. With that said, there are a few things on here that do stand out as something special.

Getting your dad a new phone is a great way to spoil him on Father's Day, and if you want the best mix of features and value, we'd say to go with the Pixel 3a. It's considerably cheaper than something like the Galaxy S10 but still offers a flagship-like experience with its unbeatable camera, excellent software, and Google's comittment to providing fast, ongoing updates.

If you'd rather get something that's more affordable while still giving your dad something he'll enjoy, the Fitbit Inspire is another great option.

Not only is it one of the lightest and slimmest fitness trackers out there, it's also chock-full of features that encourage you to live a healthier lifestyle and rarely needs to be placed on its charger. Compared to some wearables that need to charge up every single night, that's a huge benefit.

And, if all else fails, you can never go wrong with an Amazon Gift Card.

Happy Father's Day! 👨‍👧‍👦
