Jawbone UP24

Between work, taking the kids to sport practices and matches and helping mom with daily errands, dad also need to keep track of their wellbeing and fitness and the Jawbone UP24 fitness band is ideal for exactly that. Unlike most other fitness bands, the Jawbone’s design is slim and light and sits comfortably on your wrist, so you can wear it discreetly with any clothing. The Jawbone’s main features include, sleep, heart rate, running and exercise monitoring, Bluetooth connectivity to the companion app and fitness goal settings.

Beats Executive headphones

Beats headphones are known for delivering powerful bass sound quality and the Beats Executive headphones are no exception. The headphones are lightweight at just 360 grams and fold for easy storage and mobility. The design is simple yet sleek and come in black or grey. The padded earcups are designed to deliver excellent noise-cancelletion and comfort for the ears. Perfect for those moments when dad wants to jam to his favourite tunes while he takes a time-out.

For stylish and tech-savvy dads, the Knomo Macbook Air Envelope will keep your 11 inch Macbook safe and secure, with looking chunky and serious. The envelope is made of quality genuine leather, has a padded interior with soft velveteen lining and fastens with 2 press studs on the leather flap. Its compact size also means it can be fitted into another bigger bag, but we think it’s too sleek to hide away.
