Mark your calendar, Father’s Day is a little more than a week away on Sunday, June 19. And if you’re looking for a perfect gift to help celebrate dad, we’re featuring eight great accessory choices.
Stack Pack Wireless Charging System for the iPhone 6s
A unique wireless charging system, the Stack Pack is composed of an iPhone 6s/6 or 6s/6 Plus case, a wireless charging pack, and a AC wireless wall plug. So you can leave any wires at home. The Power Pack contains a 2,750mAH battery.
The pack is recharged by placing it on the AC wall adapter. As a nice touch, it can recharge up to five packs at one time. When you’re needing to charge your iPhone, just take a Power Pack from the charger and place it on the back of the iPhone case. They securely snap together with a magnetic connector.
ZUS Smart Car Charger
Pretty much anyone needs a car charger to juice up their iOS devices while on the go, and Nonda’s ZUS features some extra-added smarts. Along with being able to quickly juice up an iPhone or iPad, you can also use the charger to help locate your car in a crowded parking lot. It works like this. Whenever you park, it will automatically save your location. When you’re ready to find your vehicle, open up the companion app and you’ll be guided to the car with either a map or compass view.
Lowry Leather Apple Watch Band from Pad & Quill
A high-quality alternative to Apple’s official Classic Buckle band, the Lowry is made with full grain leather from the famous Horween Tannery in Chicago. Each band is handmade and sports a signature from each craftsman. The band’s stitching is rugged and tied off by hand while the lugs and buckles are made from nickel.
You can select from one of three beautiful colors – tan, dark brown, or black. Each option is $109.95. It’s available in both a 38mm and 42mm version for both sizes of the watch. Pad & Quill backs its products with a 25-year warranty on its leather.
And if you’re looking for some inexpensive options, our own Karen Freeman recently published an awesome roundup of some of the best third-party Apple Watch bands on the market.
SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Gaming Controller
While all MFi controllers can be used with the Apple TV, the Steel Series Nimbus Wireless Game Controller officially supports the revamped device. A full-sized controller, it offers gamers console-style left and right analog triggers and pressure-sensitive buttons.
Along with LEDs to display your status during multiplayer action, it also sports color-coded action buttons. A specific Menu button helps to navigate around your Apple TV. The built-in battery can provide up to 40 hours of gaming action, and it can be charged with a standard Lightning cable like the one included with your Apple TV.
Approximately the size of two quarters stacked together, the TrackR Bravo can attach to pretty much anything you don’t want to lose, including keys, pets, bikes, wallets, and more.
When you need to track down your item, simply fire up the companion TrackR app and click on the item.
If you’re in a 100-foot range, the TrackR Bravo will automatically ring so you can find it.
You can select from one of four different colors for $29.99.
Luvvitt Clear Grip Case for the 9.7-Inch iPad Pro
A minimalistic case choice for the smaller iPad Pro, Luvvitt’s option is compatible with Apple’s Smart Cover and protects the back of the tablet. Made with a flexible and clear material, it allows users to protect the back of the tablet while showing off Apple’s design. Along with reinforced corners to protect the iPad from drops, the raised front lip allows users to place their tablet face down without having to worry about scratching the screen.
It’s $12.99. You can also select from a version that isn’t compatible with the Smart Cover.
Game Golf Live Tracking System
A great way to improve your golf game, Game Golf Live is an automatic, real-time shot tracker that works in tandem with an iPhone app to provide tons of great information about on-course performance. A wearable GPS device communicates with sensor tags attached to the top of the grip on each club. The system can work on more than 33,000 courses in more than 125 countries.
It even works with the Apple Watch and will show information about the hole you are playing, and the distance from your current location to the front, middle, and back of the green.
Speck Mighty Pack Plus
While Speck is well-known for its great line of cases for the iPhone and iPad, the company has recently branched out with a new line of reasonably priced backpacks, including the MightyPack Plus. The top feature of the backpack is its Tech Locker near the top of the backpack.
It’s reinforced with extra foam and lined with faux fur to help protect your delicate items. The pocket itself is roomy enough to hold items like headphones, and it also has a side pocket to store smaller things like your iPhone or glasses. The backpack can lie completely flat so you won’t have to remove your laptop when going through airport security.
