Some top tech gift categories for Father's Day

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Some of the top tech gift categories for Father’s Day.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    One of the top gadget gift categories this Father’s Day is still the smart watch/fitness band.     There are more choices all the time….and they are getting better all the time.   Fitbit’s Blaze is styled like a smartwatch …while the Fitbit Alta is shaped like a band…and carries a significantly lower price.   The Consumer Technology Association’s Jim Barry says there are many others, including, of course, the Apple Watch…

“So you’ve got a lot of choices there and those two categories are kind of merging as the fitness wrist bands add wristwatch capabilities and of course the smartwatches have the fitness capabilities.”

If Dad is into video games,  gaming headsets like the new HyperX Cloud Revolver from Kingston will leave him impressed.   Then there’s the still new VR headset category.   And there are already choices from Samsung, Occulus, HTC and more
