There are plenty of advanced (and expensive) e-book readers today, but sometimes, you can’t beat an original. Amazon’s latest refresh of its classic Kindle has everything you need in an e-reader and nothing you don’t: It’s light, the E Ink display is gorgeous and easy on the eyes, offers great battery life, and now has a built-in front light for late-night reading sessions. It’s also affordable even at its normal price of $90, but a $25 discount lets you grab this last-minute Father’s Day gift for just $65 — the perfect present for any book-loving dad.

Fitbit Versa 2 — $150, was $200

If dad’s an active guy but is not quite sold on the idea of a smartwatch, then a fitness tracker like the Fitbit Versa 2 might just change his mind. As one of Fitbit’s flagship smart wearables, the Versa 2 packs an impressive array of health- and fitness-centric functions including automatic exercise detection and tracking, sleep quality monitoring when worn at night, all-day activity tracking, and a built-in heart rate monitor.

There are many great true wireless earbuds on the market in 2020, but the Apple AirPods are still the king — and the new AirPods Pro are even better. They deliver clear and crisp sound, isolate ambient noise to allow you to enjoy music and take calls without distractions, and are comfortable in the hear for hours at a time. They also come with a wireless charging case, which is an upgrade you have to pay for with the standard AirPods. They’re the priciest of the AirPods, but a nice $30 Father’s Day discount lets you grab a pair for dad for $220.

Apple iPad 10.2 — $250, was $330

The Apple iPad 10.2 is still the best tablet for most people (even folks who don’t normally favor Apple gadgets like iPhones) and the latest refresh is a steal at this price. This updated 2019 model boasts a gorgeous 10.2-inch Retina display — a half-inch bigger compared to the previous version thanks to trimmed-down bezels — and offers great performance for web browsing, streaming, and mobile gaming. It’s a great value even at its normal price of $330, but this fantastic deal knocks it down to $250, making it the perfect last-minute Father’s Day gift for any tech-loving dad.
