Father’s Day tech gifts to delight any Dad

New Father’s Day offerings from Samsung, Aura & EKSAtelecom

Samsung Storage Memory in a Flash

If Dad loves to capture, preserve and share those family memories but also needs extra storage capacity for home or work, then this year, the Samsung PRO Ultimate Micro SD Memory Card might make for the ideal gift to help Dad do just that and help him unleash his creativity.
What makes this SD Memory card special is that it’s lightning-fast, robust and temperature, water and x-ray proof. 

These features are a necessity for Dad’s gaming consoles, drones, and dash and action cams that require loads of solid storage and the ability to smoothly and reliably capture high frame rate ultra-high definition 4K video. For the tech Dad, this new line supports the U3, V30 and A2 speed class and offers read speeds of up to 200MB/s (megabytes per second) and writes up to 130MB/s.

They are also compatible with Dad’s laptop, tablet and digital camera.

The Samsung PRO Ultimate Micro SD Memory Card comes in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage capacities that can store about seven-and-one-half hours to 30 hours of 4K video or about 50,000 to 200,000+ 4K HD photos.
Retail prices start at $39.99 and it comes with an SD adapter. They’re available from Amazon.caBest Buy and your other favourite retailers.

Aura Wall-Worthy 15-inch Digital Picture Frame

If your family takes thousands of pictures and videos, many of which stay hidden on smartphones, tablets and cameras or Samsung’s Pro Ultimate SD card, the 15-inch Walden Digital Picture Frame by Aura can help Dad relive his favourite family moments each day.

This stunning 1600 x 1200 frame can showcase all the family’s memories, whether it’s sitting on a tabletop with its included frame stand or mounted on the wall with the included kit. It has a dual-orientation so it can be positioned in both landscape and portrait modes, and it supports slideshows of photos and also plays videos with sound.

The matte-finish screen with anti-reflective coating reduces annoying glare. The easy-to-use touch controls with an interactive Touch Bar simplify operation and the Auto on/off sensors can save power when not in use.

The companion Aura app allows for managing Dad’s treasured memories and makes it easy for family and friends to contribute their pictures too.

There are no ongoing fees or storage limits and setup is a snap.

Walden by Aura is available directly from AuraAmazon.ca and Staples, currently priced at $349.00 for Father’s Day.

EKSAtelecom Wireless 99.9% Noise Canceling Headset

If your father needs to stay connected and wear his headset all day yet still wants to be aware of his surroundings, the new EKSAtelecom S30 True Wireless Air Conduction Headset should be at the top of the list.

What sets the S30 apart is its VoicePure ENC (Environmental Noise Cancellation) Technology, achieving crystal-clear communication by eliminating virtually all unwanted noise heard by the receiver. This is accomplished using AI algorithms in its four noise-canceling mics.

It’s designed with truckers in mind but is great for any dad. The cabin of a big rig can be noisy, so can driving to and from work, office sounds, mall crowds, or TVs blaring, kids talking, and more at home. There’s also a privacy mode to mute the mics.

What’s also great is its open-ear design to keep the wearer aware, and that the mic boom can be worn on either the left or right side. Simply wrap it around the ear with the adjustable hook and position the speaker where it fits best. It’s so comfortable, Dad will almost forget he’s wearing it.

He’ll get up to nine hours of talk time and 16 hours of music with up to 70 hours total with a fully charged cradle. Charging it for just five minutes will keep the sound going for about an hour. It also features the latest Bluetooth 5.3, so it works from up to 30m away, allowing Dad to be out in the garage and still take calls.

The EKSAtelecom S30 comes with a protective zippered case for the headset, charging cradle, and USB-C cable. It’s available directly from EKSA  and sells on promotion for $139.99 plus import charges.

Happy Father’s Day!
