That wearable that you want to try so much, some new headphones or speakers, or even your first product with a voice assistant so you can see the many benefits of its operation.
For this reason, and because we want to make your life easier in Actualidad Gadget, We bring you some of the most interesting gadgets to give away on Father's Day, take a look and surprise your father in the most original way.
As always, and in accordance with our editorial line, at Actualidad Gadget we only recommend products that we have analyzed on our website and that meet a high quality standard, always keeping in mind their quality / price ratio.
Headphones and wearables
We start with a recommendation of headphones, and in this case we go to one of the latest products that we have analyzed, the Huawei FreeBuds 4i, headphones that come with many of the advantages that the Huawei FreeBuds Pro already had, but with a relationship of unbeatable quality / price considering some of the hardware that they have dispensed with. They have active noise cancellation, a battery greater than 7 hours of continuous playback and a fairly high audio quality. The launch price is € 69 if we take advantage of the € 10 discount on Huawei's official website.
If what you are looking for is a product something else premiumAt Actualidad Gadget we have also tested noise-canceling headband headphones. In this case, the ones that have surprised us the most with their quality / price ratio have been the X By Kygo A11 / 800, headphones that are sold in two color variants and offer a touch panel, active noise cancellation, application with its own configuration and much more at a demolition price of 69,90 euros.
For its part, we now turn to smart watches, one of the most popular "wearables". We return again to Huawei, and it is that its Watch GT 2 Pro It is positioned as a device compatible with both Android and iOS. It is a fairly round product with premium materials, compatible straps and a high degree of customization thanks to its dial shop. You can find it from 199 euros in some points of sale, allowing you to meet our quality / price requirement.
And the last option is precisely also one of the last devices that we have tested, the Jabra Elite 75t, headphones that have wireless charging, a high degree of resistance, a very compact case and the advantages of using Jabra Sound +, yes, Jabra Elite 75t -...
Smart speakers and multimedia content
Smart speakers are the order of the day and cannot be absent from our pack of recommendations. Obviously we start with the entry, the new Amazon Echo Dot, a device that despite its "restrained" size has grown a lot. The design is quite attractive, you can buy it in three shades of color and even if you wish it offers you the option of including a watch, it will be "luxurious" on your father's nightstand. The price is 44 euros for the version without a watch, although the version with a watch goes up to 59 euros.
If what you are looking for instead is a good multimedia player, we recommend the new Amazon Fire TV Cube, the advanced version with Fire TV OS that will allow you to access applications, install Android APKs, watch Netflix, HBO and Movistar + content in high resolution (up to 4K is compatible). In its quality / price ratio, it is the best multimedia entertainment center of all those that we have tried, its ease of use is at the level of the rest of the products. While it is true that its official price is 119 euros, in many cases there are very cheap reconditioned and offers that position it at 79 euros.
In the same way, we could accompany these products with a high quality sound, in this case you already know that we usually recommend the Sonos Beam, which is the most complete soundbar that you can put in your home, or failing that, a Sonos One , the first way to get closer to the Sonos environment at the best price, but since we are talking about multimedia centers, we stayed in the quality / price ratio and bet on the most premium, the Sonos Arc. We can't say anything you don't know, Dolby Atmos, maximum settings, Alexa, Google Home and Apple HomeKit fully integrated ... The only excuse not to buy it is that it costs 899 euros, but he deserves it, without a doubt.
We have given you the perfect pack to enter Alexa and put your Spotify or Apple Music music to the maximum, products of three different prices and that fulfill all its promises.
Entertainment and accessories
For entertainment as we always bet on reading, we started with the Kobo Nia, one of the most recommended products from our sister website TodoeReaders, a very well paced product, with the characteristics specially adjusted to the price of the device and that can make your father finally enter digital reading, electronic books save a lot of money and they are very versatile.
If what you are looking for is a complete tablet, it is difficult to find a better relationship quality / price than Huawei's MatePad 10.4. These are its detailed technical characteristics:
- Processor: Kirin 810
- Memory RAM: 4 GB
- Storage: 64 GB with microSD expansion up to 512 GB
- Display: 10,4-inch IPS LCD panel at 2K resolution (2000 x 1200)

All this for a price of around 219 euros, very adjusted taking into account its characteristics and all the possibilities that it will offer us at the entertainment level. As a disadvantage, it does not come with Google Services pre-installed, but you can install them yourself later.
We have also tried handheld vacuum cleaners, a very interesting product that has more and more features. An example is this latest analysis from Tineco, a handheld vacuum cleaner that is capable of scrubbing on its own. It is curious what this type of procedure can facilitate us on a day-to-day basis.
Magic arrives with its white top panel. We have in it a Qi charging panel wireless that offers 5W of power, ideal to avoid damaging the battery in nighttime charges. We also have here the huge number of buttons that will allow us to adjust and configure our Wake Up.
