Dad has given you the world and more. So don’t forget that Sunday, June 21, is Father’s Day. Beyond thanking dad for all he does, what better way to give him something he can use in the fitness department? Here are some running, fitness and other gifts to make him happier.
Amazon Gift Card $100.00
I ordered 2 $100 gift cards to give out as gifts for Father’s Day. It was easy to order and dad can get want he wants or needs.
Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor $59.99
First off, all that I was looking for in a heart monitor was the ability to see my heart rate, see if I’m in the zone, and see how many calories I have burned. This watch does all of those functions flawlessly! My family has a history of heart related problems so when I work out, I need to make sure that I am not putting too much stress on my heart while still maintaining a high level of work. I use this primarily during running routine
Flexion Kinetic Series Wireless Bluetooth Headphones $59.99

Design of this earbud is very good. They look so classy and modern. I love the small size of the ear buds and the short green wire. It is very light weight. These are very durable and made of very good material. The wire is tangle free and it don’t tangle at all. It is also sweat proof and i really like this feature.
It is very easy to use. It have a power button on the outer side of one earbud as it is pressed bluetooth turns on and a red-blue light start blinking. Then i turn on my iPad bluetooth and pair both. And it’s ready to use.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite , 6-Inch, Wi-Fi, With Special Offers $88.90

From an overall standpoint, and considering everything you get (compact e-Reader,touch screen, lighting system), The Paperwhite is a very good e-Reader. I am amazed at how much smaller these e-Readers can become with each new generation yet still not feel like you’re losing anything from a “feels like a book” experience.
Reading at night is a good experience with the lighting display in comparison to the other versions of Kindle because you don’t need an additional light that can get in the way: it didn’t disturb, for example, my wife who likes to watch TV in a dark room. It was also very convenient on a plane ride at night as I was able to see the full page of the text vs. a light attachment only reaching most of the screen: there are no impediments to the reading screen.
Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband, Black $92.87
I bought 3 of these fitbit flex devices, one for myself, my wife and my Brother. Before purchasing I researched several wristband devices such as the Jawbone UP, the Nike Fuel and and the Polar Loop. I also looked at the fitbit force which is a newer version of this band. The lack of water resistance on the force was a deal breaker for me. I wanted to be able to wear this band 24/7 and to be able to wear it in the shower or when swimming. That was part of what made it attractive to me. The fitbit flex, to my tastes, had the coolest look. I also know a couple of people who own the fitbit flex and they were very enthusiastic about them so that influenced me as well.
Perfect Fitness Ab Carver Pro $39.99
It sure doesn’t look like much. I got it confused with the touted “ab roller” however, this requires a lot more balancing and can work more areas of your body. It’s a sturdy gadget and I have no worries about it holding up after my 215 lb body. It a solid value at the current price.
The Original G.U.S. 100% Bamboo Wood Multi-device Charging Station and Dock
Good construction and nice touches such as magnetic latches for holding it together. The wires protrude and you have to plug them into your phones manually, though the aesthetics are definitely a winner in our house: minimal dangling coils of wires.
This works very well with multiple devices, we have 2 iphones and 2 ipads (1 mini) and they all fit easily.
Overall, a great design that works well for the many-device household. Just remember that you don’t get cables or chargers with this. Just use what you’re already using.
Show dad how special he is by choosing one or more from the “7 Best Running Gifts for Dad under $100” list that he will surely enjoy.
