Dads rarely get the recognition they deserve, which is why Father’s Day is a great opportunity to show your dad how much you love and appreciate him. Buying gifts for him, though, can be difficult, putting Father's Day gift ideas at a premium. Our very own Matt Baliva stopped by the KTVI Fox 2 studio in St. Louis to showcase a few of these amazing smart accessories from which to select the perfect gift for your dear old dad.

  • Show Dad you care about his health with the Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale which provides a full picture of health measurements with everything from weight to body fat percentage and body mass index (BMI). The Wi-Fi-enabled scale will help him reach his weight goals by letting him set goals, track progress effortlessly and stay motivated each and every day. The stats also automatically upload to his Fitbit dashboard through Wi-Fi, where he can get a more comprehensive view of health and fitness. It also comes equipped with a free smartphone app to track progress on the go.
  • For the dad who loves TV, the Belkin @ TV Plus or Slingbox 500 make for a great gift. These devices allow Dad to watch and control the TV and all of its programming right from his smartphone or tablet.
  • If your father spends his Saturdays on the golf course, then he’d surely appreciate the Zepp GolfSense Sensor. This smartphone accessory is a lightweight sensor that attaches to a golf glove and transports data on a golf swing via Bluetooth straight to the free smartphone app.
  • Dad can take his music anywhere with excellent sound quality with the Beats Pill Bluetooth speaker. This speaker requires no wires and is small enough to bring along anywhere he may go.
