If you want to be dad's favorite this year, choose one of these cool gifts from our roundup

It's tougher to buy Father's Day gifts when many stores are still observing limited hours and social distancing. To make your shopping easier, here's a roundup of gift ideas.

The techie dad will appreciate a high-tech power strip, the outdoorsy dad will be pleased to have the ultimate water bottle, and the athletic dad will dig having a smart rowing machine so he can skip going to the gym, or a new Fitbit to monitor his workout. There's also a fantastic curved monitor that works for a home office and for the gamer dad, and a cool new Chromebook that is a 2-in-1 detachable.

Austere Surge Protector


Sure, it's a surge protector. But not just any surge protector. The Austere line is sleek and doesn't even look like a traditional surge protector, which is why it will appeal to a techie dad. The Austere Series V Power has six outlets and eight outlet versions available with 3,000 joules of surge protection. The Series VII Power has six outlet and eight outlet versions available with 4,000 joules of surge protection. Some of the key features include smartfit outlets with precise spacing between plugs, a WovenArmor power cable made with Kevlar, and Omniport USB fast charging plugs for flexibility to charge different technology products at once. They also include LED indicators that alert consumers when it is on, grounded and when it has run out of joules and not protecting the products that are plugged in.
