Father's Day Gifts for the Tech-Savvy Dad From Cricket

MISSION, KS--(Marketwire - May 30, 2011) - (Family Features) Finding the right gift for a digital dad can be tricky. But this quick gift guide will help you find the perfect present to make him feel truly appreciated.

Does he love golf? Help dad improve his game by perfecting his grip. The SensoGlove Digital Golf Glove has built-in sensors that read his grip pressure. Practicing with this glove will teach him the correct grip pressure so he can get a smooth, consistent swing. That means greater distance, more precision -- and better scores. The leather glove has a lightweight digital computer that can be removed and replaced without removing the glove, so he can use only when he wants to. It can be used for backyard practice, on the driving range, or during actual play. Learn more at www.sensoglove.com.

Does he love music? But hates the idea of paying a buck or more every time he wants to download a song? Give him Muve Music from Cricket, the first wireless phone plan with unlimited music downloads, ringtones and ringbacks as part of one low monthly rate package. Muve Music is an experience designed specifically for the mobile phone. Full-track downloads mean his music is always there (unlike streaming services) and Cricket has millions of songs from 55 labels in its always growing music library that adds new and classic music every week. In addition to the music, Muve Music includes nationwide calling; text, picture and video messaging; 3G mobile Web; e-mail; and more. As an added bonus, you can personalize the gift by downloading a playlist of dad's favorite songs to get him started. For more information, visit www.muvemusic.com or www.mycricket.com.

Does he love his tablet? No matter what kind of tablet dad has, help him get the most out of it with a mounting system. The RingO Elegant Universal Mounting System from Vogel lets him securely mount his tablet anywhere -- at home, at work or even in the car. With one click, he can show presentations on the wall, enjoy movies anywhere (even the car), display photos on the coffee table or play instructional videos while cooking in the kitchen.

Is he handy? Swiss Army knives can be useful in all kinds of out-of-home situations. But the Victorinox Flash Swiss Army knife adds some tech flare to the standard tool mix. These pocketknives come with LED lights and a USB memory stick (ranging from 4 GB to 16 GB). So not only can he be Mr. Fix-It with the nail file/screwdriver, he can rescue data files, too. See all options at www.swissarmy.com.

Is he the grill master? Grilling gurus can indulge their love of gadgets with a wireless digital talking BBQ thermometer. The Grill Right, from Oregon Scientific, lets dad keep tabs on the steaks without having to hover over the coals. All he has to do is enter the cut of meat and the desired temperature or level of doneness, and when it's done, the thermometer lets him know -- in one of 5 languages. It has alert options to let him know the status of the food, as well -- almost ready, ready and overcooked. Learn more at us.oregonscientific.com.
