Americans are expected to spend $16 billion on Father’s Day gifts this year. While that is still well below Mother’s Day, it is still a record according to the National Retail Federation. Of that $16 billion there will be around $2 billion on electronics. It’s no secret that most dads love tech gadgets and this year there are more to choose from than ever.

Dad’s On-the-Go
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is engineered for entertainment and productivity. The tablet is versatile, stylish and ultra-portable, with a super thin frame designed for users that are looking to get more done at home or on-the-go.

So, dad can relax watching movies on Samsung’s gorgeous 10.5” display with stunning sound thanks to its Quad Speakers with sound by AKG and 14.5 hours of battery life. Or, conveniently control home appliances at optimal levels through SmartThings connected devices.

In addition to getting 50% of the accompanying keyboard now until June 15, which is a $129.99 value, Samsung.com features this tablet starting at $399.99. Samsung is also celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Galaxy smartphone with amazing Galaxy Day promotions on Samsung.com such as with fantastic trade-in offers, 1-year free of YouTube Premium and more.

Beating the Heat
As much as we all love the heat of the summer months, retreating to a cool home after a long day on-the-go is a key ingredient to a great summer. This year let Dad come home to comfort with the all-new ecobee SmartThermostat with voice control.

ecobee SmartThermostat learns how your home heats and cools to help Dad reduce energy consumption, save money and stay in control while home or away – all while enhancing the way the whole family experiences comfort and convenience. Dad can even handle home comfort on-the-go by adjusting the temperature from his smartphone with the ecobee app.

To complete this in-home experience, ecobee SmartThermostat comes with the new, ultra-refined SmartSensor. Simply place SmartSensors around the home so ecobee can sense and detect when you’re home or away, or which rooms in the home are occupied and which are not. Perfect for a great night's sleep for Dad or for the kids. One is included in the box and users can purchase more as needed.

The new ecobee SmartThermostat with voice control is available for purchase on ecobee.com or through select retailer partners including Amazon, Lowes, HomeDepot and Best Buy at an MRSP of $249. Additional in-home compatibility information is available at ecobee.com/compatibility.
