GREENSBORO, NC -- Americans are expected to spend $15.5 billion this on dad this Father's Day according to the National Retail Federation. That's billions on gift cards, tech and clothing and millions on greeting cards. But what does your dad really want?
WFMY News 2's Maddie Gardner took that question to the tech experts at Best Buy in Greensboro. The Geek Squad showed Maddie a number of gadgets that your father or father figure is sure to love.
For the hottest tech for dad Geek Squad member Andrea Ward suggests one of the most popular items of the year - Google Home. For a first Father's Day Ward says the Infant Babble Band Audio Baby Monitor is the perfect way to keep dad close to baby. A Samsung Galaxy 8 is a great way to keep in touch with pops but he'll need a PopSocket Grip and Stand to really put the gift over the top.
Father's Day means it's almost time for summer so why not hook your dad up with new water-proof technology. OtterBox protective phone cases and LifeProof Aquaphonics speakers are ideal for days by the pool or outdoors.
