The camera boasts 20.1 Megapixels for capturing images in glorious detail and the fast, precise autofocus ensures that pictures will be clear, even if you’re taking pictures of the family playing in the garden.

The RX100 V has a super slow-motion feature[i] and 4K movie recording, allowing you to record and then watch back those special family moments that passed by in a flash, from handstands and water fights to blowing out the candles on a birthday cake. Light, compact and easy-to-use, even the least tech savvy dads can capture beautiful pictures in amazing detail and never miss a thing.


Treat your party loving dad to his favourite tunes in powerful sound

Get the party started with the SRS-XB41 EXTRA BASS™ speaker

The XB41 EXTRA BASS™ speaker with synchronised lights is a must for party animal dads looking to hit the dancefloor. You can even boost the sound by creating a ‘party chain’ – pairing the speaker with up to 100 other XB41 EXTRA BASS™ speakers for when you want the tunes turned up extra loud.

The speaker is ultra-portable and waterproof so you can take it anywhere without needing to worry about spillages.


Give Dad a helping hand in the kitchen

Throw out the recipe book and let the Google Assistant speaker LF-S50G take care of the rest

All you need to do is ask and the Google Assistant speaker S50G can help you create perfect meals in the kitchen. From reminding you of the quantities of ingredients you need, to updating you when your dish needs to come out of the oven, the speaker is the perfect gift for budding chefs.

Voice and gesture control leaves your hands free for chopping, mixing and stirring and it’s splash proof so no need to worry about spillages if you’re a messy cook.

The speaker can also put on your ultimate cooking playlist and the 360-degree speaker offers clear sound and rich bass in every corner of the room so everyone can enjoy the tunes.


The perfect headphones for jet-setting Dads

Treat Dad to some quality ‘me time’ with the WH-1000XM2 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

The 1000XM2 headphones offer industry-leading noise cancellation and wireless freedom, making them a must-have item for frequent flyer Dads looking for some peace and quiet.

The atmospheric pressure function makes them perfect for flying as the technology uses sensors to detect the air pressure around you and optimises the Noise Cancelling accordingly. So whether you’re 30,000 feet above sea level or chilling on the beach, you can shut the world out around you and immerse yourself in your playlists.

Additionally, the ‘Quick Attention’ mode lets you place the palm of your hand to the outside of the headphone ear cup to have a conversation with someone, maybe the flight attendant or the waiter at the bar, without taking the headset off.

This Walkman headset is suitable for temperatures ranging from -5 to 45 degrees and is dustproof to an IP6X rating, making it the perfect companion for beach workouts. It can even be submerged up to two metres underwater for 30 minutes, guaranteed to keep you entertained during a rigorous swimming session.
