?While my dad is the one and only Inspector Gadget, these are such amazing ideas! My mom and I were just discussing yesterday what in the world would we get Dad for Father's Day since we couldn't think of one thing he doesn't already have! He loves gadgets, loves to BBQ and runs 6 miles on a daily basis. It's like this page was designed for him. Even though he owns half the items above, I think he would really enjoy the Nike GPS distance watch. Since he was diagnosed pre diabetic a few years back, he has taken up on his passion for running as he was a "college track star" back in his day. Around the time that he was diagnosed, we were newly owners to mini Australian Shepherds. While we didn’t know this at first, they LOVE to run! Since in the past, we’ve owned Siberian Huskies that can run forever, this was the perfect opportunity for my dad to have another running partner. I think this will make for a great gift that will get the most use, since he does already own the iPad, noise canceling headphones, step/distance tracker & the universal remote.
