New tech gifts from Samsung, Aura and EKSAtelecom for this Father’s Day

Greg GazinIf you’re finding it a little tough this year to find just the right gift for Dad, here are a few tech gifts that might just pleasantly surprise him for Father’s Day.

Samsung Storage Memory in a Flash

If Dad loves to capture, preserve, and share family memories but also needs extra storage capacity for home or work, the Samsung PRO Ultimate Micro SD Memory Card could be the perfect gift this year to help him do just that while unleashing his creativity.

What makes this SD Memory card special is that it’s lightning-fast, robust, and resistant to temperature, water, and X-rays. These features are a necessity for Dad’s gaming consoles, drones, and dash and action cams, which require loads of solid storage and the ability to smoothly and reliably capture high frame rate ultra-high definition 4K video. For the tech-savvy Dad, this new line supports the U3, V30, and A2 speed classes and offers read speeds of up to 200MB per second and write speeds of up to 130MB per second.

The memory cards are also compatible with Dad’s laptop, tablet, and digital camera.

The Samsung PRO Ultimate Micro SD Memory Card comes in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage capacities, capable of storing about seven and a half to 30 hours of 4K video or about 50,000 to over 200,000 4K HD photos.

Retail prices start at $39.99, and the card comes with an SD adapter. They are available from, Best Buy, and your other favourite retailers.

Aura Wall-Worthy 15-inch Digital Picture Frame

If your family takes thousands of pictures and videos that often stay hidden on smartphones, tablets, and cameras, the 15-inch Walden Digital Picture Frame by Aura can help Dad relive his favourite family moments every day.

This stunning 1600 x 1200 frame can showcase all the family’s memories, whether it’s sitting on a tabletop with its included frame stand or mounted on the wall with the included kit. It has dual orientation so that it can be positioned in both landscape and portrait modes, and it supports slideshows of photos and plays videos with sound.

The matte-finish screen with anti-reflective coating reduces annoying glare. Easy-to-use touch controls with an interactive touch bar simplify operation, and the auto on/off sensors can save power when not in use.

The companion Aura app allows Dad to manage his treasured memories and makes it easy for family and friends to contribute their pictures too.

There are no ongoing fees or storage limits, and setup is a snap.

Walden by Aura is available directly from Aura, and Staples and is currently priced at $349.00 for Father’s Day.

EKSAtelecom Wireless All-Day 99.9 percent Noise Canceling Headset

If your Dad needs to stay connected and wear his headset all day while remaining aware of his surroundings, the new EKSAtelecom S30 True Wireless Air Conduction Headset should be at the top of your list.

What sets the S30 apart is its VoicePure ENC (Environmental Noise Cancellation) Technology, which achieves crystal-clear communication by eliminating virtually all unwanted noise heard by the receiver. This is accomplished using AI algorithms in its four noise-cancelling mics.

Designed with truckers in mind, it’s also great for any dad. The cabin of a big rig can be noisy, as can driving to and from work, office sounds, mall crowds, or TVs blaring, kids talking, and more at home. The headset also features a privacy mode to mute the mics.

Its open-ear design keeps the wearer aware of their surroundings, and the mic boom can be worn on either the left or right side. Simply wrap it around the ear with the adjustable hook and position the speaker where it fits best. It’s so comfortable that Dad will almost forget he’s wearing it.

The fully charged cradle provides up to nine hours of talk time and 16 hours of music, for a total of up to 70 hours. A quick five-minute charge provides about an hour of use. It also features the latest Bluetooth 5.3, so it works from up to 30 metres away, allowing Dad to take calls even from the garage.

The EKSAtelecom S30 comes with a protective zippered case for the headset, charging cradle, and USB-C cable. It’s available directly from EKSAtelecom and is currently being promoted for $139.99 plus import charges.
