This classic headphone (circa 1991) has a 10-foot coiled cable, a phono adapter — and no microphone. To be clear: It’s a terrible choice for using with a smartphone, and more at home when connected to a full-size stereo receiver. But it sounds sublime.  Whether Dad is clueless in the kitchen or he’s a full-blown chef, he’ll love preparing meals in an Instant Pot. This do-it-all pressure cooker is great for set-it-and-forget-it meals, with options for beginners and gourmets alike. And the 6-quart model is a whopping 40 percent off at Amazon this week.  Jun 15 • Great last-minute Father’s Day gifts for 2019 Best Fitbit under $100 See at Amazon Nomad Wireless Charging Base Station ($99.95) For dads who like easy meals Read Roku Streaming Stick Plus review Lifetime High Performance Cooler ($97) Amazon Echo ($65) The best smart display Netflix, HBO, Hulu and every other streaming video service under the sun — Roku has it all. This $60 HDMI stick delivers all those channels at up to 4K resolution, and the included remote controls the TV’s power and volume, too. It’s a great gift for any dad, and it’s on sale this week for $49. Roku Streaming Stick Plus ($49) See at Amazon AirPods and other name-brand truly wireless headphones cost $160 and up. But we found the Anker SoundCore Liberty Air earbuds to deliver solid sound quality at half that price. This model also offers better noise isolation than the AirPods, and it’s available in both black and white. This product is also available at Walmart.Looking for more options?

Read Anker SoundCore Liberty Air review There are plenty of great Alexa-powered Echo products, but in this price range, we’re loving the Google Nest Hub (formerly known as the Home Hub). The smart display gives you instant access to a world of answers whenever you say, “Hey, Google,” and the device’s lack of a camera makes us feel better about having it in the bedroom. (Note that Google just introduced a larger 10-inch version of this product with a camera called the Nest Hub Max, but that will run you $230.) The retail price of this product is $129, but it’s been on sale throughout the spring as low as $65. Otherwise, you can find it on sale for closer to $99 at Walmart and elsewhere.  Best truly wireless headphones under $100 Read Google Nest Hub review Fitbit has several fitness trackers under $200: the $180 Versa, the $160 Versa Lite and the $120 Charge 3. But in this price category, the new-for-2019 Inspire HR comes in at the $100 price point. The HR is so named because it has always-on heart rate monitoring, and its battery should last up to five days. If you want the name brand cachet and superior smartphone apps, the Fitbit is a good trade-up from the Amazfit mentioned above. Sarah Tew/CNET Juan Garzon/CNET Apple’s AirPower charging stand will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get Dad a nice wireless charging pad that can juice up 2 Qi-compatible devices at once. The Nomad Wireless Charging Base Station also includes USB-A and USB-C ports, so he can charge up two other devices, too. Sarah Tew/CNET 0 Read Kindle Paperwhite review Yes, the Echo Dot sells for half the price, but it’s worth splurging on Dad’s special day for the full-size Amazon Echo — especially when it’s marked down by one-third, as it is right now. In addition to its zillions of smart home functions, this voice-controlled speaker delivers better-than-average sound quality and doubles as a straight-up Bluetooth speaker, too. Oh, and it tells jokes that only a dad can appreciate.

But if Dad’s a book lover, the Kindle Paperwhite beats a phone app because it offers distraction-free reading. Other ways the Paperwhite beats a phone: It’s readable in full sunlight or in a darkened bedroom, it’s fully waterproof and its battery lasts days or weeks, not just a few hours. The Paperwhite normally retails for $130, and it will likely dip back down to $90 or less for Prime Day. But this week it’s just under $100, which is why we’re including it here.
