Kelly Lopez, Social Media Manager and Blogger for BuyDig.com. tells this Examiner, "Tablets, smart watches, pedometers (such as the Garmin Vivofit), MP3 players, and headphones like the TDK BA100 In-Ear Headphones have all been big trends in gifts for dads. Any one of these can please just about any kind of father – from the geeky dad to the football fanatic.”
If your dad likes to workout BuyDig.com suggests buying him the perfect headphones to go take on a run or to the gym. "My favorite playlist helps me go the extra mile," says Mike Johnson of Providence. With two children, a demanding job, and taking care of the house, especially this time of the year, I do not always have time for a long workout so I need to make them count. The TDK BA100 In-Ear Headphones BuyDig.com provided make a difference because unlike other headphones the ear buds stay securely in my ears while providing great quality sound. Something as simple as that keeps me in a running groove and enables me to get in a better work out."
To step up your Father's day gift BuyDig.com says the Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band Bundle with the heart rate monitor is a perfect complement to a great set of headphones.

The Garmin displays steps, calories, distance; monitors sleep and pairs with heart rate monitor for fitness activities.
"I really love wearing this band," says Johnson, "it is sporty, waterproof, looks like a watch but does a whole lot more. Being able to determine my resting and heart rate throughout the day really helped me design an efficient work out regimen. It was interesting to see calories expended while exercising as well as at rest. Pairing it to the Garmin website was not only great incentive but the social interaction with other users gave me even more motivation to get moving."
