Father's Day is all about showing the dads in your life lots of love. But it's also about giving them gifts they'd never buy for themselves, but would be super pumped about getting. You know, like anything other than a tie — unless, of course, they're just really into ties.

Here are some cool tech gifts that any tech-savvy dad will love and has probably been waiting for someone to buy for him. That time is now.

The most popular vacuum on Amazon is the Eufy Anker RoboVac 11S with over 30,000 5-star ratings. The RoboVac is slim at only 12.8 inches in diameter and 2.8 inches tall, making it the perfect size to fit under low tables and couches. It's also quiet, has a strong suction power of 1300Pa, and it can consistently run for 100 minutes before it needs a recharge.

Smartphones have mostly eliminated the need for owning an actual video camera, but the GoPro Hero7 Black isn't just a video camera. It's an HD camera featuring a whole bunch of cool tech bells and whistles. It's waterproof without the need of a waterproof case, it's extremely durable (for all those dare devil tricks he'll attempt), has voice commands, 12MP photo, 4K60 and 1080p240, 5GHz WiFi, and the GP1 chip. And the HERO7 Black introduces HyperSmooth, TimeWarp, Live Streaming, and SuperPhoto, as well as support for vertical photos, a photo timer, and 8x slow-mo in-camera playback.
