For the fitness fanatic – the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2

From controlling your phone’s camera to monitoring your heart rate during exercise, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is more than a smartwatch and more than a fitness tracker. It automatically detects seven different types of exercise including running, cycling, rowing and swimming, and records data so he’ll be able to track improvements and work towards goals more efficiently.

When he’s not working out, it can also monitor stress levels and alleviate tension with handy in-built breathing guides, and track sleep to get a better night’s rest.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 also displays contacts and messages to keep him connected even when he’s left his phone at home. There’s also built-in storage for music, so he can take his exercise playlist on the road without relying on his phone or MP3 player. And with a 2-day battery life and wireless charging capability, he’ll never run out of power when he’s on the move.

For the adrenaline junkie - the GoPro Hero7

Maybe you’re planning a festive skiing trip or escaping the cold weather to go travelling the world. If that’s the case, you’ll want to take a GoPro Hero7 Action Camera with you.

With the ability to shoot jaw dropping 4K footage with high frame rates, it’ll capture your memories in ways that your smartphone just can’t. It’s waterproof up to ten metres, making it ideal for him to take on snorkelling trips and surfing lessons, and it’s got built-in stabilisation to keep the camera steady in the bumpiest conditions!

He won’t need to wait till he’s back home to share footage with friends, either. The Hero7 has WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC built-in. With the GoPro app, he can upload the footage before the adrenaline rush is even over.

If he’s already got an action camera and is thinking of upgrading, take a look at the GoPro Hero8. It’s got a raft of great new features including improved HDR, two levels of image stabilisation and a timelapse with adjustable speed.

For the achiever - The Microsoft Surface 3 15" Laptop

Is his laptop a bit worse for wear? Get him a portable powerhouse that can do it all with the Microsoft Surface 3.

It’s super-lightweight and easy for him to take to the office, to cafés for meetings with clients, or just for moving from one room to the next. The Surface 3 performs as great as it looks, with a powerful processor that makes light work of multitasking. He’ll be able to run multiple tabs and keep on top of big work projects, even with Netflix running in the background.

The combination of a Quad HD screen and Dolby Audio Premium means he’ll see and hear the details that go missing when he’s binge watching his favourite show on his phone. And when he’s working on an assignment, the Alcantara fabric keyboard stays comfy for as long as he’s typing.

For the movie buff - the Sky Now TV Smart Stick

If you often find yourselves cuddled up on the couch, struggling to find something you can both agree to watch, why not treat him (and yourself) to a whole new world of entertainment?

The Now TV Smart Stick turns your TV into a Smart TV, with access to all your favourite catch-up and streaming services including BBC iPlayer, All4, ITV Hub, Netflix and loads more. You won’t need to navigate the huge choice of shows it gives you, just use voice search and find the show you’re looking for in seconds.

But that’s not all – with the Now TV Smart Stick, you also get a one-month pass for Sky Cinema and Sky Entertainment, as well as a one-day pass Sky Sports. That means everything from big-budget dramas on Sky Atlantic to blockbuster action movies are included.

And if you don’t have an existing Sky package, you can even watch all Sky Entertainment, Cinema and Sports channels live, just like your regular channels.  

Or, if he’s been talking about getting a new TV altogether, why not make it a Smart TV with a huge choice of shows already at your fingertips? Amazon and Currys have teamed up to launch the all-new JVC Fire TV Edition with built-in Amazon Alexa voice control and a cracking picture.
