Happening on 20th June, Father’s Day is a celebration of the sacrifices and unconditional love our dads have given us over the years.
This year, forget about the usual novelty socks and “Best dad in the world” mugs. Instead, why not mix things up a little, and celebrate the occasion by exploring a novel and exciting family activity!
To inspire your plans, we’ve curated a list of fun activities to try out together as a family this Father’s Day. From cozy, stay-at-home activities such as playing video games and watching dad’s favorite films together, to outdoor adventures such as hiking, running and biking, you can now make the most out of precious family time with Samsung’s suite of innovative devices.
1. Introduce your dad to the world of video gaming
Bond with your dad by inviting him into the immersive world of video gaming! While first-person shooters such as Fortnite may be daunting to learn quickly, you may want to introduce him to immersive adventure games such as The Last of Us Part 1 and 2, and Resident Evil Village.
Console gamers will be thrilled by the Samsung Crystal UHD AU9000, which comes packed with a unique dynamic refresh technology – Motion Xcelerator Turbo – that enables smoother motions and clearer images. And with Super Ultrawide GameView, which lets viewers watch content in 21:9 and 32:9 screen ratios, you can now enjoy more viewing area – perfect for multiplayer games! To top it off, the TV automatically switches to Game Mode when it detects a console has been turned on, and can also optimize its TV settings due to Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), which enables more controls with barely noticeable input lag at 5.8ms.
For PC gaming enthusiasts, impress your dad with scenes that vividly come to life on the Odyssey G7, boasting Samsung’s QLED technology that brings a full range of lifelike hues to your display. Packing in 1.7 times the pixel density of Full HD, the Wide Quad-High Definition (WQHD) resolution of the G7 boasts incredibly detailed, pin-sharp images. It also delivers a rapid 240 Hz refresh rate that eliminates lag for exhilarating gameplay with ultra-smooth action, so you can now form the ultimate multiplayer boss team with your dad.
2. Relive dad’s fondest memories from the past through his favorite films and shows
Spend quality time with your dad by getting him to pick his favorite films from years gone by. There’s bound to be a story behind each pick – it might have been a film he watched with your mom on their first date, or perhaps a generation-defining movie like the original Star Wars films!
To recreate the immersive cinema experience from the comfort of your living room, look no further than Samsung’s The Premiere! Equipped with triple laser technology, The Premiere delivers 4K picture resolution over larger-than-life 120-inch and 130-inch variants. The Premiere also supports Filmmaker Mode, which lets you enjoy watching movies as the director intended.
Top off the cinematic experience from home with the HW-S60A 5.0Ch Soundbar, which comes equipped with two side horn speakers and Samsung Acoustic Beam technology, so that you can experience a wide range of room-filling sounds.
3. Revisit your favorite places as a child with dad
Take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of your favorite neighborhood places that dad used to bring you to as a kid. Don’t forget to capture these moments on the Galaxy A52 5G, which is equipped with a best-in-class quad camera system featuring a 64MP main camera, 5MP macro camera, 12MP ultra wide camera and 5MP depth camera.
Featuring Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) that helps stabilise your shots to keep motion smooth and a Scene Optimizer function which uses AI to shoot with optimal settings for 30 categories of images and backgrounds, the Galaxy A52 5G lays the canvas for you to explore your photography skills as you revisit past memories with dad.
4. Take some time for outdoor family fun
Although we might spend most of our days indoors, outdoor time is just as important for general wellbeing. Whether it is hiking, running or biking, the great outdoors also provides an ideal setting for quality family time.
The Galaxy Watch3 Bluetooth (45mm) is a great companion for working dads who prefer unwinding outdoors. With its ability to measure SpO2 levels – or the amount of oxygen in the bloodstream – your dad can now work out with a peace of mind while tracking his health and fitness progress. And with a slick design, the watch is sure to turn heads, whether in the boardroom or on a hiking trail.
Meanwhile, to capture the best moments of each outdoor family adventure, look no further than the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. Documenting outdoor activities becomes way more fun when you’re equipped with a smartphone capable of taking videos in 8K – the highest resolution video available in a smartphone! The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G also features a Super Steady mode, which uses AI stabilization to deliver gimbal-smooth video when on the move, so you can capture epic outdoor moments of dad in sporting action.
