Valentine's Day gifts for him

Valentine's Day gifts for him

Still not sure what to get for that special man in your life? Digital Life comes to the rescue.

GoPro Hero4 Black
$700

Is your significant other a thrill-seeker? If so, GoPro's Hero4 Black action camera would be the perfect gift for him this Valentine's Day.

It records videos at resolutions from 1,080p full high-definition to 4K. Every surf session or bike ride promises to look amazing.

The 12-megapixel camera captures still images that have the same quality as its videos.

The device has a processor that is twice as powerful as its predecessor, resulting in better image quality. It is also waterproof down to 40m.

A variety of mounts available lets him strap the camera to his chest, clip it to his bicycle or even attach it to his surfboard to ride with him.

Parrot Bebop Drone
$719, from Apple Store Singapore

To keep things fresh between you and your partner, try out new activities together.

How about learning to fly a drone?

For beginners, Parrot's latest Bebop drone hits the sweet spot between cheap, toy-like drones and expensive, prosumer models.

More importantly, the Bebop's plastic body is lightweight and less likely to break up if you send it crashing into a wall. As an extra safety measure, the propellers are designed to stop upon collision.

He can fly the Bebop using an app on his phone or tablet (iOS and Android). The app can also upload flight videos from the drone's camera to YouTube.

A separate controller is available for purchase if he is really into it.

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism
$299

Tired of the speakers blaring endlessly during his interminable gaming sessions?

Get him a pair of SteelSeries' top-of-the-line gaming headsets.

The Siberia Elite Prism is a step up from its previous iteration. It has an upgraded in-line mic and improved self-adjusting headband.

The plush leatherette cushioning and illuminated rings from the Siberia Elite are also found in this model.

The Siberia Elite Prism offers 7.1 channel audio, letting him detect every gunshot and that sneaky opponent trying to creep up on him during an intense firefight.

The SteelSeries Engine 3 adds a level of customisation. It lets him tweak the audio channels - perfect for switching from gaming to music or a movie.

Silo Mesh Card
$96, available at hipvan.com

The Silo Mesh Card is a radio-frequency identification (RFID) shield that protects credit cards from skimming devices. Only 1.5mm thick, it can be tucked into a wallet easily.

The Mesh Card can be used as a stand-alone wallet. Its removable silicone band can hold currency notes and credit cards.

Made of titanium with a scratch-resistant coating, the card is built to withstand daily knocks and bumps.

In a pinch, it even works as a bottle opener for that beer in the fridge. Or a smartphone stand to prop up his Apple iPhone 5 or Samsung Note 3 to watch his favourite Youtube videos.

Under Armour SpeedForm Gemini
$199

Picture a shoe that he wears like a skintight sock; a shoe that sticks to him so like a second skin that when his foot moves, the shoe does, too.

Yet, it still provides plenty of freedom of movement, and offers exceptional support for any activity. And it has a design that is simply breathtaking.

Better known for its line of athletic apparel, Under Armour started making shoes a while back. These are not your regular running shoes in loud colours.

Like its clothes, Under Armour uses material that conforms to your body and gives it plenty of support.

And in case you are wondering, yes, Under Armour uses the same material and manufacturing techniques for its shoes as it does for its bras.

The SpeedForm Gemini's sole is of a foam that is sturdy enough for running, but has enough give to hold his foot in place without causing discomfort.

If your guy is in the market for something functional and aesthetically pleasing, the SpeedForm Gemini is one of the best sports shoes in the market.
