Take Advantage of the Great Singapore Sale (6.6 to 7.7)

The Great Singapore Sale is back (6.6 to 7.7) and it is the best time to get that Father’s Day gift! From productivity to comfort and leisure; health and fitness tracking to hygiene care, Ximple has got your back. Read on for a list of gift ideas - not to be missed - in this time of great sale!

1) Productivity and Fitness - Samsung Galaxy Watch3/ Apple Watch 6



Samsung Galaxy Watch3

Sometimes we get stuck in long, dreary meetings whilst elsewhere family or other colleagues may need to relay urgent messages. Smart watches give us a way to discreetly check for notifications or even incoming calls without having to pull out a phone. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch3 even allows you to pick up calls or send quick replies.

Other features include being waterproof up to 5 ATM, able to track 40 different workout modes, and having NFC for contactless payments (it works like PayWave). For those who enjoy listening to music while working out or commuting, Samsung also included 8 GB of storage for when you want to work out without carrying a phone.

In terms of health tracking, the Galaxy Watch3 packs an ECG and blood pressure monitor on top of the standard heart rate and blood oxygen monitors. Samsung has also been known for their top-notched sleep tracking which could help Dad get better sleep at night. There is even a fall detection feature that sends emergency alerts to Dad’s emergency contacts if it detects a fall.

Oh, did we mention that the Samsung Galaxy Watch3 is also probably the most aesthetic smartwatch out there?

Apple Watch 6

By far, one of - if not the best (general use) smartwatch currently available. What’s more to say?

Budget Alternative - Xiaomi Mi Watch/ Apple Watch SE



Xiaomi Mi Watch

If Dad doesn’t require all the fancy smartwatch features, the Xiaomi Mi watch is an affordable alternative that is far cheaper with excellent sleep and fitness tracking. It has 117 sport modes, GPS and a 16 day battery life (that is exceptionally long even compared to high-end smartwatches).

Apple Watch SE

If the Apple Watch 6 is a little too pricey, consider the Apple Watch SE! It traddes the ECG monitor, always-on display and advanced SP02 tracking for sleep in return for a significant saving.

2) Comfort and Leisure - Ogawa Mysofa Luxe

Given how much stress recent times have been, we are all in need of a good relaxation. On top of that, if dad is a frontline worker, being out all day can bring about all kinds of aches; sitting in an office chair (be it at home or in office) can also cause many posture related aches and pains. The Ogawa Mysofa Luxe is a massage chair that soothes the whole body from neck and shoulders, to the back, hips and thighs. It even provides 3D surround sound for your music and a smart and intuitive human touch to its massage rollers. It’s so comfortable, you can sleep in it!

Budget Alternative - Ogawa Estilo Prime X, Mobile Shiatsu LITE, Ez Wave Lite, Omknee 2 and more!

For this we tried hard to find a single recommendation but quickly realised it would only be fair to tell you that Ogawa is having a storewide Father’s Day promotion. From foot massager, to something for dad’s back, his neck tension or even headaches, Ogawa has something for everyone.

3) Health and Hygiene - Philips UV-C Disinfection Desk Lamp

What better way to express your love for a parent than to take good care of their health and hygiene? Put your mind at ease with the Philips UV-C Disinfection Desk Lamp. Simply set the UV-C lamp on any surface in the room, set the timer (15 minutes for a small room; 30 for bedrooms; 45 for larger rooms) then leave the room for the duration to come back to a fully disinfected room. The lamp deactivates all sorts of germs, including: viruses, bacteria, mould and fungi. Channel News Asia has even reported that it “degrades coronavirus quickly”. To make the lamp extra safe for loved ones and pets, the lamp also has in-built sensors to detect people and animals to avoid exposing them to the UV-C rays.

Budget Alternative - Mistral Cutlery Steriliser Lamp and Midea Disinfection Cabinet

 

Unlike previous categories, these options aren’t alternatives so much as additional options, because a clean room does not replace having clean cutlery and dishes, especially since we eat with these. If anything, these are even more important, as nothing replaces a peace of mind.

Mistral Cutlery Steriliser Lamp

If you are looking to sterilise your cutlery, the Mistral Cutlery Steriliser Lamp comes at an affordable price of S$25 as of writing (prices may differ depending on the retailers).

Midea Disinfection Cabinet

The Midea Disinfection Cabinet which can be used for dishes also has a huge discount.

4) Fitness, Productivity and Audio - Jabra Elite 85

Though they aren’t the best in sound quality like the Sennheiser Momentum 2, the most savvy like the AIrpods Pro, or the quietest active noise-cancelling (ANC) earbuds like the Sony WF-1000XM3, the Jabra Elite 85T is one of the best all-rounders. Not only is it almost as good as the best in sound quality, functionality and ANC, the Jabra Elite 85T is compact and ergonomic, making it fit well in any condition. Add that to it’s IPX4 water resistant rating and you get a pair of Earbuds perfect for workouts and listening to music on the go. It also has a battery life that beats both the Sony’s and the Apple’s.

The most important reason for this recommendation, however, is the savings you get for the Jabra Elite 85T during this sale period.

While 2 generations old, the Jabra Elite 65T still has pretty decent sound quality and active noise-cancellation. It also has good and clear microphones for the working dad who may need to take calls anytime anywhere. Most of all, given its current price, it is perhaps one of the best value-for-money earbuds on the market.

5) Productivity and Leisure - iPad Pro (2021)/ Galaxy Tab S7+


Tablets have come a long way since their inception and have since occupied a unique position. They are handy, all-purpose devices capable of being both a more portable, productivity workhorse, and a larger medium for entertainment and consuming content. Work or play, tablets can do it all.

iPad Pro (2021)

2021 brings a new version of the iPad Pro with the latest M1 chip, elevating the iPad Pro’s performance to that of a capable laptop. Being up to 50% faster in overall performance, and having a 40% improvement in graphics performance over last year's iPad Pro, the current generation is both astounding and future proof. The Liquid Retina XDR display delivers unprecedented colours exceeding that of even some 4k TVs and reaches a peak brightness of 1600 nits. Truly mind blowing.

Galaxy Tab S7+

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ is the most capable Android productivity tablet on the market. On top of being the first android tablet with 5G capability, it is also a performance powerhouse, coming close to the iPad Pro. Alongside the new S-pen which is more comfortable and provides a smoother writing experience, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ is perfect for multitasking and working on.

Budget Alternative - iPad Pro (2020)/ Galaxy Tab A7 



iPad Pro (2020)

With the introduction of a new generation comes the lowering of prices for the previous generation. Without the M1 chip, the older iPad Pro is far less powerful but also much more affordable. Given that Apple has always been the king of tablets, the previous generation of iPads are still pretty decent and would definitely make a worthy gift!

Galaxy Tab A7 (The best, budget option)

If all the jazz of flagship tablets are just not up your alley, consider this budget tablet. While it cannot replace a laptop, it is certainly more than adequate for entertainment purposes. With brilliant colours and a price tag that is far more affordable than any entry-level iPad, it works just as well for watching videos and reading books and articles.
