Happy Father's Day, tubs!

Updated May 2017: Father's Day is right around the corner. Get Dad something he'll love (and actually use)!

Father's Day is quickly approaching, and if you notice your dad's getting a little round in the mid-section... and everywhere else, then a Fitbit might be a great way to help him kickstart a fitness regime. Or, if your pop is already a fitness fanatic, then why not give him something to help him enjoy his jog/gym time even more?

Here are the best Fitbits for men to help you pick out the right one for dear ol' Dad.

Best Fitbit for the jogging gentleman

Us dudes, bro, we like to run. After babes, after food trucks, after our feelings (just kidding, we run away from those. Stereotypes, am I right?!). We sometimes like to run with our Fitbits on. Which Fitbit is best for these occasions?

Fitbit Charge 2

Fitbit Charge 2

The Charge 2 is Fitbit's has replaced the old Charge HR and makes some major improvements in some key areas. The Charge still comes with Fitbit's built-in PurePulse technology, which monitors and reports your heart rate while you're on the go. Plus, it can still monitor you're sleeping, so feel free to take that post-jog afternoon nap.

You don't have to pull out your smartphone to check the time or see who's calling you because the Charge 2 has you covered with a tap-activated OLED display, which is much larger now, that will show you the time of day and call notifications as they come through.

When you're in the zone and hitting the last mile before you reach home, you don't want the distraction of having to whip out your phone to see who's calling and/or how long you've been running. Get the Charge 2 and keep going!

Best Fitbit for weight-lifting and sports-playing sirs

If Dad's out getting his swell on and super serial about shredding, or if he's hitting the links or the baseball diamond, he needs a Fitbit that can keep up with him.

Fitbit Surge

Fitbit Surge

The Fitbit Surge is Fitbit's mightiest model and if Dad wants to become Earth's Mightiest Mortal, then may we suggest Fitbit's mightiest model?

The Surge has it all: GPS tracking, heart rate monitor, and, most importantly, Multi-Sport and SmartTrack. With those last two, Fitbit has presets for various types of sports and workouts, so you can tell your Surge exactly what you're doing. This way, it can be as accurate as possible, and it won't be counting all your sweet biceps curls as steps.
