1:35 /

From gadgets to improve dad's golf game to a lawn-mowing robot, CNET's Sumi Das has some high-tech gift suggestions that are sure to stand out.

[MUSIC] If you're tired of giving ties on Fathers Day, imagine how dear old dad must feel. Take the nontraditional route this year and go high tech. For the formal wearing fathers, these $250 cufflinks by Robbie Britton spruce up dad's duds and double as a Wi-Fi hotspot and a two gig flash drive. Download software onto your laptop then plug the hotspot into your USB port. Give dad a break from lawn duty with Kyoto America's lawn bot. This grass cutting bot can handle lawns up to 24000 square feet and should last three hours on a single charge. At $2800 it's a splurge, but dad's back will thank you. Get dad teed up for a great day of golf with the Garmin Approach S4 a $300 watch is loaded with stats on 30,000 international courses. The S4 can also display text messages and email from your iPhone. Zepp offers another golf gadget. A $150 sensor that attaches to your glove to capture and analyze your swing and even compare it to the pros. If golf isn't his game Zepp also has tennis and baseball versions. The $225 BioLite bundle will make any father a happy camper. The camp stove not only cooks up meals, it generates electricity at the same time, so you can charge your mobile devices. Use the kettle pot to boil some brew or to warm up dinner. And when you're on the go, the kettle pot makes a handy carrying case, for the stove. Happy Father's Day. In San Francisco, I'm Sumi Das, CNET.com for CBS News. [MUSIC]
