Father's Day on June 19 is always a good reminder to show dad how much you appreciate him. AT&T's Sean Mueller stopped by Sunrise 7 to show off both fun and practical gifts.


The portable wireless speaker blasts 360-degree sound with deep bass-everywhere you go. It has a waterproof grab-and-go shape that stays under two pounds. The UE MEGABOOM app can unlock an expanding set of cool additional features including a musical alarm, fully customizable 5-band EQ, and remote on/off controls.

Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge

Key features of both phones include Samsung's first dual-pixel smart phone camera with up to 200 GB of expandable memory. The S7 Edge has a 5.5-inch dual-edge display. The S7 comes in 2 colors: Gold Platinum and Black Onyx. The S7 edge is also available in Silver Titanium.

DirecTV App

Control your TV with the DirecTV app, allowing users to watch live TV or catch up on the latest movies and shows on demand.

You can start watching a program on one device - pause it - and resume watching on any other device. The app also lets you set your DVR to record any programming from anywhere.

Cobra JumPack Jump Starter/Power Pack

The compact, portable power pack contains a 7,500mAh battery with a 2.1 Amp USB output to rapidly charge any mobile device from smartphones to tablets to digital cameras. You can also jump-start your car off the same battery pack. With a starting current of 200A and 400A peak current the Cobra JumPack has enough power to jump-start most cars multiple times on a single charge. The Cobra JumPack has a built-in LED flashlight with a strobe and SOS function for emergencies. It also includes jumper cables and two different charging methods; a wall charger for home, and a 12V charger to charge your battery pack on the go.

Fitbit Blaze

The wearable device measures all-day steps, distance, calories burned, active minutes, hourly activity & stationary time. Fitbit Blaze also has a hi-res color touchscreen with a variety of clock faces to choose from.
