Best Buy Wants to Make Your Dad a HERO This Father’s Day



The other day I took the family for a bike ride at Rockland Lake. It happened to be a gorgeous day out and shockingly was fairly empty.

There’s a huge lake you can fish or boat in, with roughly a three-mile trail circling the entire lake. Generally on the weekends, the path is packed with joggers, walkers, rollerbladers and cyclists. The rest of the park area is full of people enjoying picnics, blasting music, playing soccer and just having an all-around good time.

But like I said, this past weekend, it was fairly empty. So we got to really let loose and bike around the lake a couple of times. I actually had my iPhone with me and started recording a video of Jason, Ryan and Allie biking up ahead of me. I gave general commentary about the park and tossed a few questions towards Ryan or Jason as I passed them.

Unfortunately, it’s an iPhone. So while the quality’s pretty good, it’s super duper bouncy since I was holding the phone with one hand and my bike with the other. Luckily I didn’t fall off or worse… ride right into the lake itself!

I was halfway around the lake when it hit me. I really could use a helmet cam! Or more specifically a slick GoPro camera!

If you’re unfamiliar with GoPros, they’re fantastic digital action cameras that you can mount onto things, like your bike’s handlebars or even your helmet, to add the perfect first-person perspective to your videos! Since Father’s Day is just a few weeks away (hint hint, Allie), I can’t think of a better present… er, item to talk about!


Best Buy is actually a great place to snag yourself a GoPro and they’ve even got the spiffy new GoPro HERO + LCD! What’s so super cool about it? Glad you asked!

  • 1080p60 video
  • 8MP photos
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Convenient touch display
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connect to the GoPro app for shot preview, total camera control and easy social sharing to Facebook, Instagram and more

Oh yeah. It’s also waterproof! So you could even take it surfing with you for some spectacular shots! Of course, I’d need to learn how to surf first.
