Perfect for any germaphobic dad, Bril is a wearable toothbrush case that claims to use natural UV-C light to kill 99.9% of unwanted viruses and bacteria living on toothbrushes. Roughly the size of an Apple earphone case, Bril hangs on the bathroom wall (or any wall) with the included magnetic mount and charges with an included micro USB cable.
Bril is said to have killed germs at the molecular level by destroying their DNA after each use. According to the company, its 360º ultra-deep sterilization kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. The case also provides around-the-clock protection against airborne mold and dust, protecting your brush from germ buildup when not in use. A Bril currently costs $29.99. Purchasing a three-pack of Brils costs $59.99which is arguably a small price to pay for the peace of mind of any father with Covidphobia.

Prince Harry infamously popularized the Oura ring, made by Finnish health technology company Ōura Health Oy. Eagle-eyed royal watchers spotted him wearing the one given to him by Meghan Markle. Oura collects health data from the wearer’s finger like a regular activity tracker or heart rate monitor.
Although it is not the only wearable ring, it seems to emerge as the leaderthanks to unofficial royal approval.
Prince Harry was unavailable for comment. However, Law Prince Jeff Zuber, founding partner of the law firm Zuber-Lawler, purchased the Oura Gen 3 Heritage Silver ring after his FitBit failed.
“The Oura 3 would be a great gift for health-conscious dads who prefer this minimalist device over a fitness smartwatch,” Zuber said. “I prefer fewer distractions, and the ring provides zero distractions. It discreetly takes measurements that I can review when it’s convenient for me. I especially like its sleep monitoring, and it helps me stay focused on a good night’s sleep. enough and to develop better habits, such as not eating right before bed.
“Plus,” Zuber continued. “Oura has just added real-time heart rate measurement. I’ve been waiting for this feature and I’m happy to use it. Overall, I’m happy with the purchase. I would buy it again and recommend it to others.
