As the noise begins to die down from Monday’s Apple Watch announcement, we’re seeing a number of accessory makers reveal solutions for charging and storing the timepiece. These Apple Watch docks serve to both charge your Apple Watch each night, and provide a suitably stylish display area for your watch.
The stand is compatible with all versions of the Apple Watch and provides an "easy viewing angle" when charging. The pedestal will also accommodate both a vertical and horizontal orientation, allowing personal preference to each user laying their Watch on the stand to charge.
The base of the WatchStand features an angled lip that holds your phone at an angle, letting it rest against the post. Your iPhone will, of course, need its own charger. The stand will be available this summer for $29.99.
The HiRise for the Apple Watch bears a similar design to the company's impressive iPhone dock in that it offers an elevated view of your device whilst it is being charged. The HiRise for the Apple Watch has been designed to work with any model of the Apple Watch and strap combination and features the same elegant and sturdy all-metal design as the original HiRise for iPhone so you can also continue to interact with your Apple Watch when it's being charged.
The stand is made from genuine Californian walnut and tanned leather, providing a classy traditional look. The stand is elegantly formed to hold the Watch in an elevated position, allowing you to show off your choice of case and band without revealing a clumsy charging mechanism. The base is made from solid steel for stability, so you’ll be assured a perfect platform for your desk, side table or nightstand. This relic, handcrafted in San Franciso, is available on pre-order now for just shy of £60.
It’s made from aluminum, which we know Apple has a love affair with. There will be a circular cutout at the back where users will be able to place the Apple Watch’s magnetic charger. The small cutout at the base will also allow one of the straps to slide under it.
Calypso’s Timeless Moment is thus far the most luxurious of such stands, handcrafted of premium Italian leather in Europe and assembled to exacting precision. The arch smartly integrates with the Apple Watch’s charger and cable, following its curvature nigh invisibly. Just drop your watch onto it and inbuilt magnets will hold it solidly until it’s fully fuelled and ready to take on another day.
