20+ Apple Watch Docks – The Best So Far

The Apple Watch is reported to last only a day on a full charge (although there are reports saying that that may be an optimistic estimate), so if you are a power user on the iPhone, you probably might want to invest in a good Apple Watch dock for regular charging sessions.

We did the legwork and dug up some of the best Apple Watch dock (also known as the Apple Watch stand to some of you) designs the Web has to offer so far. It’s still early days so some of these docks are still in the production and crowdfunding stages, but that doesn’t mean they might not be sitting on your desk one day.

Here are some of the best Apple Watch Docks you should check out while waiting for your Apple Watch to get delivered.

1. WatchStand

Here’s a stand that takes into account how flexible your Apple Watch band is. You can choose to leave your Watch horizontally or vertically on the stand. Both orientations are angled in a way where you can see the watch face at all times.

The cable is wound up and stored away from view, hidden inside the pole section of the stand. The base is designed to hold your iPhone should you require a dock for it too. The stand is about 8 inches tall and weighs only 18 ounces.
