First in our list, here’s a wireless powerbank with 2000mAh lithium polymer battery that can offer up to four full charges for your Apple Watch. There is round cut-out for the magnetic charging cable in the center where you can place your watch for charging.

There’s a microUSB port and three LEDs at the back of the dock that indicate current charge level. It’s a nice one-piece dock however, you have to assemble your charging cable within the dock which is a bit of hassle so it’s better to keep a spare cable and devote one for the Bloc. Apart from wireless charging Bloc can also be used as a nightstand dock or paired with your Mac for charging.

Pros
  • Wireless charging for on the go usage.
  • Dock and portable battery in one.
Cons
  • Doesn’t come with a protective case.

Moreover, it comes with optional 3M adhesive pad the same that’s used with GoPro cameras.

  • Price: $39.95
Stand For Apple Watch

A beautifully curved Apple watch dock, Nomad’s stand is made with single piece of aluminum with a small rubber pad on the bottom. The creative design offers cable-routing channel worked into the back side of the dock that makes the cable look almost invisible.

What I found most interesting in this dock is that the charging puck is slightly elevated enabling it to have a solid contact with the watch. Moreover, the copper alloy base gives it the balance and weight it needs to keep from tripping over.

Pros
  • Aesthetically pleasing design.
  • Aircraft grade aluminum body.
Cons
  • Difficult to install cord in the cable groove.
  • No nightstand mode orientation possible.

Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock

This is an official charging dock for your Apple Watch. Keeping up with Apple’s signature minimalistic design, this dock will give you a simple look (a bit too simple I’d say) and allows you to charge your watch both horizontally as well as in the Nightstand mode.

What I found most interesting is that the magnetic charging puck comes integrated into the dock and can be popped up to work with the Nightstand mode. Moreover, it comes with an extra-long lightning cable that you need to connect with a power block (not included in the box) to get it charging.

Pros
  • Built-in charging puck.
  • Comes with an extra-long Lightning cable.
Cons
  • Available in only one color.
  • Not aesthetically impressive.

Pros
  • Charges multiple Apple devices simultaneously.
  • Comes with 2 Lightening cables.
Cons
  • Difficult to manage cables.

It is an elegantly designed dock with premium finishing. The built-in charger is tilted to displays your watch at an optimal viewing angle and you can easily slide your watch on and off the charging connector.

The suitably heavy base of this dock has been given a typical Apple-like finish along with chrome finish solid metal arm. its most interesting aspect, however, is the removable wrist band that can be used to give extra support to your watch while charging (specifically in case of heavier watch bands).

Quite similar to the Belkin Watch Valet in looks and features, Mangotek Apple Watch Charging Stand comes with integrated MFi certified Apple Watch charger. The charger has a nice design with elevated arm and a nicely weighted base.

This charging stand offers a lot of cool features but I think for such a hefty price tag they could have added a wireless charging pad to the base, however, it does come with an intelligent 2.1A USB port to charge your Apple Watch and other devices simultaneously.

Pros
  • No assembly required.
  • Built-in 2.1A USB port for charging other devices.
