The Apple Watch Series 2 have been released for a few weeks now. I am lucky to have got my hands on one but for about 2 weeks I was using the box that the watch came in as a dock station. Yes, pretty low tech but I didn’t know what Apple Watch stand I should go for. After a search around I found a few but I had to narrow down to the five that I have listed below. In my opinion these are 5 of the best Apple Watch stand available on the market. Let me know what you all think.
Griffin Watch Stand: This stand is one of the sleek and must have if you own an Apple Watch. The Griffin is charges your watch effortlessly and easily. Wind excess cable length around WatchStand’s core then slide it down into the post to hide the unneeded cord for a more tidy look. The Griffin is sturdy and stylish. Retailing at £29.99, it’s quite affordable.
Apple Watch Magnetic Dock: Slightly on the more expensive side however affordable for some. At £79 the Apple Watch Magnetic Dock offers the sleek and cool look that ever Apple fan knows and loves. “With the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock, you can charge your Apple Watch in a flat position with its strap open, or on its side. When docked on its side, your watch automatically goes into Nightstand mode, so you can also use it as your alarm clock. The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock uses the same inductive charging connector that comes with Apple Watch.”
Twelve South Forté Charging Stand: If there was a fashion show for charging docks then the Twelve South Forté will no doubt take the top award. With it’s sleek sexy look the charging stand makes it pleasant to have on your desk. It’s an elegant way to charge your Apple Watch. “Perfectly angled for easy bedside viewing and use, Forté is compatible with all Apple Watch styles and works seamlessly in Nightstand mode.” At only £49.95 it’s more expensive than the original Griffin dock but still cheaper than the Apple Magnetic dock and probably looks better as well.
Just Mobile TimeStand: The design of the Just Mobile TimeStand makes it absolutely pleasing on the eye. This is the one I actually decided to go for. And the aluminium finish makes it fit right in with my Macbook Pro. “Slip your Apple Watch magnetic charger into its rubber-lined recess and TimeStand™ becomes the most iconic charging stand available. And thanks to its perfectly weighted base and high-friction rubber underside, you can easily use your Watch while its charging, too – making TimeStand™ a triumph of form and function.” Grab it for only £34.94.
Nomad Stand: This is a simple and sleek stand. It comes in the space grey or silver finish to match your other Apple products. The Nomad Stand will set you back £32.65. Seems like a high price to pay for such a minimal product but it does have a high quality finish. “Simply put, Stand for Apple Watch is a minimalist, honest charging stand for Apple Watch. It’s designed to give your watch an elevated charging experience, whether at your desk or by your bedside.”
