The round base keeps the charger in the center. It can also lift up, letting the Apple Watch charge in nightstand mode — good for bedside alarm clock-style charging, and for watch bands that won’t open flat.
At $79, £65 or AU$129, the Magnetic Charging Dock isn’t cheap. Most third-party Apple Watch charging accessories cost less, but many make you BYO Apple Watch charger to coil inside. At least this dock comes with the mechanism built in.
We’ll be getting one at the office to try out: stay tuned for future impressions.
