With the increasing popularity of the Apple Watch, here’s a list of the top 10 best Apple Watch Stands for you to consider, including combo Apple Watch & iPhone cradle chargers.
Whether you own an Apple watch (or iWatch as some call it) yourself or know someone who does, there is one issue that users have to deal with and that’s keeping the Apple Watch charged up. Just like your electric vehicle or Tesla that you plug in and charge every night, you’ll also want to charge your Apple watch overnight. The next morning, just grab it and zoom to work, knowing that you have a full charge for the whole day so you can get your job done.
What is an Apple Watch Stand?
Like with many luxury watches, a watch stand is where you put your watch when not using it, such as at the end of the night before going to bed. Your Apple Watch is also like a piece of fine luxury jewelry and you should treat it as such. A watch stand is designed to cradle your watch, say on your dresser or nightstand. This beats throwing it on your desk with all the other junk where it can get scratched.
Normally, the Apple Watch stand is designed to hold the charger and wire, so you don’t have to fuss with the cables. It holds it in just the right position so your watch gets maximum charge from proper electro-coupling. These stands are typically sleek design that looks great on any surface.
What are the different types of Apple Watch Stands?
When looking to buy an Apple Watch stand, the first question to ask yourself is if you just want a cradle for your Apple Watch alone, or whether you own an iPhone and would like a combo charger that can hold both your Watch and iPhone. This just depends on your needs. As you’ll see in the top 10 list below, we’ve broken it into two groups, the combo charger and the single Apple Watch Stand.
How to Choose the Best Apple Watch Stand?
There are certain key features that you want to look for. First of all, most of these stands typically require you to supply your own Apple Watch charger. As far as the iPhone charging part, that is usually built into the cradle itself, which is a really useful feature to have. Next, there’s the material choice, some come in wood, plastic, metal, or some combination, and it depends on what look you want. Lastly, if you travel there’s some models that fold and pack up, which would be right for you.
With these tips in mind, here’s our recommendations for you of the Top 10 Best Apple Watch Stands and combo Apple Watch/iPhone chargers in 2016. One of these might be a good choice for you, or as a gift for your special person.
