Mighty mounts

This week's roundup features several new stands and mounts for the Apple Watch. Just because your watch isn't on your wrist doesn't mean it can't look nice. Read on!



The Tube is a $273 Bluetooth speaker built of copper-plated steel. It offers eight hours of music playback when fully charged and can relay audio from a source within a 7-meter range. If you have a kitchen full of copper pots, it’ll fit right in.



The $88 Wooden Gadget Stand is made of maple and lets you dock both your iPhone and your iPad, as well as a pen. It’s an elegant way to keep your desk organized and your iOS devices in sight.




The $20 Ultra Thin Case for the Apple Watch is exactly what it sounds like—a protective case for your new devices “measuring just .5 mm thin.” It snaps into place without the need to remove the wristband and leaves the digital crown accessible.



The Epik “transforms the Apple Watch into a ruggedly refined companion more suited for the abuse your everyday active lifestyle dishes out. Obsessively designed to protect the Apple Watch, it provides enhanced tactile control and unobstructed access to the watch’s sensor and features.” It comes in a $60 polycarbonate version and a $140 aluminum version.



The $15 Apple Watch Grip Mount is made for when you want to see your Apple Watch, but don’t want to leave it on your wrist. One place to mount it? Your car’s steering wheel.



The SnapPower Charger replaces the old-fashioned electrical outlets in your house with somethng better: An outlet that features two plug-ins for traditional electrical devices and a USB port for your electronics. The makers say it “installs in seconds,” provided you have a scewdriver and a good attitude.

The Hyperion earbuds are billed as the “smallest and lightweight universal in-ear monitors available," weighing in at a mere 13 grams. It comes packed in an all-aluminum driver setting for a stylish, futuristic look.



The Wristouch collection of bands features a wide variety of options for the new Apple Watch owner—bands are available in mesh, stainless steel, and rubber, as well as a variety of colors and styles, ranging from $49 to $119.



It’s still in the Kickstarter stage, but you might want to check out the Xylum, an Apple Watch charging stand machined out of aluminum and shaped like a short tube. Pledge $49 and you can do two good things: help the makers meet their production goals and get yourself the Xylum stand.
