New stands for the Apple Watch
This week’s roundup of accessories offers three new ways to charge up your Apple Watch—and just two of them also including docking stations for the iPhone.
The $69 Charging Station offers docking spots for both your iPhone and Apple Watch—and it also make a heck of a nightlight, using an LED bulb that helps you find your way in your dark, dark bedroom.
The $30 HotShot was created “when we observed skateboarders, snowboarders, and filmers clinching their phones dangerously between their fingertips while trying to shoot in their extremely fast-paced environments.” The HotShot lets users keep a tight grip on their iPhones was still creating exciting, cool videos.
The $48 Gooseneck Lazy Mount comes in two different sizes—64 cm and 73 cm—and can display iOS devices with screens ranging from 3.5 inches to 10 inches. (Basically, older iPhones to regular-sized iPads—no Pros—and everything in between.) Mount it on the floor or wall to create perfect viewing of and access to your iOS device.
Juuk’s Premium Apple Watch Bracelets range from $135 for 33mm models to $225 for the 42mm gunmetal model. All are made with 316L stainless steel; 42mm models are available now, while 38mm versions will ship in January.
The $35 iPhone 6 Desk Stand is a “solid one pound, wedge shaped, acrylic work-base with outer silicone rings that provides a sure-grip surface.” While most of MacGadgets’ accessories are designed for stores, schools, and other institutional uses, this is one that you can actually use at your own desk or bedside.
The $31 Charging Apple Watch Dock with iPhone Stand is a bamboo dock for both your Apple Watch and your iPhone. There are cable cut-outs so your devices can be displayed without an unsightly tangle of cords; the iPhone portion of the station is designed to accommodate the iPhone 5 and later.
The $50 Selfie Case lights up your face with rows of LED bulbs facing in from the touchscreen side of your iPhone. The case has its own built-in battery, so you don’t need to worry about draining your phone’s battery while you’re sitting for self-made self-portraits.
The $60 Wireless Bluetooth Speakers include a 4,000-mAh battery that provides six hours of playback. The device features two 10-watt speakers, each with a bass radiator, to create a rich, deep sound.
The $30 Apple Watch Wall Stand “will allow you to charge your watch on any wall socket while neatly storing the MagSafe cable.” It’s made of PVC and plugs directly into a wall socket.
