Together with the beginning of pre-orders for the Apple Watch last month, Mophie revealed the Watch Dock, a $60 aluminum mean the Apple Enjoy with leather accents and also secluded cord storage space. It took a bit longer compared to the original estimation of April 24 for the Watch Dock to launch, but it’s now shipping out to the first set of pre-order clients as well as Mophie has actually supplied us with one for screening purposes.
The Watch Dock is extremely uncomplicated, with the box consisting of simply the stand and also a quick start guide highlighting how you can route your existing Apple Watch asking for wire via the stand. A circular cutout on top of the stand holds the inductive wall charger, with the cable being supplied through a rubber-enclosed network along the within the stand’s arm, disappearing into the base and also out the back.
The wire administration system provides a tidy try to find the stand as well as the design makes it very easy to place an Apple Enjoy with either a bent or a typical band for asking for. The tilted layout of the stand makes it optimal for placement on a night table or desk where a periodic look could be necessary.
Leather accent pads around the battery charger as well as at the base of the stand provide a special appearance, with the top one around the battery charger assisting keep the watch from scratching against the aluminum of the stand. The natural leather pad on the base is disturbed by a rubber plug that allows the USB section of the cord to be supplied via the base. The plug detracts a little bit from the general look, but not extremely so, as it is close to the stand arm.
At under 4 ounces, Mophie’s Watch Dock is not massive. The relatively broad stand base and also the rather lightweight of the Apple Watch implies it’s not susceptible to suggestioning, yet the weight of a lengthy asking for cable could often pull on the stand a little bit depending upon how the cord is draped. All-time low of the Watch Stand is covered with smooth rubber to safeguard against scratches, but it won’t do significantly to hold the stand in place.
The Watch Dock measures merely over 4.5 inches high by itself, which matches the revealed measurements yet looks shorter in truth than it did in marketing photos. Some users had complained that the stand looked also high based on the marketing graphics, but the stand really appears just around right, with a loosened Milanese Loophole band hanging down and also sitting simply slightly on the base of the stand. Firmer bands such as the Sporting activity Band will certainly be held greater on the stand.
At $60, the Mophie Watch Dock isn’t really low-cost, with various other alternatives such as Griffin’s WatchStand as well as ElevationLab’s Night table being available in at around half the cost. The aluminum style as well as leather accents of the Watch Dock make for a wonderful mix that will appeal to some customers. And also it’s by no indicates the most expensive choice on the marketplace, with many noteworthy wood stands being available in at up to $100 or even more.
