Griffin has announced the Griffin WatchStand, the first accessory in their new line of products for Apple Watch. This simple yet elegant charging and display dock provides a safe, secure place to charge Apple Watch when it's not being worn.
“The introduction of the Apple Watch ushers in what is bound to be the next generation of wearable technology,” said Mark Rowan, President of Griffin Technology. “Griffin has long been at the forefront of developing solutions for Apple’s newest devices and we’re continuing that legacy with our WatchStand charging dock for Apple Watch.”
WatchStand displays Apple Watch on a sleek pedestal, and can be placed on any nightstand, tabletop or desktop for convenient daily charging. WatchStand houses the Apple-provided magnetic charging cable in an angled cradle that keeps it ready to charge at all times. For initial assembly, the user simply feeds the magnetic cable through the center of the post, and then, to charge each day, lays the Apple Watch against the cradle. The magnetic connector gently snaps itself onto the back of the watch and begins charging.
The versatile WatchStand is compatible with all versions of the Apple Watch and holds it at an easy viewing angle as it charges. Accommodating both semi-flexible and fully flexible bands, WatchStand securely displays and charges Apple Watch vertically or horizontally for the perfect view.
Since Apple Watch and iPhone go hand in hand, WatchStand’s weighted base has a home for a phone as well. The raised lip on the front of the dock holds the phone at the perfect angle for easy viewing. WatchStand also solves cable management problems, with a grooved post for extra cord length to wrap neatly around, keeping tabletops uncluttered, and the charge cable from becoming crimped or tangled.
