Twelve South has announced the launch of its new Forté Apple Watch stand.
Forté floats Apple Watch in midair over a soft top-grain leather pad that also serves as a home base for iPhone. Compatible with all bands, including two-piece and closed loop styles, the weighted Forté securely supports Apple Watch in both Portrait and Nightstand mode.
Here's a look at the details...
Forté is the most luxurious Twelve South product to date. The weighted base mirrors the graceful, rounded edges of your Watch’s face. Rising from the base is a slender chrome arm that prominently holds Apple Watch for charging and viewing notifications, while concealing the charging cable. It perfectly compliments the stainless steel or new aluminum finishes. A genuine leather pad protects Watch bands, from the sport band to the 18-karat yellow gold Edition bands, and all those in between.
Charge your watch on Forté using your Apple charging disk. Insert the charging disk into the top of the chrome stand and route the cable down the back of the arm. This simple cable integration makes it easy and convenient to remove your cable when traveling. A polycarbonate chromed ring secures the charging disk itself and effectively shields the Apple Watch body from any possible contact with the metal construction of Forté.
Andrew Green, Creative Director at Twelve South said, “From the shape and standards, to fit and finish, Forté is the first full-featured stand that you can find in Apple Store. The simplicity of Forté directly reflects the beautiful Apple timepiece, whether it’s placed bedside or on your bathroom vanity. We are thrilled to work with Apple Store to bring this incredible stand exclusively to Apple Store customers this Holiday season.”
