Apple makes a fair number of its own product accessories, but until now its only charger for the Apple Watch was the magnetic puck-with-cable that comes with the watch itself. Wireless charging is a nice option to have but it’s far from the big innovation so many people like to claim it is. The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is Apple’s own, more elegant solution for a desk or bedside table, and it’s now on sale at the Apple Store.
The round base keeps the charger in the center. It can also lift up, letting the Apple Watch charge in nightstand mode — good for bedside alarm clock-style charging, and for watch bands that won’t open flat.
At $79, £65 or AU$129, the Magnetic Charging Dock isn’t cheap. Most third-party Apple Watch charging accessories cost less, but many make you BYO Apple Watch charger to coil inside. At least this dock comes with the mechanism built in.
The dock comes with a lightning to USB cable, but it looks like you’ll have to use the USB power adapter that came with your Apple Watch to connect it to a wall outlet, as one is not included with the dock. You can purchase the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock online today, and in Apple stores on November 20th.
