Aluminum charging stand will elevate your Apple Watch [Reviews]

Lust List: Aluminum Apple Watch charging station by Satechi

I’ve got an Apple Watch problem. I need to keep it charged up, but it continually gets lost in the clutter on my dresser.

You might tell me to just clean up the top of my bedroom furniture, but I like that my new solution allows me to elevate my Apple Watch above the mess. The Satechi aluminum charging stand for Apple Watch keeps my wrist computer charged up and ready to go without getting lost in the cruft of my bureau’s disarray.

Satechi has made a stand that conveniently holds the Apple Watch charging cord in place, with a top piece that lets a clasped Apple Watch band loop around it while charging. It’s no more complex than that: I just slide the circular charging base into the top area and feed the cord through the base’s cable-holding areas and out the side to plug into the USB port I typically use to charge my Apple Watch.

The Gold stand I received for testing matches the gold on the back of my girlfriend’s iPad Pro, making it obvious that it would also match a gold-colored Apple Watch, as well. Satechi offers a Silver and a Space Gray stand, as well. The Gold still looks pretty spiffy with my own Sport Apple Watch attached; the brushed-aluminum finish on both watch and stand fit together nicely.

Durable and affordable

The stand is heavy enough at the bottom to keep my Apple Watch in place, but light enough not to score the wooden surface of my dresser or any nightstand I might want to transfer it to eventually. It holds the watch at a comfortable viewing angle, though it does not allow for nightstand mode. That’s fine by me, as I already keep my iPhone by the bed to know what time it is during the night.

The price tag is pretty great here, too, as you get a durable, useful brushed-aluminum charging stand for your Apple Watch for $20. I can see grabbing a couple of these stands to use around the house, or to take along while traveling.

If nothing else, I don’t have to search through the various coins, guitar picks and wallet ephemera on my dresser anymore when looking for my Apple Watch. The Satechi aluminum charging stand does the trick for me, elevating my Apple Watch enough to be seen while keeping its battery charged and ready to go when I am.

Price: $19.99

Nice band. Worked well. Need to be sure to watch the video on using the tool to adjust the band.

never receive my purchase

I contacted the store but they never replayed to me i don't recommend to buy here!

Sadie, the elder, says .....

Not only is this iWatch such a practical means of holding my watch while charging, it’s a hoot - looks like my original Mac. I love it.

The case doesn’t totally align but it does it’s job. The part that stinks is that it attracts lint and dust because it’s silicone.

Great tidy solution

You know what happens, all your devices need a charger. 2 iPhones, an Apple Watch, iPad and more. My old solution was fast charger with 4 USB outlets plugged in to an outlet in the kitchen. Worked, but not pretty.

Let me start by saying this charger looks great. I got rid of all the other cables and keep this out in the kitchen. Much tidier! Phones charge quickly. Apple watch does too but you to be careful that it goes on right. Also, I have a metal band on mine so I have to close it before I put it on the stand or else it would rest on the screen of the phone below it.
