Traveling with Apple Watch is a fairly simple affair: strap on your watch and go.
Traveling with all the extra accessories, however, is a serious pain in the butt. There’s that 6-foot charging cable, for one, which always manages to get tangled up in my bag. Add extra Apple Watch bands and a wall plug, and you’ve got some serious carry, and we haven’t even mentioned dealing with the watch when you aren’t wearing it.
Twelve South has an answer to this conundrum, and it’s called TimePorter.
Essentially a sunglasses case kitted out for your precious wrist computer, TimePorter has several delightful features that will let you gather and transport your essential Apple Watch accessories when you travel.
There’s a hole in the top of the case that nestles the round part of the Apple Watch charging cable, letting the charging part face outward. When you’re not using the charging circle, there’s a soft, silicone cap that closes the case up for travel.
You can drape your Apple Watch across this magnetic circle in either direction. If you drape it horizontally and then open the top part of the case, you’ll enable the nightstand function on your Apple Watch, letting the case become integral to your sleep/wake routine while on the road.
Inside the TimePorter is a soft, silicone design in which to wrap around that long USB cable once you’ve installed it in the hole above. The cable is kept in place with various clips, knobs, and cable pass-throughs that let you pull out enough cable to charge your Apple Watch on the case itself, connecting to a wall plug that easily fits in the central well of the TimePorter’s interior.
You can also drop in a couple of extra Apple Watch bands for when you’re feeling the urge to swap out your current band for a night on the town or a quick run before breakfast. Heck, if you have a little portable USB charger battery, drop that right in there and connect the Apple Watch charging cable to it for some juice when away from a wall plug. Camping, anyone?
All in all, the TimePorter is a streamlined-looking, functional Apple Watch accessory case that lets you manage all the stuff you need to keep your Apple Watch functioning on vacation or business trips. It slips into a bag easily, thanks to the sunglasses-case size and shape, and will really add to your Apple Watch accessory management game.
