Charge your Apple Watch in style and comfort.
While you don't need a stand to charge your Apple Watch, it can be both a lovely and practical addition to your bedside table or dresser. A great stand not only displays your watch and band while you're not wearing it, it also helps hide unsightly charging wires and lets you interact with features like Nightstand mode.
If you're in the market for an Apple Watch stand, here are our top picks.
Twelve South Forté
Twelve South's Forté offers a sleek design and top-notch quality for displaying and charging your Apple Watch: Its angled chrome stand lets your smartwatch easily hang in any direction, all while hiding the charging cord inside the curved rear support. Those curves also help keep your band curled and contained while your watch charges, and a smooth leather base offers a place to rest your iPhone at night, too (if you charge both in the same place).
Studio Neat Material Dock
Looking for a two-in-one solution for your desk or nightstand? Studio Neat's gorgeous Material Dock lets you charge both your Apple Watch and iPhone on an elevated circular wooden base with cork backing. The Dock intentionally sits the Watch on its side for easy access to its buttons in Nightstand mode, letting your iPhone snooze away behind it. Adding cords to the Dock requires a little bit of setup and a screwdriver, but the end result is a great-looking stand and hidden charging cables.
Belkin Valet Charge Dock
Don't want to BYO cables? Belkin's two-in-one Valet Charge Dock integrates both an Apple Watch charger and iPhone Lightning port in its sleek chrome-and-aluminum base, with a single white cable that supplies power. The stand angles both the Apple Watch and iPhone to provide ideal bedside viewing angles, and elevates the Apple Watch to allow your band to hang freely on both sides. You can even color match your dock with your Watch and iPhone if you happen to be a rose gold or silver fan.
Twelve South TimePorter
Traveling with your Apple Watch? TwelveSouth's TimePorter is one of the best ways you can do so, offering a sunglasses-style synthetic leather case with a charging port atop it. Open it up, and you'll access a compartment for storing Apple Watch bands and your charging cable alike. Better still, the TimePorter offers a spool to tame and control your Apple Watch charging cable, keeping it organized no matter where you travel.
Pad and Quill Luxury Pocket Stand
If you want a slightly classier look while you travel, Pad and Quill's Luxury Pocket Stand offers a foldable hardwood charging stand to hold and display your watch. Inspired by Pad and Quill founder Brian Holmes's grandfather and his pocket watch, the Luxury Pocket Stand was designed to resemble an old-world watch display for new-age tech. It hides the Apple Watch's charging cable within the stand, and provides a wedge shape when folded to coil your cord around the base while traveling. You can even color match the stand to your preferred style of wood: Cherry, Walnut, or Mahogany.
Sena Watch Case & Stand
Rounding out the on-the-go stand styles, Sena's Watch Case provides a squat cylindrical leather carrying case for travel, while the top can be removed and flipped to provide an easy charging station for your Apple Watch. Like the TimePorter, Sena offers hooks to wrap your Apple Watch charger inside the case, allowing you to easily travel with the cord. When you're ready to pack up, simply unplug from your charging source and reassemble the case for safe travel.
