Elago's latest W5 Apple Watch stand looks just like the classic Nintendo Game Boy
Elago's line of nostalgic Apple Watch stands just got a new addition to its ranks, and it's one that Nintendo fans might have a hard time resisting. Now available for purchase at Amazon and Elago's own website, the W5 Stand for Apple Watch was designed to look like the original, classic Game Boy handheld console. Even better, it comes in your choice of one of four colors. Though only the Black and Light Grey models are currently available, Red and Jin Indigo are coming soon.
The W3 Stand and W4 Stand resembled old Macintosh computers like the 1998 iMac, so it's a bit of a surprise to see the latest version inspired by another retro favorite. The W5 Stand is compatible with all series of the Apple Watch and all sizes, plus it works with the Apple Watch Nightstand Mode. Using this stand consistently can help you ensure you always know where your watch is when you're not wearing it, and there's even a cutout for your Apple Watch inductive charger. You may want to pick up a second charger if you want to have one to use with this stand permanently, as one is not included with its purchase.
Made from scratch-free silicone, this stand won't scuff up your watch and also keeps it from sliding around while on a desk or another surface. A one-year warranty is included too. If you're ready to get your hands on your own, Amazon offers the best price on the W5 Stand currently ($14.99), though Prime shipping is not available on the item. That means you'll be stuck paying a small shipping fee, and that's also the case on Elago's website where it's priced at $15.99. Shipping on its website starts at $5.99, or you can earn free shipping by getting your order total above $25.
