This one Apple Watch accessory is an essential buy this Cyber Monday

We don't see deals on the Twelve South TimePorter that are worth writing about too often but if you've been holding out for a sale, Cyber Monday is your lucky day. Amazon currently has it available for $37.49, which is close to $13 off the normal cost as well as the best deal we've seen since late August. The last time it went significantly lower than this was way back in early 2018. You'll get free shipping with your purchase today as well.


Twelve South TimePorter for Apple Watch

This compact travel case is compatible with all Apple Watch models and doubles as a charging stand. It has room inside for a charger, a power adapter, and extra bands, and there's a cable spool to keep everything tidy too.

The TimePorter has been around for a few years now, but arguably, it's still the best travel solution for Apple Watch owners. Traveling with an Apple Watch can be a huge pain. For one, the inductive charging cable is both finicky and expensive, so you want to preserve its integrity and ensure that it stays tangle-free. Add in accessories like extra Watch bands or a wall adapter, and you're left with often-expensive tech and no great way to store it all. The TimePorter offers a convenient solution to all of the above issues.

This compact travel case has plenty of space for the essentials. There's a dedicated area where you'll place your charging cable's inductive disk, plus special areas for your power adapter and extra bands. There's even a built-in spool that neatly manages your charging cable. That means you can plug your wall adapter into an AC outlet, keep the rest of the cable's length spooled tidily inside the case, and place your Apple Watch on the top of the case to charge it. The case itself is also compatible with Nightstand Mode, allowing you to lay your Watch horizontally and pop the case open to keep your tech in view while it charges.

If you're short on outlets, you could also stash a small power bank in the case to charge your Apple Watch while on the go. At Amazon, 127 customer reviews left the TimePorter with an average of 4.2 out of 5 stars. Take a look at our TimePorter hands-on for more.
