Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock Launched

If the magnetic charging cable for the Watch isn't enough for you, Apple's got a whole new dock

There are a wide variety of Apple Watch stands and docks available these days, but that hasn't stopped Apple from releasing one of the company's very own. It's shaped like a saucer and can charge an Apple Watch either flat or in nightstand mode. The magnetic charging dock is a round disk with a soft-touch material on top to keep your watch safe and a suede-style material on the bottom to protect your bedside table or desk. White both. At its center is a standard Apple Watch magnetic charger, also white, but trimmed in stainless steel. Apple has unveiled the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock. Priced at $79, the wireless charging dock is currently up for pre-orders from the company website and would start shipping in the US from November 20.

Plug the included 2 meter (6-foot) Lightning cable into the dock and into either the USB port on your Mac or Windows PC, or into a USB adapter, sold separately, and you're ready to charge. All you have to do is lay your Apple Watch down flat on top of the charger or, flip it up and charge in nightstand mode. The hinge is really well engineered and goes into place and stays there. The magnetic connection is strong so, while you can pull your Apple Watch off easily enough, it won't slide down or off on its own. And because the magnetic charging dock is flat, you won't knock it over by accident the way you might a standing dock. Whether you like the design or the color will ultimately be a personal, subjective thing. The choice of a disk shape and white and stainless steel palette does meant that it's solid, stable, and fades away letting your Apple Watch be the star.

The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock allows users to charge the wearable device keeping it flat on the dock or sideways. Keeping the smartwatch sideways would trigger the device's nightstand mode, which arrived with watchOS 2. The wireless charging dock is meant to make it simpler for users, who now only have to place the watch on the dock in order to charge it.

The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is white, circular, and appears to be made of plastic with a magnetic charging puck in the centre. The dock uses a 2-metre long Lightning to USB power cable to get power. However, Apple Watch users would still need a USB power adapter to connect it with a wall outlet. The accessory is compatible with both 38mm and 42mm watchcases.

The Apple Watch this month launched in India with a starting price of Rs. 30,900 (38mm) and ₹34,900 (42mm). The wearable comes in Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch, and Apple Watch Edition variants. The base model price of the 38mm Apple Watch Sport is ₹30,900 (Silver Aluminium Case with White Sport Band), while the Apple Watch starts at ₹48,900 (Stainless Steel Case with White Sport Band), and Apple Watch Edition at ₹8,20,000 (18-Carat Rose Gold Case with White Sport Band).
