    Worth the Money!

    I was hesitant to spend the money on this. It does exactly what the included charger does--why would I need this one? But after months of fighting to keep the charging cable situated on my nightstand and dealing with the frustration of my watch getting knocked off while charging, I bit the bullet and bought this charger. And MAN was it worth it. It stays on my nightstand, it securely holds and charges my watch, it's stylish and compact. I could go on and on about how much I love this charger.

    Yes, they have third party docks that the OEM watch charger attaches to. Yes, a few of those have good reviews. And yes, you may be perfectly happy with one of those. But I didn't want to run the risk of ruining my charger and having to buy a new one of those. I figured $30 for a new charger (if the third party stand were to ruin it, like many reviews of third party products said) plus the price of the included lightening cable, this dock all but pays for itself. Beyond that, it's an Apple product made specifically for the watch. I knew it would be a quality product that would do a great job.

    To all those reviews who give this fewer stars because it doesn't include the wall/outlet adapter, why should it when the watch itself comes with one? This makes no sense to me. Take the cable charger you received with your Apple Watch and replace it with this charger. The end. I don't see why stars should be docked when you already have a wall/outlet adapter from the original watch purchase. That's just my two cents.

    All in all, I am so glad I decided to get this. It's perfect!

    It's ok but...

    I asked for this for Christmas last year and one of my children gave it to me.

    It works and is made by Apple, but it is only a step up from the basic charger. I'm not sure it is worth the extra money.

    For one thing it only comes in white. Come on Apple, gives us some colors like you do with the bands.

    Belkin makes a stand that hold the watch and iPhone, if it had been made by Apple I would have gone that route, but with the watch being so new to the market I was leery of 3rd party chargers. I think that was probably my loss.

    The biggest advantage this charger has is that my cat doesn't think it is a kitty toy. She was going after the charger that came with the watch just like she does my iPhone and MacBook Pro cord if not secured when not in use.

    Apple watch magnetic charging dock is simple and elegant.

    The magnetic charging dock's inconspicuous launch belies its importance as a harbinger of Apple design, which seems on course to blur the line between tech and fashion.

    Lame but well built

    You are really just buying another charger for a higher price. The watch face turns off after a minute or so.
    It is a charging stand and not a replacement for bedside clock. A well built charging stand but nightstand mode is lame.

    Apple Premier Aesthetics at its Finest!

    The dock is absolutely gorgeous! If you had a hard time noticing from the picture, it has a leather top and a felt bottom. Both very soft to the touch. The charging contact moves from the flat to the upright position with great fluidity. It is well weighted to prevent accidental knock overs and it makes charging in the dark very easy too. Highly recommended to anyone that uses their watch as an alarm clock, or just want to give it a compliment.

    Still great after 1-year

    I purchased this shortly after purchasing my watch because I was tired of chasing the stock cable around every night. The stand is elegant and like all my Apple products, performs as expected. After reading other reviews, I have racked my brain and can not remember if it came with the AC power adapter, but do know I did not have to buy one.

    Well made

    A cheapie dock I bought on eBay was top heavy and simply toppled over when I tried to position the Apple watch on it. So I decided to stick with Apple quality and buy this dock. I wasn't disappointed, it's excellent and is a nice weight with a low centre of gravity. My watch is protected while it charges, and I can use it as a bedside clock when I travel (and as a bonus, the dock is flat for easy packing).

    Well-done; Beautiful and Functional

    I use my stainless steel Watch as an alarm clock and had previously situated it on a plush microfiber cloth. There were no 3rd party accessories like this that I have seen since May, 2015. If you are using the Milanese Loop band or similar, you should know that the watch can't lay flat to charge with this Magnetic Charging Dock. That being said, it holds the Watch perfectly for alarm clock mode, is beautiful to look at and is of quality. The only minus is the price; it's a bit expensive but, oh well, it is perfect.

    Apple Watch Dock Review

    First off, let me say that this dock is a MUST if you don't want your watch getting scratched when trying to charge it on a hard surface. For the first couple of weeks when charging without this, I had to put it on a blanket. Even after that though, I was skeptical about buying this stand, because it was ridiculously expensive. Anyways, after I bought it, I was absolutely delighted. The material used feels really nice, it looks beautiful on my dresser, and the weight inside it means it won't slide unless I pick it up. Quality was much better than any 3rd party stand, which is exactly what I needed. Now, there were a couple of problems with this dock.

    1. If you have a case, make sure it's a thin one (otherwise nightstand mode won't work/it won't charge)

    2. Overpriced. It's nice and all, but 80 bucks seriously? I bet it didn't cost more than 15 to make.

    3. It didn't come with a USB adapter. The long cord is awesome, but I had to plug the USB into my old iHome, which really defeats the purpose of nightstand mode.

    Overall though, it was worth it. A great buy, especially compared to the other cheap ones out there.

    No Complaits

    Another very well designed apple product. The people that give this 1 star because Apple chose not to charge us more and include the $19 AC adapter should find a better thing to complain about. If they did include one, people would complain that they don't need an extra AC adapter, which you don't. So, thank you Apple for making another great product and knowing when to include parts like an extra AC adapter and when not to. This is a beautiful, well made charger which will charge your watch and protect it at the same time.

    No USB Outlet Adapter....really?

    I just received my dock today, extremely disappointed no USB outlet adapter comes with it; required to spend an additional $19 for the wall/outlet adapter or forced to connect directly to a USB port.

    Nice stand but expensive.

    The stand is nice. But it should include a wall plug for the price. I guess they expect you to use the one that came with the watch.

    Won't charge overnight

    I love the look and the idea of this charger stand. I've been extremely disappointed with how long it takes to charge. I put it on the stand at 30% and 6 hours later it's only at 64%. I've tried different adapters and different outlets with no improvement.

    Perfect Dock for Watch

    I was reluctant to purchase this dock because of the price, but I'm glad I did. It's very well made with elegant aesthetics and premium build. It comes with a long lightning cable in addition to the dock. The material will not scuff up the Watch, which can be a problem with 3rd party docks. It also has good weight to it, which keeps it stable. This is the perfect accessory if you charge your watch on a nightstand or desk. I'm very impressed. You will be, too.

    Great charging dock.

    I was looking for a simple charging dock/cradle for days. I really wanted a dock that charged and enabled nightstand mode without scuffing/damaging my Apple Watch or table.

    This seemed to fit the bill, but I was a bit turned off by the price. Got it anyways, and am overwhelming satisfied with the purchase. I like that the actual charger allows the watch to either lay flat or up in night stand mode. It looks and feels more substantial in person and the soft-like bottom of the dock ensures that the watch will not get scuffed. If you can get over the price, you'll be pleased with this dock.

    Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock

    Just received this for Christmas. Very sleek and well designed for portability when traveling. I like that the center disk, which is the charging elements retracts both ways upright and or flat. Well made!!

    This is the one to get

    Got this as a gift, and I have to say that it's exactly what I expected (this is a good thing). Great quality, it looks great, and it's perfect for the nightstand that I'm sure most Watch owners charge there's on. Not very pricey considering it comes with a lightning cable, will work with future Watch generations, and of course it's the quality we all know and expect from Apple.
