Anyone get a dock yet?

#1
One of the things I think I want for my Apple Watch is a charging dock. I anticipate charging it intermittently during the day, but also at night. After looking at all the available solutions it seems that that a majority position the watch at a 45 degree angle facing upwards. While this may be convenient on a desktop or table, I suspect it wouldn't be very useful on a nightstand since it would be hard to read from a prone position in bed. I have looked extensively and only found two docks that allow adjustment of the angle of the watch while being charged, and unfortunately neither is actually ready for sale yet.

The one I think I like best is the Bandstand. A nice clean design plus it has hidden USB ports for also charging other devices.

The other is the Native Union Dock. It is a heavy unit that can be used laying flat with the watch on top with the display angled perfectly for viewing from bed, or with the watch on the side, at any angle.

So, anyone have a dock and what have you discovered after using it for a while?

This one is en route to me now. I wanted a stand for both the phone and watch. Hopefully it'll work out.

I haven't thought about a dock. Not sure if I'd want something that would go well with my watch or with my bedroom decor. It's more rustic, Pottery Barn wood look.

I was surprised at how many wood docks were available, I'm sure you could find something to go with that barn you sleep in.

Like this? Or is this one too rustic? They have all kinds.

I bought the Spigen and regretted it. I ordered the HiRise and I love it.

Hi Rick.

With the new update coming this fall . You can have the watch on its side to show the time and date.

I'd like to get one that charges both devices at the same time. The ones I've seen look ugly to me. The search continues.

This is what I have now. In the bottom there is 5 port usb hub that plug to the wall. Pick up both from Amazon two months ago . As you can see the watch hang there fine.
