Apple is always releasing accessories for its devices, too, to make sure that it will enhance the experience of its users. The famous company has now released an accessory for the Apple Watch.
So, the Apple Watch charging dock is finally here. The new device is currently available for sale on Apple's official website.
The release was made by the popular company just a day after some photos of the new device leaked online. The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is available in sale for $79. The new device will allow Apple Watch owners to charge their devices either flat or on their side and this will actually activate the nightstands mode.

The device is not very small, either. It actually features 3-inches in diameter, to be able to hold the watch comfortably while charging. Apple has decided to add a Lighting port for the power connection.
The fact that the device come with a Lightning port is not quite surprising. In fact, Apple seemed to be quite willing to use Lighting ports into its new devices. The famous company did so for its new keyboard, mouse and trackpad, which all come with lightning port and a lightning cable.
Furthermore, Apple's interest in this is also proven through the fact that the company's new Apple TV remote also features a lightening port to recharge the battery.
When it comes to Apple Watch dock's lighting cable, www.Maddapple.com reports that users should know that it actually features 2 meters, so they should not worry about its usability. The device is made out of plastic, but it looks and feels like a qualitative charging doc, too, so in terms of looks and design it is a good choice.
However, the new Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock does not come with a USD power adapter and it does not bring new features to the Apple Watch. This means that it simply is an accessory which can definitely make charging easier and which will make the device look better when it is functioning as an alarm clock.
Of course, the Apple dock is not the only device of this kind that can be found on the market. In fact, other third party watch stands have been available in sale for months. Some of them, even come with more features or are made by better and more qualitative materials than the Apple Watch. Some devices can be found at much more affordable prices than what Apple is offering.
However, in terms of looks, the Apple Watch dock is without a doubt standing out. However, if it will convince many customers to make the decision to buy or not is something that is yet to be determined.
