    This looks very interesting. May be worth it for long trips or if you know you won't be able to charge your watch for a while or it's going to use extra power. Certainly not an everyday solution though.

    I love the look of that. The orange is hot. I don't quite understand it though and how it works. They are not really giving any details besides a link to order

    Great idea. I wonder if it will heat up at all and be noticeable when wearing

    Have any of these case makers confirmed that the watch can even work if it's not making skin contact along the base?

    How does the band's power get into the watch battery?

    If wireless it would be somewhat inefficient.

    The watch can only be charged wirelessly...

    I understand that. So the band is charging the watch wirelessly? That would be great but no efficient. Wireless charging is inefficient but I guess the band would extend the watch's day.

    I hope the watch battery is not going to be a huge issue but you know for some it will be!

    I don't like this particular product but I am looking forward to seeing what companies will be coming up with in the way of iWatch accessories. I am really hoping for a waterproof case for the iWatch.
