    Just curious what do you guys think is the best one. I've been looking around but I want firsthand info from possible charging dock owners out here. Right now I charge my Watch by just putting it inside the included watch case and slightly covering it just so there's protection while it's charging.

    I've seen alot of charging docks out there but most of them wouldn't ship out until summer/fall this year.

    There's a few threads in the sub-forum for accessories relating to the docks that may interest you. :) http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=173

    The one I buy. For you the best one is the one you buy. Like cars, everybody thinks the one they own is the best, or they wouldn't have bought it.

    I bought the Spigen stand. It is inexpensive, looks good, and functions exactly as you would want a stand to. The inductive disc can be pushed slightly into the stand so that the case of the watch rests on the rubberised part of the stand, which holds the watch in position (rather than allowing it to rotate on the disc). Unless you want specific features not provided by it the Spigen is an excellent choice.

    ^ Agreed.

    The Spigen stand is inexpensive, looks great, and totally gets the job done. I'm super happy with mine and glad I didn't spend a penny more.

    I love the look of this, but are you not concerned about obsolesce given the price?

    Well, at about $150, it is steep, but I'll probably keep my next iPhone for 2 or 3 years - and I think that'll be the 6S.

    Hopefully they don't change the connector with the 7 - but thinking that far ahead is crazy. I don't always have the latest model phone, and I know other people who still have the old 30-pin connector (have a few chargers here at work). So if/when I get a phone thats incompatible, I think I'll be able to sell this stand, and that'll be 3-5 years from now anyways.

    Bought a Spigen, and it's nice for the price, but fell in love with the Mophie stand. Thing is ****ing gorgeous!!! Looks great on my night stand and the leather accents help keep the band protected (I have a link band).

    I really like how Mophie put a back portion behind the charging disc. That is outstanding and I don't know why others haven't. They did it exactly like I was planning on doing for one I was going to build.

    ----------

    That being said, I bought the Twelve South Watch stand to match my Twelve South HiRise deluxe phone dock and am quite please with it.

    The Spigen really is the best value. If you don't mind the lack of cord management, it's the clear winner.

    If you're like me and that would bug you, the Twelve South or the Nomad seem like the best bets.
