    I like this. Make it white plastic the same grade as Apple iPhone dock then I'm in.

    My only thought about this, would be, in practical terms it really wants to either have a large lump of metal in the base, or be attached to something.

    At the moment, it's top heavy in use, and will just slide around / easy tip over as you are placing the watch onto it.

    Could be annoying unless you stuck it, for example, onto your desk.

    I like this one also. However I would love to see an adjustable angle so it could be used as a bedside alarm clock.

    Ome thing is for sure we will see 'tons' of accessories by launch day.

    Good observation. Yes, the base should weight a little more than the top + the watch. But hanging it feels more natural than sticking something to the back, or lay the watch flat like some charging design.
    Whoever thought of this is genius. :p Why couldn't Apple think of this?

    Exciting time for potential buyers. :p

    I'm waiting for someone to make the obvious :)

    A little bulky, unless you can re-engineer the charging disc, but still Do-Able if you wanted to.

    Have a band on your wrist, that held the charging disk like a watch, then wear the watch over the top of that. Like a double decker.

    Then you can charge your watch at the same time as wearing it.

    Albeit more bulky, but perhaps better than no watch.

    You could have a battery pack in your pocket the watch gets charge from, so in theory you could do this on the move when you are away from power.

    A silly idea perhaps, but it would work, and seems someone may make such a device for those on the move for long periods of time :)

    The only issue i can see there is that the magnetic charger covers the sensors on the watch so if you wore one like that the sensors couldnt be in contact with your skin so aside from the fact that the health stuff wouldnt be monitored it would probably stop Apple Pay from working as well.

    From the post i replied to the poster was saying about using a mobile charger in the wearers pocket to charge whilst on the move so the sensors being blocked would be an issue.

    I like this too, but would like to see the changing stand provided with the edition watch first.

    Interesting that Apple has chosen to keep that secret. Well a few people have seen it but no ones been able to photograph it.

    There's also a charging stand for :apple:Watch? :eek: I think the accessory business will explode once the watch is out.

    I would say if we need a device like this, Apple has dropped the ball on acceptable battery life.

    I don't remember seeing the other end of the magnetic charger, but I'm guessing it will be USB like iPhones are? A night stand, while not necessary would be nice, and then the supplied charger would probably be connected to your computer for topping it off on days of very heavy use. If that's not enough to adequately power it, they've failed.

    The charging stand doesn't come with the :apple:watch, a leather charging box comes with the edition models. If Apple doesn't sell these separately, expect third party vendors to copy it, changing it slightly enough to avoid patent infringement.

    Something a little simpler would be great.

    Not sure I want to shell out the money for a gold one and get a box for it - but something will be required no doubt.

    I think that is strange too. I tried searching for a pic a while back and was surprised I couldn't find anything. You think Apple would want to get people excited about the high end watch.

    Could be Apple wants to show this when it announces the price of the Edition. It will help to justify to tech heads (watch & fashion heads expect/understand) the price. A super nice leather covered case that will be a high end design and finely crafted product on it's own.

    True and if the watch does end up costing $4,000, I think they'll need to make that justification.

    This is by far the best looking accessory so far. I really love how minimal it is.
