    Will the Apple watch switch to landscape orientation when charging?

    Just to make it slightly easier to read when it's laying on its side charging. I thought it was a neat feature the Moto 360 has

    Does the Apple charger hold it upright?

    The edition comes with a stand but the others just come with the charging cable and power adapter so unless you buy a watch stand\docking station i would have thought it would just be a case of resting it on the surface where you are charging it in whatever position you put it which for most will be on its side.

    There is also the fact that you will need to raise the watch to light the screen up anyway so is a landscape mode required? Even if you press one of the buttons to light it up you are probably going to pick it up to do so.

    It's even better than Moto360. You won't use it while charging so you have no worry about orientation. Save you time that way.

    ? Unless the watch can levitate, how can it be upright without a stand/dock

    Doesn't tapping the screen once turn it on too? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjiZv0WBR0o&t=18) Say you're laying in bed with your watch on your nightstand: you can reach out, tap the screen to activate it, and look at the time without picking the watch up or depressing any of the buttons. Being in landscape orientation doesn't make that much of a difference, but I was just curious
