    This was a Kickstarter project. I just got notification of shipment of mine, so I should have it in my hands within the next week.

    Hard to get excited about stand that doesn't support nightstand mode

    I've used nightstand mode and it really isn't very useful.

    But having the option to use it is still important

    And you actually can use it on the Premium One. That was in their first update after WatchOS 2 was announced.

    no you can't. all he did was show a picture of the watch being held horizontally on the dock. As soon as you try to snooze/turn off the alarm by pressing the side buttons on the watch, you will wake up and see a shattered apple watch.

    Maybe, but with your iPhone next to it, you could at least run some night clock on that while it's charging.

    Yes, you can, I am using it as well. Just tipping on it shows the time for a couple seconds. Our docks are keeping the watch in place when the alarm goes on -we got video on our Facebook page as well

    It's ok. I have a projection clock. I would have to put on my glasses and then look at the watch to tell the time, so it's not an issue for me. Probably quite a few others as well.

    would be cool if you can activate Siri somehow at night without moving the Watch, asking "Hey Siri, what time is it?" but haven't figured it out. Just tried again in NS mode - doesn't work

    You can do that with your iPhone or iPad as long as they're plugged in.
