Does anyone have the Apple Watch dock?

Do you like it? Do you think it's any better or worse than the cheaper ones you get which integrate the watch charger with the stands?

Are you happy with your purchase or do you regret it?

Thanks in advance!

I love mine and have been using it since I got my watch back in Jan. It works perfectly for me, no issues. I did however just get the Nomad Apple watch and phone charger combo since it came back in stock. It just arrived today, has a 5 star rating but I haven't used it yet. The Apple dock works great though.

Thanks! I actually caved and got it too. I do love it, I think it’s great. Of course other stands are just as functional but you are paying for good design and not just functionality. This works well for me as I have white side tables and they’re minimalist too.

I got one for myself, and one for the wife. I like them a lot. I had a TwelveSouth stand and for some reason my S4 did not quite fit on it. That resulted in intermittent and/or incomplete charging, which was annoying.

The best feature of the Apple Watch dock IMHO is that you can swing the puck up from horizontal to vertical. This was important because I have several of the Sport Bands (two pieces that can charge flat) as well as a Steel Link and Sport Loops (one piece that cannot lie flat). With the Dock, it doesn't matter which band I have on the watch because I can put the puck in the correct orientation for each.
