    They make good quality products but $50 is pretty steep for just a slab of aluminum

    I don't disagree....it is a little more than I'd prefer to pay. Spigen's stand is made of aluminum as well, but I'm betting the quality difference will be a lot. Will it be enough to justify over double the price.....not sure?

    I'm torn between this and Spigen. The pros about the 12south are cable management and matching color rubber on the stab. Other than that, I'd rather get 2 Spigen and pocket the extra $10.

    So you have this product, or have had a chance to evaluate it, and have concluded that it's only a piece of aluminum. No comments regarding how it's made, it's build quality, etc? How does it compare to others? Your only comment is it's a piece of aluminum, just like any other piece of aluminum?

    It's a secret, but I'll tell you that not all aluminum is equal. Keep that to yourself. Don't spread it around.

    I have a spigen. It's OK and it's quality is appropriate for it's price. I just ordered the HiRise and expect it to be of much higher quality. The spigen is fine for most, and of course you, but others like higher quality products and are willing to pay for it.

    I have a couple of HiRise's for my iPhones and they are fantastic quality. TwelveSouth makes really high quality items.

    I absolutely agree. The prices are high but so is the quality. I ordered a black HiRise watch stand to go with my iPhone stand. And it'll be here long before the Spigen I also ordered arrives.

    Wow, that looks like a great stand! It looks like it was precision engineered.

    Yes sir. You got me good. Thanks for helping me. Have a nice day.

    ----------

    Agreed. I suspect it will be worth the price.

    I'll probably just give my Spigen to user Aluminum213.

    For $50, you'd think it would also provide a stand for the iPhone, too, but I guess they want to sell a separate HiRise for the iPhone for $35.

    For $60, just $10 more, you can preorder the FÜZ Dock that can also charge and stand the iPhone with your WATCH, and for $30 more, you can preorder the one that can charge two iOS devices plus your WATCH.

    Big fan (and owner of Fuz's DuoDock). However this design for the watch is just horrible. The watch is hidden in the back charging row and is very close to a metal piece from the back of the front charger which can scratch the watch if you're not careful. Overall, a poor design.

    I must say that the HiRise looks great . I have it for my iPhone and just love it . But the Spigen I ordered just arrived and is terrific..and much cheaper . No regrets :)

    I purchased the Hi-Rise as soon as I got the email so hope it gets dispatched soon. Will go nicely with my Hi-Rise for iPhone.

    I agree with a lot of the comments on this thread that yes the price is a bit steep. I think quality will be noticeable with this particular stand. They do make exquisite stands of other devices and I believe this one will be no different.

    I think for many, you've already forked out $300+ on the watch and are reluctant to want a stand which most likely is only going to be used when you are sleeping so for a lot of people the $49.99 price tag isn't justified.

    So overall I think this is a nice stand, price is high but there's that old saying. You get what you pay for!

    I ordered the combo HiRise for Apple Watch and the HiRise Deluxe for iPhone from TwelveSouth Direct and got $10 off the bill.

    If you buy both together and add PERFECTPAIR in coupon section of checkout you get $10 off.

    Ordered really early this morning. It now says "Shipping Now" on my order. No tracking number yet, but it looks like they use FedEx Ground Home Delivery

    Can you check shipping info on their site? Can't seem to find it.

    I created an account first which let me se the information that it has shipped.

    According to Twelve South, Tracking numbers are emailed to everybody in the evening on the day they are shipped.

    So if you ordered, even if you didn't create an account, you should receive an email hopefully tonight with your tracking number.
