The Charge Dock for Apple Watch and iPhone is the only product on the market with an integrated Apple Watch charger, which provides a convenient, simultaneous charging solution for both iOS devices. The dock combines an integrated Lightening connector for iPhone and a magnetic charging surface for the Apple Watch. The adjustable iPhone connector accommodates for most phone cases, while the stem positions both devices at the perfect viewing angle. The minimalist design and one cord one dock solution, allows this accessory to blend seamlessly into the environment and and keep it clutter-free. The chrome stem, which serves as a backrest for the iPhone and a platform for the watch, was intentionally built as a minimal element. It is an interesting, sculptural element that stands out when the dock is not in use, and disappears almost entirely when devices are placed upon it for charging. The tilt angle for both devices has also been carefully scrutinized to optimize user experience. Whether the dock is placed on a bedside table or on a kitchen counter, the user will be able to interact with both devices without strain.
