The Charge Dock for Apple Watch and iPhone is the first product of its kind in the market, which provides a magnetic charging surface for the Apple Watch that positions the device at the perfect viewing angle. This single dock and single cable solution allows for a clean, clutter-free charging environment. It gives users easy, unobstructed access to the Apple Watch while it is being charged, allowing the option to continue use of the device, and unlocking opportunities for increased productivity and connectivity. The minimalist design of the dock allows it to blend seamlessly into the environment. The chrome stem 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 the Apple Watch is placed upon it for charging. The tilt angle for the docked device has been carefully scrutinized to optimize user experience. Whether the dock is placed on a bedside table or on a kitchen counter, the user can view and interact with the device without strain.
