If you’ve personalised your Apple Watch with a nice strap, why not go the whole hog and choose a charging stand that fits your style too?

Here are some of the best third-party docks, ranging from handcrafted wooden designs to docks machined from aircraft-grade aluminium:
Griffin WatchStand

Griffin WatchStand
Colours: Black, white

Your Apple Watch is a gorgeous thing to behold, so it’s no surprise Griffin has designed this totemic stand to help you show it off when it’s not on your wrist.

The Watch sits securely on top with the band either buckled round the back or open and hanging down the front.

The weighted, non-slip base provides confident footing to the display. Yes, it takes care of your iPhone’s power needs too.
Pad & Quill Luxury Pocket Stand

Colours: American cherry, exotic sapele, American walnut

This all-natural hardwood stand has a signature handmade rustic feel that’s typical of most Pad & Quill products.

While an Apple Sport band might seem out of place on it, the sculpted look and smooth finish of the grain make a Hermès leather band look positively at home.

When the stand’s not in use, it folds away into a compact, lightweight wooden block.
Mophie Watch Dock

Colours: Metallic silver

This aluminium stand keeps things simple from the moment you open the box.

Its quick start guide explains how to place your Watch’s inductive charger into the circular cut-out and feed the cable down a rubber channel inside the vertical arm, through the base and out the back.
Proper WatchKeeper

Colours: Black, tan

Stand-based docks are great for showing off your luxurious timepiece, but if you’re after more discretion then check out this leather-lined protective steel case from Proper.

The charging disc lies in a cut-out in the tray, while the cable runs discreetly underneath and out of a side port for connecting to a power source.
Fuse Chicken Bobine Watch

Colours: Silver, white

The cable-like Bobine Watch from Fuse Chicken can be twisted into all manner of shapes, meaning you can get the perfect angle for your desk or bedside table every time.

Flexibility is key to its adaptability, but crucially the stand holds position on its own and doesn’t droop under the weight of even the heaviest metal wrist straps.
ThanoTech Diskus

ThanoTech Diskus
Colours: Silver, white

The ThanoTech Diskus is among the first Apple-approved wireless chargers around.

It’s powered by micro USB, so you may already have a few of those cables laying around.

It’s the perfect go-to charger for the Apple Watch because its included cable is nice and short.
Boostcase BLOC Wireless Dock

Boostcase BLOC Wireless Dock
Colours: Silver aluminium, space grey aluminium, bamboo wood

The BLOC is not only the most Apple-looking dock, it also offers wireless charging thanks to a 2000mAh battery inside.

It comes in six pieces: a piece of metal (or wood), a battery with micro-USB cable, two rubber inserts for two sizes of charging disc and a guitar-like pick.
Twelve South HiRise for Apple Watch

Colours: Black, white

Twelve South has taken the same brushed aluminium of its mainstay HiRise for iPhone device and machined it into a wide-base stand that gives good stability if you like to interact with your watch when it’s not on your wrist.

Silicone padding on the cut-outs protects from any mishaps when placing and removing your watch.
