Another popular company has just announced a beautiful accessory for the upcoming Apple Watch.
Twelve South’s new HiRise is designed to both charge and protect the watch.
Available in either silver or black, the stand works in conjunction with the watch’s charging cable. Simply insert the cable’s magnetic disc into the cutout on the HiRise. The cable can easily be removed when needed.
Along with being able to charge your watch with the band opened or closed, the stable metal base allows users to quickly and easily interact with the watch. A leather-covered landing pad on the back of the dock will help protect the band itself.
The HiRise for Apple Watch will retail for $49.99 and be available in May. You can find out more about the stand on Twelve South’s site now.
I’ve been a big fan of Twelve South’s products, including the similarly designed HiRise for the iPhone and iPad mini I reviewed back in 2013. The new Apple Watch stand looks to be yet another winner from the company.
