Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock: Unboxing & Review

by birtanpublished on January 23, 2021

What's going on guys Mike here the Detroit Borg with a quick look at a new Apple accessory so this is the Apple watch magnetic charging dock now this retails for $79 and works with all Apple watches from the Apple watch sport to the stainless steel Apple watch and the Apple watch Edition and works with all sizes so basically it's a weighted doc that's padded for protection and the charging dock itself can articulate so you can prop up the Apple watch for night stand mode and you have this nice base which is padded which provides protection for your Apple watch so you don't scratch it that's especially

Important with the stainless steel Apple watch and the Apple watch edition so cracking into the box first thing we have front and center is the charging dock itself there is a piece of plastic covering the magnetic charging surface along with the chrome finish along the back so once we peel this off we're ready to go but we're going to set that aside to take a look at some of the other accessories so of course we do get a lightning cable this is an extra-long 2-liter lightning cable which is really nice to have it's actually similar in length to the charging dock that comes

Included with your Apple watch and of course we get some paperwork at the bottom we have a QuickStart guide that explains the basic uses and we have some regulatory and warranty information below that so taking a close look at the design it's unlike any other Apple watch dock you've probably seen from third parties so it's kind of this compact disc shape it basically feels like a solid piece of weighted metal wrapped in this sort of soft textured material the material itself is actually very consistent with other Apple accessories it feels like the same silicone material

That's on the silicone cases for the iPhones the iPads the Smart Cover is an S or a thing and along the bottom we have this microfiber material again very similar to the microfiber lining of iPhone and iPad cases along the side the two materials are pinched together in this nice seam and of course toward the side we'll find a lightning connector for connecting the lightning cable to charge your watch now the Lightning connector here actually has a chrome ring around it that's actually consistent with the chromed metal that's also at the center of the

Dock so a very nice design here we have this chrome hinge which allows you to articulate the charging dock so this also has a nice amount of resistance so it feels nice and smooth so again it feels like a high-quality well engineered design even though it's a simple accessory now the charging dock puck is actually somewhat similar to the one that comes with the stainless steel Apple watch but we have a chromed polished finish versus the brush on the charging dock with the Apple watch now a wall adapter is not included with the charging dock but of course one

Came with your Apple watch so you could use that instead or you can connect it to a USB port on your Mac as I do here now we can use the dock in two ways so we can lay the watch flat across the magnetic charging surface it automatically connects to it and charges your watch so it's very simple now of course this will not work with all bands so if you have a looped band like a Milanese loop you can't lay it flat what you'll have to do is raise it vertically this allows you to lay the watch sideways which then allows it to work with nightstand mode so this basically

Means you have a night clock that allows you to quickly check the time or set an alarm if you want to quickly check the time I have to do is tap the watch to wake it up and it goes back to sleep automatically now the great thing about this design is that everything is lifted off a table and protected from scratches this is especially important with the stainless steel Apple watch and its stainless steel bands and since the dock is weighted when you pick up your Apple watch the dock doesn't follow it although if you're slower about it you can pick it up as well now in the end I

Actually really like this accessory I think it's a nice way of charging and docking your Apple watch without this sort of sliding across your table we're having a search for the puck that probably fell behind your desk or behind your nightstand so this keeps it in one spot and I actually think $79 is a fair price for a well-made accessory that's designed to protect your 700 to $800 or $1000 Apple watch alright guys so that's going to do for me in this video what do you think of this accessory let me know in the comment section below I hope you guys enjoyed this video thanks for
