Your Apple Watch tells you to stand up periodically to maintain your health. It’s a small feature, but it’s actually one of the Apple Watch’s killer apps.

iPad mini Charge Case and Stand by iPort
Category: iPad stands
Works With: iPad mini
Price: $99.95

The iPort Charge Case tries to make this dream come true, but it doesn’t quite hit the mark.
