Your new Apple Watch deserves more than to be slapped on top of its included charging cable every night. Treat yours to an actual charging stand without breaking the bank and give it a better place to rest.
Here are seven stellar options for under $30.
Best Apple Watch charging stands under $30
Just Mobile HoverDock
The HoverDock is one of the prettiest Apple Watch charging stands money can buy. Made out of cool aluminum, it looks like it could cost a pretty penny, but you can order one today for under $20!
The HoverDock holds Apple Watch in Nightstand mode so you can see the time with a tap. Pull it apart and you’ll find space inside for your charging cable, so any excess isn’t left out to make a mess.
The stand has a soft-touch base that prevents it from sliding about on your nightstand. And it looks terrific no matter where you put it.

Elago 3-in-1 Charging Hub
If you also own a pair or AirPods, how about Elago’s excellent 3-in-1 charging hub? It tops-up iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods simultaneously — and looks good while it’s doing it.
The hub is made entirely out of silicone, so it’s virtually unbreakable. You don’t have to worry about it getting knocked over, and you can take it anywhere without fear of it getting crushed in your bag.

The HEDock is made entirely out of high-grade aluminum, and it costs just $15. It looks good no matter where you put it, and it’s crafted to securely hold onto your Watch without falling over.
Its compact, minimalist design means the HEDock will fit anywhere, whether you plan to stick it by your bed or on your desk. And its brushed finish complements other Apple products beautifully.

Wiplabs Wall Charging Stand
This unique wall charging stand is brilliant at keeping your Apple Watch out of the way while its charging. Simply plug it into the wall, place your Watch on top, and it’s good to go.
The stand encases your charging cable so you don’t have to worry about tripping over it, and it’s made from PVC with a rubberized finish that’s makes it nice and sturdy.

Elago Retro Stands
Elago’s spectacular Apple Watch charging stands are my favorite products on this list. And if you’re fan of anything Apple (or retro gaming), I know they’ll love them, too.
The stands come in a number of outstanding designs inspired by the original Macintosh, the iconic iMac G3, early iPods, and the very first Game Boy. And they come in a number of eye-catching colors.
They’re also surprisingly affordable, with prices starting at just $13. The only problem you’ll have is choosing between them because they’re all so wonderful.

If you’re on a really tight budget, you’ll want to check out the Spigen S350. It’s simple, does its job beautifully, and costs just $10.99.
The S350 holds your Apple Watch in Nightstand mode and is compatible with almost any band. It’s made out of silicone so it’s near-indestructible, and it comes in a number of color options.
It also has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon after an impressive 5,300 reviews.
