Compatible with all Apple Watch series, from Ultra down through the smaller sizes, the W9 stand is available now in the Cult of Mac Store.

Elago’s W9 Stand for Apple Watch Ultra and all other series transforms your wearable into a retro computer while it charges. After you follow the simple installation process for the charging puck, place your watch on the charger to power it up.

The stand is made of silicone material that feels great to the touch and will last a long time. Elago used silicone to ensure the product would be safe to use around everyone, including adults, children and pets.
