If you’re a proud Apple Watch owner, you’ve probably watched in horror more than once when you knocked your device right off its flat magnetic perch — or, perhaps even worse, woke up to find it was never properly placed and didn’t charge overnight. It’s hard enough remembering to charge it every single night, since it only has an 18-hour battery life, but you also need to ensure it’s actually secured to its magnetic circle.

Here’s your fix: The Apple Watch Charging Cable & Stand, which comes in a wide array of aesthetically pleasing colors. The design also shows off your watch display, and makes sure you’re actually connected to a charge the whole night.

In other words, it makes your life easier.

Hands-on with the TimePorter Travel Case for Apple Watch [Unboxing]

Traveling with Apple Watch is a fairly simple affair: strap on your watch and go. Traveling with all the extra accessories, however, is a serious pain in the butt.

There’s that 6-foot charging cable, for one, which always manages to get tangled up in my bag. Add extra Apple Watch bands and a wall plug, and you’ve got some serious carry, and we haven’t even mentioned dealing with the watch when you aren’t wearing it.

Twelve South has an answer to this conundrum, and it’s called TimePorter. And, Cult of Mac’s Nadine Kahney unboxes this great little case before our very eyes.

Your Apple Watch deserves a Proper charger [Review]

Sadly, most Apple Watch charging stands look like utter crap. For a device beloved by Apple fans — some of the most design-savvy people on the planet — the Apple Watch accessories selection seems strangely miserable.

Some Apple Watch chargers look like old-school joysticks. Others look like Amish craftwork or the kind of 1980s rack you might see in a department store, loaded with ugly shirts nobody wants.
