Apple launches $79 ‘Magnetic Charging Dock’ for Apple Watch

Close on the online leak of the purported images of the Apple Watch charging dock on Tuesday, tech giant Apple made the official ‘Magnetic Charging Dock’ for Apple Watch available for purchase at some Apple stores on Wednesday.

The Magnetic Charging Dock for the Apple Watch smartwatch is also available at Apple’s online store in the US. The dock is priced at $79.

The official charging dock for the Apple Watch smartwatch is not merely a charger accessory like the third-party watch stands. The dock enables the Apple watch users to charge their smartwatch by placing it flat on top of it, or by raising the charging disc and wrapping the smartwatch around the dock to charge in Nightstand mode.

The official Magnetic Charging Dock for the Apple Watch smartwatch comes with the small, built-in inductive charging disc. The dock can be plugged into a wall charger with the help of the Lightning cable which comes with it.

The launch of the Magnetic Charging Dock comes almost seven months after the release of the Apple Watch smartwatch. In the absence of the official charging dock, a number of third-party options have been available till now. However, these third-party options have largely depended on threading the Apple Watch's bundled charging cable, and these options generally do not support Nightstand mode.
