SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Award-winning design studio Native Union unveils DOCK for the Apple Watch. With its sleek and minimal design, the charging dock glorifies the Apple Watch and offers maximum versatility when recharging your device.
The Native Union DOCK provides a secure base for your Apple Watch, whether buckled or unbuckled, holding the device securely in place. The weighted silicon structure of the charging dock makes it sturdy, whilst its rotating aluminum arm lets you smoothly and firmly control the angle of your watch for optimum viewing. DOCK can be used either vertically or horizontally, so is perfect for charging at your desk or on your bedstand, for a more natural way of viewing your watch whilst lying down. The design is reversible, allowing you to position the arm on whichever side is most convenient.
John Brunner, co-founder of Native Union comments, “The Apple Watch is designed to be charged at night and worn all day, so investing in a dock will be a priority for many users. Our charging dock creates a secure base for your smartwatch when it’s not on your wrist, not only showcasing the beauty of the device but also giving you a functional platform to navigate your device whilst charging, whether you are checking the time, emails or using apps.”
Sleek and with minimal components, the charger is precision engineered without screws, and assembled by simply slotting two components together. The Apple Watch’s magnetic charging cable is fed into the dock where it is locked in place, which eliminates the frustration of fumbling around on the floor for your charger at night or unsightly messy wires.
Fabien Nauroy, Head of Design at Native Union comments, “In keeping with all Native Union products, we have placed equal emphasis on the functional and aesthetic qualities of the charging dock. As well as being a versatile charger, it is also a stylish object for the home. The sophisticated combination of high quality materials, minimal form and considered details complement the watch and your interiors.”
The Native Union DOCK for Apple Watch will launch in graphite, with an expanded color range to follow. It is compatible with all three Apple Watch models - Watch, Watch SPORT, Watch EDITION - and all strap styles and sizes.
DOCK for Apple Watch is available to pre-order for $59.99/£49.99/€64.99 from Native Union from 10th April 2015, and ready to ship from August 2015.
Native Union’s charging dock for Apple Watch is part of a family of docks, including one for iPhone, coming soon from Native Union.
