Apple devices are usually seen as examples of elegance and ergonomics. But there is no limit to perfection and there is always something to improve. For example, even a regular Apple Watch charger can become even more convenient and practical. This was proved by Satechi by releasing a docking station for charging a useful gadget. The solution seems so simple and natural that the product will undoubtedly be in demand. What is his secret?

The Satechi Magnetic Docking Station for Apple Watch has an aluminum case and is made in the corporate style “gray space”.
The model is much more compact than the original Apple solution. And by using the USB-C port, the gadget can be connected directly to even a MacBook, iMac or iPad Pro. The watch will be held in place by a magnet.
It is worth noting that the original Apple charger uses the older (and therefore less relevant) USB-A standard or requires an external power supply. Satechi is MFi certified to ensure it works well with Apple devices.
The site has received compact dimensions – 4 by 5 centimeters, while the thickness is only 1 centimeter. This docking station weighs only 120 grams. You can put it in your pocket, as it is almost the size of a matchbox. The advantage of the device is the ability to work without an additional cable, which the original charger from Apple cannot boast of. No power outlet is required either – a tablet or computer can be used as a power source. Don’t worry about draining its own battery – charging your watch 100% from a 12.9-inch iPad will only reduce the tablet’s battery capacity by 6%.
The docking station connects directly to the USB-C port of a computer or tablet. There is an LED indicator on the left end.
Even when using iPad Pro in combination with the Smart Keyboard, the accessory can be magnetically attached to the side and hold the watch. This design will be quite workable.
The docking station can be connected to any charger or power source with a USB-C port using the detachable Satechi USB-C Mini Extension For Apple Watch (sold separately).
Combined with a third-party charger, the pad fully charges your Apple Watch in approximately 90 minutes.
The Satechi USB-C Dock is compatible with all Apple Watch models.
