Typically, Apple devices seem to be a model 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. Satechi proved this by launching a dock to charge a useful gadget. The solution seems so simple and natural that the product will undoubtedly be in demand. What is his secret?

Satechi magnetic docking station for Apple Watch received an aluminum case and is made in the corporate style of “gray space”.
The model is much more compact than the original Apple solution. And through the use of a USB-C port, the gadget can be connected directly even to a MacBook, iMac or iPad Pro. The watch will be held on site using a magnet.
It is worth noting that the original Apple charger uses an older (and therefore less relevant) USB-A standard or requires an external power supply. Satechi has passed the MFi certification, which guarantees the quality of its work with Apple devices.
The site received compact dimensions – 4 by 5 centimeters, the thickness is only 1 centimeter. Such a dock weighs only 120 grams. You can put it in your pocket, as it’s almost the size of a matchbox. The advantage of the device is the ability to work without an additional cable, which Apple’s original charger cannot boast of. No power outlet is required either – a tablet or computer may well be the power source. Do not be afraid of the discharge of its own battery – when you charge the watch 100% from a 12.9-inch iPad, the tablet’s battery capacity decreases by only 6%.
The docking station connects directly to the USB-C port of a computer or tablet. On the left side there is an LED indicator.
Even when using the iPad Pro in combination with the Smart Keyboard, the accessory can be on the side and hold the watch on itself due to the magnet. Such a design will be quite functional.
It is possible to connect the dock to any charger or power source with a USB-C port due to the removable flexible extension cable Satechi USB-C Mini Extension For Apple Watch (sold separately).
In combination with a third-party charger, the panel fully charges the Apple Watch in about 90 minutes.
Satechi USB-C Dock is compatible with all Apple Watch models.
