Look and Feel

Compact, slender, elegant. These could be a few words to describe this charging dock. A beautiful finish is evident throughout, and with Apple’s certificate and the fact that they actually sell it in their shops and website only tells you their confidence in it.

One of the more interesting thing about Apple iPhone docks is that almost everyone selling you one will tell you how heavy they are. They do so as a boast, and people with lightning connectors will understand. The extra weight helps you plug your phone in and importantly pull it out, without it getting overly attached. This dock is no different, and shows that off well.

The same goes for the watch. You can easily slide it on or off, and the included magnetic bits mean that it perfectly aligns on every single time, making the charging pads do their job most efficiently.

At the back is a little adjusting dial, which can be used to push the lightning connector up and down, which means you don’t have to worry which iPhone you have, or what case it lives in. Once again, great attention to detail, and thinking about it from a user’s perspective.

Usability and Ease of Use

There isn’t much I can fault with this, and while it is elegant and beautiful, it is also as simple as it gets to use. Just plug it in, and either plug your phone in, slide the watch on the watch stand, or do both, and just watch it work.

As a certain Meerkat would say, ‘Simples’.
