Prototype of Apple Watch watch dock to make CES appearance

Prototype of Apple Watch watch dock to make CES appearance
A company called Standzout is at CES showing off prototypes of its Apple Watch accessory. The Bandstand Apple Watch dock, which Standzout calls "The first great Apple Watch accessory," uses an induction charging plate to power up the device while holding the watch in place. A pair of USB ports allow you to use the dock to charge other devices like an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad.

Of course, the Apple Watch has yet to be released, although there is speculation that Apple is planning on a Valentine's Day launch of its wearable device. This is sure to be just one of a plethora of accessories that will be made available for Apple's eagerly awaited timepiece. With early guesstimates for first year sales ranging as high as 30 million units, there is bound to be some heavy demand for Apple Watch accessories.

Unlike the other smartphone manufacturers, Apple has made an effort to have its smartwatch considered a piece of fashion jewelry. Immediately after the unveiling of the timepiece in September, some Madison Avenue pundits said that the device was too masculine. Others said that they preferred Apple's design over smartwatches made by LG or Samsung.

I hear you Mxy, I can't wait to get mine, and the wife is on board too. I want the aluminum, with the white or blue band.

Apple should have included a stand like this one with there Apple watches. If Motorola can include a charging dock as well as a stainless steel moto 360 for $250, then Apple could have easily included a stand like this one as well for $350, and that is the Apple Watch Sport price that uses aluminum instead of steel.

To do so, one should open the comment section [Options] and set their preference to see the moderated comments. As you can see, we have moderated comments #5, 6, 7, which are not meeting the rules, as they are offensive. Unfortunately, when this happens, replies to the moderated comments are also hidden, as the comments display in a thread. PhoneArena mod team.
