The Best Apple Watch Stands and Docks You Should Consider Buying

From snazzy bedside setups to durable gear for the office, we're going to take a look at the best Apple Watch stands on sale right now.

Ever since I got my first smartwatch, I finally understood all the buzz about Apple Watches. These watches aren't only useful due to the apps they have; they're as easy as possible to set up and make a serious fashion statement. 

The Apple Watch remains one of the best smartwatches to buy right now, and had I known I'd be hooked on wearing one, I'd have bought it instead of my Fitbit. 

However, charging them can be pesky. Using the dinky little charger Apple initially gives you can be annoying—not to mention somewhat of an eyesore. Third parties actually stepped up to the task of making great Apple Watch charging docks, though, and some of them are really swanky. 

If you're looking for one of the best Apple Watch stands for your favorite wearable tech, this list will help you find the perfect match. 

Apple Watch Stand by Baiver

Sometimes, the best Apple Watch stands and docks aren't just about the watch. Sometimes, it's about creating a hub where you can charge all your Apple products in a stylish, sleek, and pretty manner. 

This office-ready Apple Watch stand has room for your iPhone, iPad, and your favorite smartwatch, too. All you need to add are the charging cords for each one to start juicing up your gear. 

Apple Watch Stand by Mercase

People with a healthy disdain for clutter will find Mercase's Apple Watch stand to be a far better option. This petite, modern stand will let you charge both your iPhone and your smartwatch without too much extra bulk. 

What makes this tiny thing one of the best Apple Watch stands out there is the fact that it's built to last—and that it comes with built-in cable management. Ultra-lightweight as it is, it'll grip your gear well and keep everything in perfect order. 

Bobine Watch Stand by Fuse Chicken

Fuse Chicken? What a strange name! Odd as it may be, they definitely didn't chicken out when they decided to go for a more daring design for Apple Watch docking gear. 

The Bobine Watch stand is currently the most flexible minimalist Apple Watch stand in existence. All you need to do is plug in your cord and coil it around anything you want. Artists who love stark minimal style will love this one!

Griffin WatchStand Charging Dock by Griffin Technology

If you're looking for something that is effortless, then the best Apple Watch stands are going to be ones that ooze simplicity, just like the Griffin WatchStand and Charging Dock does. 

Epic cable management, plug-and-play charging, with a simplistic design that fits in any room makes this a perfect match for any type of lifestyle. Whether you're looking for a nightstand charger or an office charger, this universally slick design is an excellent choice. 

HiRise for Apple Watch by Twelve South

Not all Apple Watch owners want to have a simplistic design. Sometimes, you want to make a real statement with your watch and its charging dock. The HiRise watch stand is unmistakably elegant, and mimics the look of more upscale models that cost double or even triple its price. 

Brushed metal, a beautiful display, and a carefully crafted Apple Watch charging setup makes this one of the best Apple Watch stands for people who insist on class. 

Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock by Apple

Okay, let's be real—the charging cable that Apple offers smartwatch wearers might not be much to look at, but there's a reason why Apple is known for its excellent aesthetics. That's why it's kind of obvious that Apple would make the best Apple Watch stands on the market. 

The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock uses wireless technology to charge your smartwatch. The moment your Apple Watch is docked, it goes into Nightstand mode and doubles as an alarm clock. Elegance and versatility, thy name is Apple. 

The PowerHouse Charging Station by Belkin

Belkin is known for making some of the best iPhone accessories on the market, and now, they're making headway into making some of the best Apple Watch stands too. This tech-charging product maker is known for excellent quality and even better style. 

The PowerHouse Charging Station rapidly fires up your Apple Watch and iPhone at the same time. All the charging modules are already built-in, so you can keep your extra chargers in your bag. Neat!

Dock for Apple Watch by Native Union

Slightly vaporwave in its appearance and incredibly well-built, the Native Union Dock is one of the best Apple Watch stands on the market. This highly versatile watch stand not only charges your watch, but also displays it and adds an easy "slide on/off" touch to your charging experience. 

If you're looking for a very office-appropriate watch stand that would look just as nice in your living room, this is a great choice. Oh, and if you're wondering, the rotating arm works with all the best Apple Watch bands on the market. 

iRoll by ROMOSS

The ROMOSS iRoll is one of the quirkier Apple Watch docks we've seen, but that's exactly what makes it one of the best Apple Watch stands on Amazon. This simple design works with every Apple smartwatch ever made, keeps your watch steady, but also avoids scratching the watch's surface. 

Unlike others on this list, this stand is designed to be portable, and offers 3250mAh of power when fully charged. If you're looking for a portable power bank that can charge your Apple Watch on the go, this is it. 

S350 Apple Watch Stand by Spigen

Finally, if you're looking for the best Apple Watch stands that offer nightstand mode without costing a ton of money, you're going to love Spigen's S350 watch stand. This watch stand is crisp, clean, and charges your phone beautifully. 

The best part is that it also functions as an alarm clock and costs under $15.
