As you are probably aware, Apple hasn’t yet released a charging dock for the Apple Watch, but it seems that might be changing – according to some recently started rumors.
A set of pictures has leaked today, showing Apple-branded, round charging station for the company’s smartwatch. The box, pictured below, makes it seem like you’re buying a CD rather than a dock or stand, but this certainly seems like something that would come from Apple.
The white pad allows the Apple Watch to charged lying flat, as well as in a horizontal orientation – making it possible to use the nightstand mode, added in WatchOS 2. There is also a port for the Lightning cable, where the rest of the device is very simplistic and without any visual distractions.
Several websites are speculating that this dock could be priced around $100, which seems to be on the expensive side compared to similar products. You can certainly find amazingly designed Apple Watch docks, that are also very functional, for around $30-50 at Amazon, or in Apple’s own retail stores. However, this price wouldn’t be as surprising considering that Apple is currently selling the $169 iPad Pro Smart Keyboard, which is also on the expensive side.
