Twelve South Announces HiRise Charging Stand for Apple Watch

Twelve South on Wednesday unveiled the HiRise for Apple Watch, a brushed metal stand designed to hold all three editions of the wrist-worn device. The stand showcases the entire Apple Watch, allowing you to interact with the screen while it is charging, and features a non-slip rubber base, silicone accents and leather landing pad to keep the smartwatch secure and protected.

HiRise for Apple Watch, similar to the iPhone version of the stand, is slightly angled so that you can easily interact with the Apple Watch from a bedside table or countertop. The watch band tucks away cleanly behind the stand's metal frame, with the silicone accents preventing any scratches or scuffs. A pop-out disk on the back of the stand keeps the Apple Watch's magnetic charging cable out of sight.

HiRise for Apple Watch will be released in May for $49.99 on Twelve South's website, available in silver and gray options. Those interested in the product can sign up to Twelve South's mailing list with their name, email address and country of residence to receive updates when the product becomes available.

Would love for a combo unit (iPhone & Apple Watch) for my nightstand. I have their iPhone stand on my desk at work and love it.

I really like the look of that. I have there iPhone stand and really like it. I think I will be adding this one to my night stand.

I would really like a combo stand that does both iPhone and Apple Watch so there isn't 2 separate stands on my nightstand.

NICE...little pricey but nice.


At least for the price its made out of nice materials and not just plastic like so many others will be.

When will we start seeing dome cases that go over your watch and wrist to protect your watch from damage. They'll need flip up lids for when you need to access it. Will we see people with bubble wrap padding their wrists to keep their watch from getting scratched. Will there be a Lifeproof Watchproof for taking it swimming. :D

The price is better than Apple Watch's.

Yes, could shave off some dollars, but I think it's okay and it'll probably be discounted somewhere much sooner than an Apple Watch (at least a new one from a retailer, not talking used and obsolete ;) )

Griffin watch stand is a large plastic phallus hanging out within awkward proximity to your pillow. Pass.

I like the look of the HiRise much more than the Griffin WatchStand (www.macrumors.com/2015/03/10/griffin-watchstand-apple-watch/), which seems needlessly tall.

I usually choose products by technical specs and price, not a first impression, but first impressions are worth something too.
