ElevationLab early this morning revealed a new product aimed at charging and securely fastening the Apple Watch, called the "NightStand." Aimed at securing the Watch with a strong base, NightStand isn't only one of the more reasonably priced Apple Watch stands to come along, but has the unique functionality of being able to mount vertically onto surfaces as well.

Similar to ElevationDock, the company's popular iPhone charging base, the NightStand for Apple Watch aims "to make charging un-annoying and effortless." Thanks to what the company calls the "NanoPad", the dock holds strong to any smooth surface it is placed on, which ElevationLab assures will provide customers with a quicker, one-handed charging experience.

NightStand makes daily charging a breeze. Just set your watch on, from out of the corner of your eye, no careful alignment required. Locks to your bedside table so you never have to hunt for the cord. Undocking is one-handed. Solid, soft, seamless construction. Low-profile, minimal design.

NightStand is molded in solid, medical-grade silicone with a gorgeous matte finish. Its softness protects from scratching (like traditional padded watch stands and winders do), it naturally kills germs, has a pleasant amount of flex, and comes in beautiful colors.

One of NightStand's most interesting features is its ability to be mounted vertically, thanks to an included "ultra-strong, optional to use, custom 3M adhesive back." ElevationLab promises it's as easy to place on a wall with a smooth surface as it is on a horizontal area, assuring a painless removal process as well that may require the adhesive to be slightly heated with a hair dryer in extreme cases.

The NightStand is available in three colors - Bright Red, Matte Black, and Cerulean Blue - and can be pre-ordered from ElevationLab's official website right now for $29. The docks, unfortunately, won't ship for over a month, with an estimated May 29 date currently sitting as the ballpark dispatch date for pre-orders made soon.

Fair warning: ElevationLab is notorious for being horribly behind schedule and refusing to communicate delays in a timely fashion. Look at their last two Kickstarter campaigns – months behind schedule and complete radio silence from the company itself.

Hi All -

I wanted to pop on here to introduce myself and address this. I am a new partner at Elevation Lab. I won't make any excuses for past mistakes and poor communication. I will say that we have learned some valuable lessons over the past 12 months and are striving to become a better company across the board.

Just know that we read these comments and take it to heart that the community has a powerful voice and we better not screw it up again. We want to be around for years to come.

Sincerely

Tom Floyd

thanks for the warning. i will not be "pre-ordering" this. ever since Coin started using pre-orders synonymously with "backers" I'm done pre-ordering anything that isn't from a reputable company.

If I order it today, I will get it before the watch arrives that I ordered on the 10th. Oh the irony! And the madness :mad:

Come on Apple, fix the hot mess. Hire Forstall back so you can blame him and fire him again.

But get me my watch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
