Third-party accessory manufacturer Griffin today announced a new combination Apple Watch and iPhone charging stand called the "WatchStand Powered Charging Station." The dock takes the original design of the company's WatchStand dock and adds on a new section that acts as a landing pad to charge an iPhone or iPad next to the Apple Watch.

The new version of the WatchStand comes with a built-in power supply and two dedicated USB charging ports so the cable clutter is visually reduced trailing out from the back of the dock. The WatchStand's underside provides multiple cable management opportunities to ensure that the cords for the Apple Watch and iPhone don't become unruly when both are placed on the stand.

Just as with the original WatchStand, the new version supports all bands for the Apple Watch and can even adapt to horizontal and vertical positions, giving users the option to try out new WatchOS 2 features like Nightstand mode. The base of the WatchStand lets users place their iPhone either on the top of a flat, felt surface or angled against the piece that holds up the Apple Watch, to watch videos while the iPhone charges.

The WatchStand Powered Charging Station is available to purchase from Griffin's official website for $59.99 starting today.

Looks very compelling. And by compelling, I mean hideous.

Yikes. I don't know about everyone else, but if I want a dock for my phone, I don't want the cord sticking out like that. I thought the point of a dock was to easily place your phone on a sturdy charging port without fumbling for a cord?

Not digging that look at all, much less for 60 bucks.

Here is my honest warning to all those looking to purchase this. I have the older version of this stand, and the angle of the watch is too steep, and if you have the stainless steel model, a slight tap might make your watch fall down. Also, if you rest your iPhone the way shown in the picture without a case, a notification rattle will be amplified because the base is metal. Overall, this product is very poorly designed and I don't recommend it, nor do I have a recommendation right now because there isn't that many great alternatives.
