CES 2016: Actionproof Announces 'Bozon' Rubberized Apple Watch Dock

by

Today at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, accessory manufacturer Actionproof announced the "Bozon" Apple Watch charging dock. The $39.99 cradle provides a secure resting place for the Apple Watch, with a premium silicone finish that continues Actionproof's tradition of highly protective third-party Apple accessories.

"Actionproof is excited to continue expanding its product line and offer its customers additional, high-end protection and accessories for their Apple products," said Ivo Guiliani, co-founder of Actionproof. "We're confident the Bozon has solved the many issues of the other Apple Watch charging docks currently on the market."

The Bozon charging dock, launching today on the company's website, can charge the Apple Watch both horizontally and vertically and functions with any of Apple's official open- and closed-loop bands. Actionproof does provide one caveat, however, in that the Link Bracelet is not recommended for use on the Bozon due to the stainless steel band's extra weight.

Similar to Griffin's line of Apple-related charging accessories, the Bozon also gives users an opportunity for hidden cable management in its circular body. The new product lets users shorten or lengthen the Apple Watch's 2 meter charging cable to suit their own cord management needs. So if the dock sits close to a charging outlet, users can wind up the cord into the accessory for a more organized, clean look on a bedside table or desk.

Like most docking systems, it'll also let users fully interact with their watchOS notifications and apps even as it gets charged on the Bozon.

Those interested can order Actionproof's Bozon charging dock beginning today through the company's official website, with orders getting fulfilled through Amazon. The Bozon is Actionproof's featured product during CES this year, but the company also plans to provide some spotlight on its existing Apple accessories at the show, like The Bumper for the Apple Watch and SP-06 iPhone case line.

Very cute. Seems like a perfect gift for my wife. Except it needs to be in better colors. AND it needs to be cheaper - $40 for a silicone seems too high.

It looks like it could double as one of those novelty massaging tools.

$40 for a piece of molded silicone that isn't even a sex toy?
