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.
Resting on four small legs made out of the same premium silicone as the rest of the body, the company promises that the Bozon will protect the Apple Watch from spills and being knocked over while sitting on the dock. 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
