So Im supposed to buy a clock radio to charge my watch, which has a night stand mode with alarm to replace my clock, and my phone, which has Spotify and Apple Music to replace my radio. Got it.

You're not supposed to do anything. But if you want to have a clock radio in your bedroom that shows the time to anyone, anytime, whether or not they are wearing a watch or carrying a phone, this is one option that also doubles as an iPhone and Apple Watch charger.

The only people in my bedroom have iPhones and Apple Watches. Anybody else is chained to a water pipe in the basement. :-p
