Apple Discontinues Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock

Following its "Far out" event yesterday, Apple has discontinued the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock.

The dock, which retailed for $79, included a circular base and allowed Apple Watch users to charge their Apple Watch in either a flat position or on its side to be used as an alarm clock. The dock was launched following the release of the first Apple Watch in 2015. For customers looking for a similar experience, Apple offers the MagSafe Duo Charger, which can charge both an Apple Watch and an iPhone with ‌MagSafe‌ at the same time.

That’s a shame. Have one at my bedside and it’s my favorite charger.

Wow, this is an essential part of the whole Apple Watch experience for us. I am surprised to see it discontinued.

Could argue that this charger should be included with each watch purchase.
I always liked the look of these, but could never really justify the price.

I’m guessing it just didn’t sell. It’s a lot for most people when cheaper charge stands exist.
