In what may come as a surprise, Apple have announced their own charging dock for the Apple Watch, the Magnetic Charging Dock, making it available immediately from the Apple Online Store.

White, thin, circular and elegant in appearance, the dock allows you to place your Apple Watch in either a flat position or on its side, enabling the Apple Watch to go into the Nighstand mode, and turning your watch into an alarm clock. All Apple Watch models are compatible: Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and the Apple Watch Edition, in both 38mm and 42mm.

Charging is possible by using the magnetic charger which comes with your Apple Watch and connecting via a Lighting to USB Cable – Apple is including the Lightning cable with the purchase of the Dock.

The Magnetic Charging Dock for Apple Watch can be purchased from the Apple Online Store for A$129 with free delivery or Personal Pickup from Apple Retail Stores.
