So you’ve got an Apple watch and now it’s time to find a way to integrate it into your life. The best way to start is by checking out some great accessories. While the base model is good looking, it’s only one look. There are a lot of other styles to explore. Don’t get content with new bands either; there are many other accessories that can add extra function to your watch and even make charging it a little more convenient.
Your Apple watch is a great piece of technology, but its band might not always suit your style. Meridio has you covered. They offer a variety of bands in interesting and exotic materials, including suede, cavallino leather, ostrich, galuchat, and crocodile leather. You can even add your initials to the band to personalize it more. Almost everything is made in Italy — only the alligator material comes from the United States, so you know you’re getting the highest quality band possible.
Native Union Dock for Apple Watch: Marble Edition
If you’re looking to add a touch of class to your charging station, look no farther than this offering from Native Union. Black marble shot through with white veins or white marble with cream veins is the base of this elegant little charging stand. Since it includes a brushed metal arm that lets you rotate the watch, you can still use your Apple watch while you’re charging the battery too. The arm snaps into the marble with magnets. In a horizontal position, it goes into nightstand mode and it’s compatible with all watch straps.
Apple watches don’t include a camera, which means you miss out on being able to snap a quick photo from your wrist. CMRA takes care of that omission by adding not one — but two — cameras to your Apple watch. It has 8 GB of memory, noise reduction, image stabilization, and the battery lasts all day. Another benefit: it’s water resistant. So a little rainstorm isn’t going to ruin your cameras. Right now CMRA is closed to pre-orders, but it has a waiting list where you can sign up to be notified when they’re ready to take more.
Spigen Bamboo Charging Dock
If you dig a more natural aesthetic, this Spigen bamboo charging dock could be right up your alley. It’s made from 100 percent premium bamboo. The best part is that it’s a dual-charger. You can pop your watch onto the inductive charging arm and then slide your phone into the charging dock. It even has a non-slip silicone base layer so that the stand doesn’t slide off your nightstand when you’re reaching to stop your morning alarm.
Like most devices, the Apple watch will eventually run out of battery if you’re using it. When you’re on-the-go that can be a real inconvenience. The Nomad Pod helps you get a lot more life from your watch, which means you can take it camping or on trips without worrying about it draining. It’s made with an aircraft grade aluminum shell that holds an 1800 mAh battery. With it, you can recharge your Apple watch three times without needing to be tethered to a traditional outlet.
ArmorSuit Military Shield Screen Protector
It’s a fact of life that our devices get scratched up. This applies to Apple watches as much if not more than to phones and tablets. The ArmorSuit Military Shield Screen Protector can help keep your Apple watch from looking like it’s old before its time — and help protect against dings. ArmorSuit is made from a thin protective film with self-healing properties. Don’t try to apply it when you need your watch — it takes 24 hours to set after it’s applied. You can also remove it, wash it, and reapply it.
Pantheon Wireless Keychain Charger
Pantheon’s wireless keychain charger packs a lot of power into a little keychain. It comes in rose or gray and you can charge your watch two or three times with a single charge of the keychain. It has a 700 mAh lithium battery and charges your watch wirelessly. You’ll have to charge it with a micro USB when it’s not in use — but it’s a great backup to have at hand. Pantheon also kept it light; the keychain only weighs 51 grams.
Whatever your needs and style, there’s an Apple watch accessory that’s just perfect for you. You don’t have to stick with the pieces that come with the watch itself — instead, make your own style and your own way of using it. Great bands, stylish charging stations, and portable backups can all make your Apple watch more functional, portable, and personal.
