The GoPower Watch Stand has a compact, elegant design and is accented with aluminum. While many competing products require that you supply your own Apple Watch charging cable, the Kanex stand includes the hardware as well as a USB port that can charge any USB device with 2 Amps of power.

The stand looks great, but is only available in one color (matte black/space gray) and because of the orientation, it does not accommodate Nightstand Mode. 

Pros

  • Compact, elegant design w/ aluminum accents
  • 2 Amp charging via USB port
  • Integrated Apple Watch charging function

Cons

  • One color (matte black/space gray)
  • Does not accommodate Nightstand Mode

Final Verdict

If you have an iPhone and an Apple Watch you can charge both with the GoPower Watch Stand from Kanex.
