I found the Spigen Apple Watch Charging Stand while I was digging around on Amazon for Apple Watch accessories.  Before I found this charging stand, my Watch had just been laying on my nightstand to charge at night, and I had accidentally knocked it off a couple of times because I wasn't used to the [...]

In watchOS 2, Apple says your Watch will function as your alarm clock when you charge it as it lays on its side.  Most stands on the marketplace now don't place the watch on its side, so you won't be able to take advantage of the rotated face and snooze button of the Nightstand mode using [...]
