Apple is reportedly working on an official dock accessory for its first wearable, wanting a piece of this market for itself apparently. The Apple Watch dock has been leaked in all its glory today, with a few images detailing its looks and functionality.
As you can see from the leaked pictures below (click the thumbnails for full size shots), the dock will be able to charge the Apple Watch while the wearable is placed onto it in one of two positions: either lying flat, or standing upright, helped by the middle section of the dock which can be raised if need be.
When the dock's core element is kicked up, it keeps the Apple Watch in a perfect position for you to use the new 'nightstand mode' that's been added in watchOS 2 and can be noticed at work in the third image above.
The Apple Watch dock comes with a 2m Lightning cable, and it's apparently rather heavy. The price in the EU will be €89, which is about $94 at the current exchange rates. It's unclear when it will launch, but given that it seems to be ready for the spotlight we assume that will happen soon.
89Â€? You know what the biggest joke is? People will buy it.
Funny to see how you don't know how to use DOA properly.
you know you don't *have* to buy the dock, or any accessories beyond the basic charging cable (which is included anyway), right? No-one is going to hold your family to ransom until you do, any additional accessories are entirely your own choice.
