Satechi USB-C Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock
Satechi USB-C Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock retails for S$51.99 on Amazon.sg.
Satechi USB-C Magnetic Apple Watch Charging Dock is a one-piece USB-C Apple Watch charger that doesn’t come with any dangling cable. It plugs straight to the USB-C port of your MacBook or your iPad Pro.
The design isn’t exactly a square as it measures 4.39 x 5.08 x 1.14 (cm) and weighs 140 g.
Like all Apple accessories sold by Satechi, this is MFi certified as well.
If your Apple Watch is in Space Grey, it will go well with the charger’s two-tone color of Space Grey and White.
You might have some difficulties using this charger for close-loop Apple Watch straps. Because when placed on a flat surface (like charging from a MacBook), you can’t access the Apple Watch’s charging area without opening the loop.
I am using my Apple Watch with the Space Black Link Bracelet, and hence I need to open the loop to charge my Apple Watch.
However, if this charger is elevated (like charging using your iPad Pro), close-loop Apple Watch straps will not have a problem.
Nevertheless, Satechi USB-C Magnetic Apple Watch Charging Dock is a portable and compact Apple Watch charger that you can throw into your gadget bag.
If you need some emergency charging to your Apple Watch, at least you have a charger. Opening the loop on the Apple Watch strap should be the least of your concerns.
