Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock

Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is retailing for S$118 in Singapore but I got mine in Bangkok, Thailand, from iStudio at Siam Paragon for TH฿3,300 (S$131). It is S$13 more expensive than Singapore. Even after the VAT refund of ฿215 (S$8.50), it is still more expensive.

The Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is smaller (measuring at 10.4cm in diameter) and much heavier than I expected (weighing at 154g).

The Mophie Apple Watch Dock is retailing for S$79 at EpiCentre at ION Orchard, iStudio at Paragon, Nubox at Raffles City, and Nubox at Tampines Mall. However, this product is currently out of stock in Singapore as a result of overwhelming demand. So I suggest you call up those stores to reserve one if you are interested in getting it. I hope eventually it will be available online at Apple Online Store (Singapore).

The Mophie Apple Watch Dock is the best Apple Watch stand/dock available in Singapore. I have the Spigen Apple Watch Stand S330 and played with the Griffin WatchStand, and I still prefer the Mophie Apple Watch Dock.

Bought the Apple Watch 42mm Milanese Loop strap for S$218 from Apple Online Store (Singapore) because the 42mm Milanese Loop is sold out at all authorised Apple Resellers.

Placed my order last Thursday, 2nd July 2015 and I received it this Tuesday, 7th July 2015, despite it saying it ships within 5-7 business days.

Bought the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable when I was in UK for holiday. It cost £25 (S$53) excluding tax refund. I can’t really remember how much the tax refund was, but it is probably the same price in Singapore after deducting the tax refund.

The cable is available in two length, 1m and 2m. The 1m Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable is retailing for S$48 while the 2m Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable is retailing for S$58.

Buying The Apple Watch
I was supposed to go to the media launch of the Apple Watch at nubox (Raffles City) if they can reserve a set for me. Because if I went for the event, I would not be able to queue if the queue is short. Unfortunately, they didn’t get back to me till I was in the queue, so I ended up forgoing the media event and joined the queue because it was rather short (I was 36th in line at 8.15am; launch is at 9am). I was intending to buy it online anyway if the queue is long.

The queue was deceiving, it takes about 90 minutes after the official launch timing (9am) to clear 36 people in the queue (I went in about 10.30am). The queue was moving way too slow because they only allowed 2 people into the store at a time (maybe because of Apple’s policy?).
