The first Apple Watch models will get into the hands of regular consumers on April 24. However, supplies are extremely limited, and some Apple fans may have to wait until later this summer to finally get the watch they pre-ordered. If you are getting ready to bring an Apple Watch into your home, there are a number of cool accessories you should have at the ready. One nice accessory is a charging dock or charging stand, which will allow you to display your Apple Watch to visitors, quickly recharge your device, and keep an eye on your watch when its not on your wrist. There are lots of cool charging docks out there, and you should find a design that appeals to both your personal taste and your budget.

After dropping some serious cash to be one of the first people to own an Apple Watch, it’s only fitting that you give your new smartwatch a great stand. Here are five cool charging docks/stands that will appeal to new Apple Watch owners.

This inexpensive charging stand from Spigen gives Apple Watch owners a place to display and charge their new smartwatch, but at a price that won’t make them flinch.

Do note that this stand does not have an internal charger. You will need to use this stand with your own Apple Watch charging cable.
