This stand is a bit quirky, designed to hold an iPhone (in portrait or landscape) on one pedestal, and the Apple Watch on another, higher one. It looks a little awkward, and we struggled with the bizarre angle that the Watch sits at. The backwards tilt is ok, but it’s then angled slightly inwards towards the iPhone stand which doesn’t feel quite right. The metal quality and finish aren’t the best, but it’s very lightweight.
The worst element is the clumsy cable solution. The stand’s thinness is nice, but there’s nowhere tidy to trail a charging cable. The iPhone stand doesn’t have this issue as a Lightning connector threads neatly at the front. The DuoStand is well priced, and many will like its dual use, but it’s just not as elegantly executed as most of the others.
