When we first saw this effort from Griffin we were put off by its joystick-like design. It’s also far taller than the others and looks ungainly. But with the Watch in place we warmed to it over time. It’s a solid stand and is the only extendable one here. The all-plastic body didn’t bother us and it didn’t feel cheap.
We also liked the fact you can use the front as an iPhone stand too, a bit like the Orzly, but it’s far more subtle and just as useful.
The WatchStand’s best feature is how it holds the Watch. Because it’s so tall you just unfasten a strap, like the Sport band, and drape the bottom part of the strap downwards. If you want the watch to be horizontal you can rotate it easily and it holds firm with the charging cable’s magnet.
