The Orzly NightStand – What makes it the perfect Apple Watch Stand
Early last year we introduced the in-house designed Orzly DuoStand. A unique cradle to conveniently charge both your Apple Watch as well as your iPhone. With it's brushed aluminium frame, the DuoStand was a popular choice for many, however not all veered towards it.
Begin the development of the Orzly NightStand
The announcement of OS 2.0 for the Apple Watch introduced a brand new feature to the Apple Watch. Night Stand mode. This was something quite simple, but transformed your watch into an alarm clock when you charged the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch now became a device that you wouldn't just charge at your desk or dressing table. Keeping it on your bedside table now became a convenient place to charge the watch overnight.
The above design was compact and minimalistic, but without the support for the Apple Watch, pressing any of the buttons would result in the watch detaching from the magnetic charger. Designing a support that accommodated both the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watches was essential to the design.
Before reaching a final design, other sketches were created, all were novel but had flaws which could alienate some users who wanted something more aesthetically universal.
The final design
The final design of the Orzly Night Stand was based on the first sketch above. With an additional platform for support, the ledge has been designed to hold both the 38mm and the 42mm Apple Watch without the need for any extra parts. The Night Stand is made from an entire piece of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) meaning the chances of it breaking are close to 0%. It also carries a a fair bit of weight meaning it will remain in a fixed position without being easily knocked over, but just to make sure a 3M adhesive tape at the base ensures it remains fixed to a desk, bedside table or even a car dashboard.
So why is the Orzly NightStand the perfect Apple Watch Stand?
• Compatible with the OS 2 night stand mode
• No additional parts needed to hold either the 38mm or 42mm Apple Watch
• Weighted to stop it being knocked over
• Tidy cable management
• Compact and portable
• Angled to make for easy viewing
The Orzly NightStand is also available in a variety of other colours to match the colours of the Apple Watch Sports Band
