If your Apple Watch looks a little forlorn charging on your bedside table each night, perhaps it needs a new friend. The W3 stand from Elago could be just the thing—it’s an affordable, adorable stand that makes your Apple Watch look like a classic Macintosh 128K. 

The stand itself is made of scratch-free silicon material and works fine with a first- or second-gen Apple Watch. To get it set up, first just slide your wireless watch charger in a slot hidden inside the stand. Then you just drop in your Apple Watch from the top of the stand to charge. The screen of your watch aligns perfectly with the “screen” of the stand’s tiny vintage Mac design. It’s compatible with Nightstand Mode, which was introduced in WatchOS 2. 

The stand—which, really, is so cute we can hardly stand it—is available for $14.89 from the Elago Store.
