W6 Stand is a fun tribute to the original iPod — and a cool Apple Watch charger

Miss the original iPod? Well, you can put it — or least a facsimile of it — on your desktop or nightstand with Elago’s W6 Stand, a $13 retro Apple Watch stand that’s a tribute to Apple’s original music player.

It’s compatible with all of Apple’s smartwatches (Series 1/ Series 2/ Series 3/ Series 4, 38mm, 40mm, 42mm, 44mm) and is compatible with Apple Watch Nightstand Mode. In Nightstand Mode, the smartwatch displays the date and time, along with the remaining charge. If you set an alarm, it also appears on the watch face.

To use the W6, you just place your Apple Watch in the stand for charging. It’s made from scratch-free silicone. This material prevents damage to your Apple Watch and keeps it from sliding around on a desk, table, or nightstand.

The W6 stand is available in white only — as was the original iPod. The Elago product isn’t a must-have item, but it’s fun, practical, and reasonably priced.
