The Apple Watch has been out since April 2015 but while there are plenty of options when it comes to case colours, materials and straps through Apple, it only offers one official docking station for holding the Watch. The Magnetic Charging Dock activates nightstand mode and the Watch will recharge on its side or flat across the pad but it only comes in white, which might not be exciting enough for some.

Without a dock or stand however, your Watch will sit on the bedside table or desk with the circular charger attached and depending on how much time you spend attaching the cable and positioning the device, it will either be upright or on its side. This might not bother some, but considering the Apple Watch costs a minimum of £299, we feel it deserves a little bit of love when it's not on your wrist.

With that in mind, we have rounded up some of the best Apple Watch stands and docks we have come across in the gallery. Several well-known case companies have got on board with the stands, from Spigen and Belkin to Griffin Technology and you can read a little more about Apple's own option too so it's well worth checking out what is on offer if you don't want to leave your Apple Watch lying on the side.

We will be updating this feature as more catch our eye so keep checking back if none of these tickle your fancy. For those still deciding what Apple Watch to get, you can find all the options available here and we have also rounded up a few accessories too, which can be found here.
