Three cool new Apple Watch accessories from CES 2016

Three cool new Apple Watch accessories from CES 2016

The annual Consumer Electronics Show techfest kicked off in Las Vegas earlier today, so the rest of this week – especially the first few days – will see a barrage of new products launched, released or teased. And as expected, there's plenty of accessorising for the Apple Watch.

Belkin's stylish Apple Watch Valet Charge Dock (US$90) features an integrated magnetic charger, a solidly weighted base and a solid chrome arm angled so that the Apple Watch is perched at an ideal viewing angle – as long as you don't want to run the WatchOS2 Nightstand mode, which is designed for use when the watch is laying on its side in 'landscape' mode.

Griffin's Travel Power Bank (US$70) is a nifty little Apple Watch charger that's small enough to be attached to your keyring.

Juice up the 800mAh battery through the supplied micro-USB cable and there's enough power to recharge your Apple Watch at least three times.

Another novel power solution is the US$20 Standzout Helix Dock: a plastic shell which turns the Apple Watch's USB charger and magnetic charging cable into a compact 'charging platform' which plugs directly into an AC outlet.

We'll file more CES 2016 updates on tech for the business traveller throughout this week.

    Nah, we missed something – we missed hitting the right key! It's $90 not $900! :P

    I like the concept of the Standzout Helix Dock. But is it safe? I'm no electrician or electrical engineer, but what happens when you coil an electrical cable like that and run a current through it?
