I’ve been using the Helix Dock for Apple Watch for a couple of weeks now, both at home and while traveling.
Standzout created the Helix Dock as a storage/charging hybrid solution for your Apple Watch. It is a compact housing that stores up to two meters of your existing Apple Watch charging cable allowing you to reduce cable clutter and save time.
I’ll start with the not-so-great. Set up requires a little work and will probably take a few attempts, as it did with me. It requires winding the cord tightly and accurately around the middle of the unit in order to slide the outer casing over it. It’s easy to wrap loosely, so you may end up having to redo it a couple of times before it all snaps together.
A major requirement for the Helix Dock is having a spare outlet in a convenient position. I’m not sure about your situation but in my home the outlets are all at ankle height and pretty out of the way. The case itself is nicely shaped and reasonably well designed. However, I would prefer a higher grade of plastic. Unfortunately, it feels a little cheap and brittle.
Now with all the not-so-great points out of the way, it’s time for the good points.
Why you should consider purchasing a Helix Dock for Apple Watch?
Once the initial set-up is done, you’ll never have to worry about the cord again. No more fraying, tangling, ugly cords running all over your room. It’s small, compact, and even easier to use.
However the biggest point in it’s favor is that the Helix Dock shines while traveling. Having the cord in a compact unit makes it easy to pack and there is no longer a worry of pesky tangling cords. It overall size is a good balance between large enough to not get lost while being small enough to not feel bulky.
Hotel rooms, airports, and so on, usually have a good few outlets around so all of a sudden this dock becomes a real asset. The small form factor is highlighted at times like these.
If you’ve got an outlet at home at a convenient spot, this should definitely appeal to you.
If you travel regularly, I’m sure you’ll appreciate it.
