For $15 on Amazon, you could do a lot worse than buying this Apple Watch stand, which looks like an original Apple Macintosh computer from 1984.

It’s called the W3 Stand from mobile accessories company, Elago.

Even if you don’t own an Apple Watch, this would be a great gift for someone you know who has one. Hell, I’m getting one for my mother right now.

Check it out:


This is the W3 Stand for Apple Watch by mobile accessory company Elago, which fits the Apple Watch’s nightstand mode perfectly.

It looks nearly identical to the original Apple Macintosh computer that was released back in 1984. Unlike the original Macintosh, the W3 is compatible with all models of the Apple Watch.

It has the floppy drive on the right, just like the original Macintosh, but a tiny replica keyboard and mouse are not included, unfortunately.

Still, you can do a lot more with the Apple Watch in the stand than you could with the original Macintosh computer, which had 128 kilobytes of RAM, or 0.125 megabytes. To put things into perspective, four gigabytes is standard now.


There’s a recessed port inside the stand to house your Apple Watch charger.

And the bottom of the W3 has a thoughtful notch for the charger’s cable.

It’s made of a soft silicone, which Elago reassures won’t scratch your Apple Watch.

Elago also claims the soft silicone rubber makes it easy to insert and remove your Apple Watch.

There’s also a black model. While it looks sleeker, it doesn’t have that vintage “80s tech gray” color theme, which is what we’re all really after.
