With all the Apple Watch news and excitement today, we are beginning to see accessory makers release products meant to complement the latest product out of Cupertino. San Francisco-based bag company WaterField Designs is putting out its first line of Apple Watch related accessories. Today, the company previewed two products meant to serve as a home for your Apple Watch, while it is away from your wrist. Both the Leather Time Travel case and Apple WatchPad offer simplistic solutions to protecting this device during charging and when you’re away from home.
Head below for more information, pictures and full PR.
WaterField Design’s Time Travel Apple Watch case comes in two materials, leather for $59 and ballistic nylon for $49. The leather option ships in multiple colors, including black, camel, red or green. It is lined with Ultrasuede to protect the Apple Watch from scratches, and includes multiple pockets for storing extra bands and charging cables. The Time Travel case is available for order today.
Additionally, WaterField has announced the WatchPad, which is designed as a soft landing place when charging your Apple Watch. For $17, you get a naturally-tanned full grain piece of leather to rest the device on. It is embossed with a WaterField design logo and has one finished side for laying the Apple Watch on. The WatchPad is available in black or grizzly leather for order today.
While these are early attempts at Apple Watch accessories, we expect to see many more coming down the pipeline. We’ve already seen a charging station from DODOcase that is made out of wood and offers many of the same natural design cues that we are seeing from WaterField Designs. We’ll continue to showcase the coolest new Apple Watch accessories as they are released.
WaterField Rolls Out Leather Time Travel Apple Watch Case and Apple WatchPad
WaterField Designs announces the elegant Time Travel Apple Watch Case to organize Apple Watch accessories. The Time Travel Case stores extra watchbands, an Apple Watch charger, Bluetooth ear buds and other small accessories within its buttery leather exterior and its plush, padded interior pockets. WaterField’s new leather WatchPad provides an elegant, protective surface for the Apple Watch while charging.
“Many of the accessories we design function to keep gear organized and accessible,” explained owner Gary Waterfield. “We created something elegant for the beautiful Apple Watch—the Time Travel Case keeps the Watch accessories organized for daily use or travel. The WatchPad is a simple, refined resting place for your Apple Watch. Keep it by your bedside, plug in your watch, lay it down, and charge away.”
Hand-crafted from supple, full-grain leather, the Time Travel Apple Watch Case organizes and protects Apple Watch accessories with soft, padded interior pockets: two on one side cradle the Watch charger and another small item, and one long, Ultrasuede®-lined pocket on the opposite side accommodates spare watchbands or even the Apple Watch itself when not in use. The Ultrasuede® liner acts as a screen cleaner for the Watch face. A smartphone or Bluetooth ear buds fit neatly in the middle compartment. Storing the Watch in the front pocket while charging keeps it in place and cushioned on a protective bed.
The Time Travel Apple Watch Case is available in six, naturally deer-tanned, cowhide leather colors or in lightweight black ballistic nylon. A self-locking zipper closes around two sides to secure contents. The WatchPad, a precision-cut, full-grain leather pad is available in black or grizzly brown.
