Every Apple Watch deserves a high-quality stand to keep it safe while charging on your office desk and pulling double-duty as an alarm clock on your nightstand. If you’ve deprived your Apple Watch of this luxury, today’s your chance to make amends. Exclusively for 9to5Toys readers, Spigen is offering its aluminum Apple Watch Stand for just $6.99 on Amazon when coupon code 9TO5AWSS is entered during checkout. That’s a price drop of $9 off the regular price of $16. Free shipping is available for Prime members and on orders of at least $49. Even if you already have an Apple Watch stand, at just $6 it’d be smart to pickup another one (or two!) for backup, a gift or a second office. This deal is only valid for today.

Its overall style is reminiscent of an iMac stand so it’ll complement all your Apple gear. Along with being construed from durable aluminum, Spigen’s S330 stand also features a TPU docking area to keep your Apple Watch scratch-free.

Binoculars have been around for centuries, playing a key role in military operations, astronomy and ornithology, with many other uses as well. The beauty of this technology lies in its commonality and use amongst professionals and hobbyists alike. A wide range of price points make it easy to find a pair that fits your needs.

However, visually it’s a product that could use a little boost. That’s where Leica comes in. For nearly 170 years, the camera and optics company has been cranking out beautifully designed products. A new collaboration with Italian carmaker Zagato has rendered a limited edition run of 1,000 of the most gorgeous binoculars we have ever seen. expand full story
