If you're looking for a portable battery charger for your Watch, you should check out the Nomad Pod charging dock and battery for the Apple Watch - available on Amazon.com and Nomad’s site for $50 bucks.
The charging pod is essentially a dock with a built in battery, and also comes with a micro USB plug, which is the way you charge it. The pod stays closed through magnets on the inside. This dock uses your existing puck charger, which plugs into a USB port on the inside of the dock, then you roll your cable up on the inside of the dock.
Once fully charged Nomad says it will supply your Apple Watch with up to 3 full charges. It features an 1,800mah internal battery along with side LEDs that will tell you how much power is left in the Pod when the button is pressed.
The pod is great when used flat, however if you’re looking for a stand that can use the Nightstand functionality of the watch, this one is not ideal. We did notice that if you buckle the strap on the back of the Pod, you might be able to prop it up. The pod will also work with most bracelets, for example this black mesh bracelet will open up large enough to fit the Pod.
The Pod is definitely made more for someone that’s frequently on the go and needs to juice up their Apple Watch. It would make a great office charger that’s also portable.
While there’s plenty of other desk charging docks out there, we particularly like the Nomad since it has the ability to function as both a stand and a portable battery. We also think it’s well priced at $50 dollars.
Nomad also sells the Pod Pro, it triples the battery to 6,000mah and also has a built in lightning cable to charge your phone. You can find it on Amazon on sale right now for only $90 bucks.
