If you’ve read our reviews about Monowear’s Apple Watch accessories, but you were wondering if they’d ever put out a stand so you could charge your precious smartwatch and your iPhone, then you’re in luck.
Dan and I recently did reviews of some of Monowear’s products for the Apple Watch. We were both pleased with the design and quality of their bands. They have just released a new take on band design that combines open loop and closed loop options. The new leather deployment bands retail for $89.99 and are really cool. Let’s take a look!
