With AirPower MIA, the Nomad Base Station for Apple Watch arrives on the scene

Nomad Base Station for Apple Watch

This morning Nomad has announced a new addition to its ever-expanding lineup of Apple-friendly accessories. The Nomad Base Station for Apple Watch delivers familiar wireless iPhone charging with an added slot for your wearable. With AirPower still nowhere to be found from Apple, Nomad is looking to fill the void with its own solution.

The new Apple Watch version takes the previous generation model and makes a few tweaks, while also adding a $20 premium to its price tag. Head below for more details.

Nomad Base Station for Apple Watch announced

Today Nomad has unveiled its new Base Station for Apple Watch, a wireless charging solution that delivers enough juice to power up all your devices. The latest version takes the familiar pad design of the original Base Station and adds a designated charging slot for Apple Watch.

In typical Nomad fashion, we’re seeing high quality leather materials being used,making the Base Station a nice accompaniment to your nightstand. It features three integrated wireless coils capable of pushing out speeds up to 7.5W. That means it will work well with all of the latest iPhones. The designated charging area for Apple Watch allows users to take advantage of Nighstand mode.

Designed to be the premium personalized charging experience for Apple Watch and iPhone owners. Base Station Apple Watch integrates a sleek, modern design with a functional wireless charging hub. With 3 high-power charging coils and a built-in Apple Watch charger, Base Station Apple Watch creates a frictionless charging experience.

Unlike the base model, you won’t find any extra charging ports on the backside. Nomad dropped both of the USB-C and A power supplies on the rear, likely in exchange for the Apple Watch functionality. That drops some of the versatility here, but if you’re on all of Apple’s latest generation devices then it probably isn’t an issue.

With AirPower nowhere to found, Nomad steps in

Apple first teased AirPower over a year ago at its keynote address. Over the last year-plus, Apple has wavered on when this much-anticipated accessory will be unveiled. The latest predictions suggest a 2018 launch is still possible, but frankly, we’re not holding our breath.

The Nomad Base Station for Apple Watch offers similar capabilities, but ultimately lacks some of the in-house functions that Apple can provide with AirPower. That said, if you’re itching for an all-in-one wireless solution for your nightstand, this new release may fit the bill.

Nomad Base Station for Apple Watch available today

The new Nomad Base Station for Apple Watch is available for order today for $119.95. That’s a $20 markup from the non-Apple Watch model. It ships in the standard black color with a wall charger.

If you’re just in the market for a wireless charger, we can whole-heartedly recommend this affordable option from Anker.
