    So I received this on Saturday and I hate it and I'm returning it. It doesn't hold the watch at all, that upper portion is made out of soft silicone. Its backed by a flimsy piece of aluminum and it won't hold the watch in any direction, even with the watch strap closed and as tight as can be. So this is a bust for me, back to the hunt. I'm thinking about either making one myself or getting one that sits low.

    I ended up deciding to keep this one and finding it to be 'okay'. It works well and the basic form-factor is fine, I just wish the base was a little bit heavier. I just need to be a little cautious when I place the watch on it each night. It holds solidly, it's just a little lightweight when you're putting the Watch on it.

    Got stuck on 'Verifying...' for the longest time. I saw on Twitter that rebooting the Watch and iPhone made it get past that point, which it did, and now we're almost done with installation. Looking forward to checking out the new features!

    I just received the new Apple one this morning to replace the Mophie that I was never really happy with. It feels pretty good with a decently heavy base and is also designed to support 'nightstand mode' which should be cool.

    So I decided to go with the Apple Watch stand as well. Not exactly what I was looking for but it's nice.

    We got the 42mm with a white band.

    Eta: I just noticed this was an older thread.
