Elago’s New ‘W6 Stand’ Turns Your Apple Watch Into an iPod

Elago is known for selling Apple Watch stands that house Apple's wearable device inside cute replicas of older tech, like a classic Macintosh or an original Nintendo Game Boy. The company is back this week with its latest product, the W6 Stand, which is designed to look like an iPod Classic.


The W6 Stand works with all Apple Watch models and is compatible with Nightstand Mode. The accessory is made of a scratch-free silicone that protects the Apple Watch when it's sitting inside the stand. To use it, users simply place the Apple Watch's inductive charging puck into the stand's cutout and slide their Apple Watch into the opening for the iPod's "display."

Elago is selling the W6 Stand in White and Black on its own website and on Amazon. The accessory is cheaper on Amazon, where it's priced at $12.99 for the white color option, while on Elago's website it's running for $14.99 for both colors.


Besides the previous W3 Stand for Apple Watch, Elago has also released the M4 Stand for iPhone, which turned an iPhone 7, 6s, or 6 into a classic Mac.

Elago’s New ‘W5 Stand’ Turns Your Apple Watch Into an Original Nintendo Game Boy

Last year, accessory company Elago launched the W3 Charging Stand for Apple Watch, which turned Apple's modern wearable into a classic Macintosh. This week, Elago announced the latest iteration of its classic stand lineup, this one called the Elago W5 Stand, modeled after the original Nintendo Game Boy.


The stand works with all Apple Watch models, is compatible with Nightstand Mode, and includes a cutout to place your inductive puck charger (not included) into the stand. The stand is made from scratch-free silicone, which the company says protects the watch while it's in the stand and prevents it from moving around.


The W5 Stand comes in four colors according to an image on Elago's website: Red, Indigo, Black, and Light Grey. As of writing, only Black and Light Grey are available to purchase on Elago.com and Amazon. The stand is cheaper on Amazon, running for $14.99.

Elago Launches ‘Wrist Fit’ Accessory to Store Your AirPods on Your Apple Watch Band

Elago, the company that previously launched the W3 Stand to turn an Apple Watch into a classic Macintosh, this week announced the "Wrist Fit" for Apple's AirPods. The $14.99 Wrist Fit is a small silicone strap that slides onto an Apple Watch band, providing two small slots where you can store your AirPods and reach them with ease.


The company says that Wrist Fit is compatible with "most" Apple Watch bands, like the Sport Band, Sport Loop, Classic Band, Leather Loop, and more. It also promises that the accessory will "securely" hold your AirPods so that they will "not get loose or slide out over time."
Lightweight and slim fitting. Perfect place to store your AirPods while you work out or when you run out of battery.

Hold your AirPods securely. It does not get loose or slide out over time. Keep your AirPods close at all times!
The Wrist Fit provides two options for carrying AirPods on your wrist: you can use the included black silicone strap to only carry the AirPods, or take off the small silicone attachment and slide it onto a compatible Apple Watch band. Elago says the attachment fits both 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch bands.

Elago has a few other AirPods-related accessories, including a Waterproof Hang Case, Silicone Case, Leather Case, Carrying Clip, EarPads, and more. The company also has a colorful line of Duo Cases for AirPods that lets users switch out parts of the case to add a hint of personalization to the AirPods Charging Case.


Following the success of the W3 Stand, Elago released the M4 Stand to make an iPhone 7, 6s, or 6 look like an old Macintosh computer from 1984. Similar to the Apple Watch accessory, the M4 Stand lets users slide their iPhone into the side of the silicone housing, and a pass-through rail underneath the stand allows for Lightning cable organization.

In terms of price, the W3 Stand is currently $9.99 on Amazon and the M4 Stand is $25.99 on Amazon (both in "Classic White"). More recently, Elago debuted the W4 Stand to mimic Apple's colorful iMac G3 line of computers from 1998.

For now, the Wrist Fit only appears to be available on Amazon in the United States, and it's running for $14.99.
