While some may call nostalgia a coping mechanism, we prefer to think of it as a guiding style principal. Whether you prefer to watch old TV shows and movies or deck out your room in throwbacks, it can be nice to have some reminders of the past as we chug along toward the future. And when those bits of nostalgia can serve a very modern purpose, the result is amazing.


This $15 silicone stand from Elago gives your Apple Watch a place to sit (and a charge!) while it gives you endless nostalgic entertainment. The stand is the perfect addition to your nightstand. If you use your Apple Watch as an alarm clock, you can just put it in night mode to activate the 1984 computer screen.

If you remove your watch’s band, the stand will turn into a full desktop version of the old Apple computer. There’s even keyboard and mouse components you can add on if you want the full effect. The stand is compatible with every kind of Apple Watch, no matter series or size.
