Looking to charge your iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time? Consider the Belkin PowerHouse Charge Dock for Apple Watch + iPhone.

This dock features a built-in magnetic charging module for the Apple Watch and a built-in VersaCase Lightning connector to charge your iPhone. The VersaCase Lightning connector can be adjusted by using a wheel behind the dock to accommodate the iPhone case you are using, so you can be sure of a secure fit.

RUNNING SHOES

$189

After many requests from fans, On's Cloud running shoes are now available in a limited edition, all-black model.

It still sports On's iconic Clouds, or hollow pods on the soles of the shoes. These Clouds stretch back on impact to cushion the landing, but lock to form a solid foundation for a powerful push-off during runs.
