Smart watches are becoming increasingly popular and increasingly useful. Keeping them straight while charging makes them even more useful!

Why FIRSTSTAND ?

My watch worked great when worn on my wrist. But with it resting on the table, I always needed to twist my head 90 degree to read the display. If “BlackBerry thumb” once threatened our hands, surely there must be a way to overcome “smart watch neck!”

  Manage your cables at the same time

              They belong together

FIRSTSTAND has been designed and tested for compatibility with these popular devices:

If you have a different smart watch model from those listed above, please let us know. We’ll try to get a unit and verify compatibility so we can update our list accordingly.

So what have we done so far?

 

FIRSTSTAND & FIRSTSTAND PLUS

FIRSTSTAND & SECONDOCK

We learned a lot during our previous project, SECONDOCK. We did not give up. SECONDOCK is available in our combo packages. We welcome your support again!

Risks and challenges

Defining the geometry of the stand was the most critical part of our design process. Functionally, the watch must slide into and out of the stand easily and securely, while offering a striking presentation aesthetically.

With these goals in mind, we made several prototypes and distributed them to let smart watch owners test what worked, and what didn’t. From their feedback, we found that docking the watch was not enough – owners wanted to dock their phones too, to consolidate space and charging ports. Therefore, we went back to the drawing board and redesigned FIRSTSTAND without sacrificing the primary benefits of a smart watch dock. The result of this assessment is the CNC slot added on the side of the stand.

We met with many suppliers along the way, visited several factories, and tested loads of samples. Finally we partnered with an aluminum manufacturing specialist, putting the capacity of over 100 high-precision CNC machines at our disposal. Our factory has 12 years of experience and a complete quality management systems including ISO9001, ISO14001, and TS16949.

We are confident in our design, confident in our ability to deliver, and confident that you will love your FIRSTSTAND.
