When average isn't good enough, there's Forté.

  • Designed for: Apple Watch

Forté for Apple Watch is a luxury stand and charging dock carefully designed to match the timeless beauty of Apple Watch, from shape and standards, to fit and finish. Forté elegantly displays your Watch atop the brilliant chrome stand while protecting your band with a buttery soft, top grain leather wrapped base. Forté works seamlessly with your Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable. The 40-degree angle of the Forté arm allows for easy bedside viewing in either Portrait or Nightstand mode. Forté accommodates all Watch bands, from closed-loop Link Bracelets to two-piece styles and Sport models.

A design in perfect sync. 

The design of Forté was clearly inspired by Apple Watch itself. Notice how the base of the chrome stand mirrors the soft, elegant curves seen on Watch’s square case. Forté also matches the minimal design of the Watch. Perched atop this gorgeous stand, Watch appears as if it’s hovering gracefully in midair. As with luxury jewelry, Forté has noticeable weight to it, giving it solid footing for one-handed removal of your Watch.

The bedroom is its Forté.

Knowing many people will charge Watch on a bedside table, we thoughtfully added a 40-degree angle to the Forté arm. This gentle bend makes it easy to see your Watch display while lying in bed. The angled arm also allows your Watch to work beautifully in Nightstand mode. The timeless look of chrome and leather fits right into the decor of any bedroom and bedside table. Underneath Forté a soft silicone base ensures the stand won’t mark the surface you set it on.

Nightly charging the easy way.

Forté works seamlessly with your magnetic charging cable (not included). Simply insert the magnetic disc into the top of Forté, press your cable into the back channel, and place your Watch on top. A polycarbonate chromed ring secures the charging disk and shields the Apple Watch body from any possible contact with the metal construction of Forté. Your cable will be hidden behind stand’s arm so all eyes are on your Watch.

Going on a trip and have to bring your charging cable with you? No problem. All you have to do is reverse the steps above to free your charging cable for travel.


Introducing Forté

Right at home in the powder room.

If your nightly ritual involves removing your contacts, brushing your teeth and washing your face - add charging your Apple Watch to the list. Resting your Watch atop Forté keeps your expensive Watch and band safely floating above the vanity surface and any water drops. Your Watch will be beautifully showcased at an angle that allows you to check the time and see notifications as you get ready for work, a workout or to call it a day.

Forté FAQs

Forté is a “Full-Featured” Apple Watch stand? What does that mean?

You can use Forté with any version of Apple Watch - with any style of band - in both Portrait or Nightstand mode. There are many other stands out there, but most require a compromise or work with only certain styles of Apple Watch. Forté truly can handle any way you wish to use your Apple Watch, and works with ALL styles of Apple Watch you may have now - or get in the future.

Is it easy to remove my Apple Watch Charging Disc for travel?

The simple integrated cable management makes it easy and convenient to remove your cable when traveling. Simply slip off the polycarbonate chromed ring that secures the charging disk, pull out the disc and cable and go.

Where can I buy a Forté Stand for Apple Watch?

Forté is available exclusively at Apple Stores worldwide and right here at twelvesouth.com.

The body of Forté is so heavy, why is the Forté charging disc ring so light?

The Forté charging disc ring secures the Apple Charging disk in place. It is made of chromed polycarbonate to protect the back of the metal Apple Watch and keep it safe from scratches or direct contact with the metal portions of Forté.

What materials is Forté made of?

Forté is constructed of top-grain genuine leather on the top of a heavy-duty chrome plated metal alloy. A polycarbonate chromed ring secures the charging disk itself and effectively shields the Apple Watch from any possible contact with the metal construction of Forté.
