Apple unveiled watchOS 2 at WWDC, and Apple Watch users were happy. The first gen of Apple Watch can’t stand on its own, so users had to go out and buy a separate stand, some of which were pretty pricey. They range in price from $20 to $100 and more, depending on what kind of stand a user wants. If a user wants to use Nightstand mode, a Watch has to lay on its side. This allows it to show time and date, with the two side buttons facing towards the ceiling. In this fashion it acts as an alarm clock. Most stands, however, don’t display your watch in this way.
If Apple changes watchOS 2 to support portrait orientation for nightstand mode, it might make a lot of stands obsolete. It’s quite likely user will be shopping for new stands as soon as it comes out.
