The Apple Watch Has a Secret Charging Port

Pin It
Just when you thought your Apple Watch couldn't get any cooler, we find out it's been hiding a secret feature from us.

The makers of the Reserve Strap accessory discovered that our new favorite gadget has a secret charging port and they've now designed a band that will charge the watch while you wear it.

"We've developed and tested a completely rethought design that takes advantage of the 6 pin port underneath the band slide of the Apple Watch," they said in a statement on their website. "This port hadn't been deciphered by anyone until now but we've been able to make significant enough observations so far to warrant shifting our development focus to this new method."

They also shared this pic on Twitter, showing you exactly how and where the port is and how their new wristband will engage with it: If you want to see more of the nuts and bolts of it, they also released this drawing: The Reserve Strap be available in White, Gray and Black and will fit both the 38mm and 42mm case sizes. It is currently available for pre-order and the first batch will be shipped exclusively to the pre-order customers in the fall.
