With this CES being the first since the launch of the Apple Watch, the likeness of seeing new accessories was inevitable. Griffin Technology however has announced quite possible my next Apple Watch accessory purchase – a portable power bank that charges your watch and also clips to your keys. The Travel Power Bank is a portable charger with a magnetic ring on the top for the Watch placement, similar to other watch stands. The charger holds a 800mAh battery which can give an Apple Watch up to 4 full charges.
“Our new Travel Power Bank is the Apple Watch accessory users have been waiting for,” said Andrew Biddle, Category Manager of Power Products at Griffin Technology. “With our compact, all-in-one battery and charging cable on hand, users can leave their Apple Watch charging cable safe at home with no worries about running out of power.”
Now this is just for the Apple Watch as it doesn’t include any other USB ports to charge other devices. The Travel Power Bank will retail for $69.99 when it becomes available in Q2.
Griffin will also be releasing some new bands for the Apple Watch. Their Uptown Leather Band will come in at $59.99 which is set to target the 38mm spectrum of customers and offered in multiple colors in Q3 2016.
