    I have developed a high quality all-metal watch stand for the Tag Heuer Connected 45 watch. Unlike the cheap plastic stands sold on the internet, this is made from solid anodized high grade aluminum. I am testing the market to see if there is enough interest among Connected owners to justify a production run. I don't have a firm price yet since it will be highly dependent on the quantity. But it will be in the $200 - $300 range. Please comment!

    Thanks for posting this. Some feedback:
    - While I don't have a connected, I do like the idea of a stand for the watch. The watch does fit nicely in the "puck"but then it's flat on the desk
    - I can't tell from the photos, but for me, it would be important to have a very heavy/ solid base so that it all felt sturdy and strong and not prone to wobble

    Good luck!

    That looks smart, I also don't own a connected but if I did, I'd like a desk stand because I tend to take my watch off when I'm working.

    I don't! I've tried out a couple of Smartwatches, but find that I return back to mechanical.

    Hi ! I DO have a 1st gen connected and I've suffered such lack of proper holders since the beginning. Therefore I like the idea of having a stand.
    I would suggest you adapt the "case" to support also the previous version of the charger (just in case it is not). Finally on the pricing: I personally would not spend more than 150$ for this accessory. I wish you good luck for your idea.
