Nomad doubles down on Apple Watch with Pod Pro charger, Italian leather Strap


Perhaps best known for its excellent Stand for Apple Watch (reviewed here), Nomad Goods today unveiled Pod Pro — a more powerful sequel to its unique portable Pod charging dock for Apple Watch (reviewed here) — and Strap, a premium stitched leather strap similar to an Apple Watch Hermés band, but at a much more affordable price.

Pod Pro expands upon the Apple Watch-only Pod charging puck by boosting both power capacity and device compatibility. Now featuring a 6000mAh battery and an integrated Lightning cable, Pod Pro promises two full recharges of both an iPhone 6 and Apple Watch. Circular with a 98mm diameter, it winds an Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable underneath a space gray metal cap. It’s available for pre-order today at a discounted price of $79, going up to a regular price of $100 on October 15, and shipping October 30.

Strap uses impressively thick genuine Italian leather in only one size — 42mm — and one color, a handsome natural brown with beige contrast stitches. To match the color of your Apple Watch, you can choose from silver or PVD-treated space gray buckles, each made from stainless steel. It’s available for pre-order today at a reduced price of $119, with a full retail price of $150 starting on September 30. Strap ships on October 15. More pictures are below…

  1. I’m sorry, NO leather watch band should cost $150, you can buy a whole leather coat for that price. This is just price gouging because it’s for an Apple device.

    I like this, but will the internal battery suffer if I use it primarily as a pass-through charging station? My Lightning cable always falls off the nightstand, and I charge both devices side-by-side at night, anyway.

    for sure will sell on Amazon for around 30 bucks once they see not many people are paying 150 for 5 usd worth of leather…
