Twelve South’s Forté brings more Apple design to Apple Watch stands

The Twelve South, after five months experience with its HiRise now brings the Twelve South’s Forté, a refined stand for Apple Watch. Against the earlier HiRise for Apple Watch the new one came with new design that sets closer to Apple’s own concepts. Against the last model that was derived basically from the stand for iPhones, the Twelve South’s Forté got many improvements particular to Apple Watch. Let’s discuss its key parts in detail.

Following Twelve South’s success in stands for iPhones the HiRise for Apple Watch got a similar initial response by users. But unlike the popular HiRise for iPhones the Watch model seemed to have borrowed things. This was really against the expectations of its users who have been sure to expect best out of Twelve South.

Twelve South’s Forté Stand for Apple Watch is made of metal

The Forté as mentioned brings changes in the looks and feels that matches with Apple Watch. Thus on the stand we find the aluminum of HiRise replaced with metal alloy. As you can feel it, ignoring a few points the Forté hardly looks like a third-party accessory.

Unlike other products of Twelve South, the Twelve South’s Twelve South’s Forté comes in a stylish packaging that itself looks like a watch box. Thus while opening up the magnetic closure box, pulling the ribbon you can judge the level it has maintained for the Apple Watch.
