LG G Watch Cradle
Early adopters of the LG G Watch have been limited by the proprietary nature of the G Watch’s charging cradle, if you stuck it to your bedside table, the thought of trying to peel it off to take away with you on a trip has sent shudders down many a spine. The good news is, as of this morning the LG G Watch Charging Cradle is now available to purchase from Google Play. Samsung Gear Live owners will have to wait a little longer for a spare dock for their Android Wear watch, as nothing is showing in Google Play as yet.

There is a $4 ‘Australia Tax’ – with the cradle priced at $23.90, while our US friends pay $19.99, still, it could be worse. The charging cradle is set to leave the warehouse – presumably based in Hong Kong again – in 1 – 2 business days, so in theory it could be yours fairly quickly if you need one.

There is, naturally, a shipping charge on top to get your charger (we’ll be checking with local retailers today to see if the cradle is available locally). The charger has two shipping options:

  • Saver (6-8 Business Days) – $4.50
  • International Priority (2-7 Business Days) – $10.95

Some pretty basic technical specifications for the Charging Cradle, and unfortunately for those who ordered a White & Gold version, there’s no option for a colour matched charging cradle :

  • Size: 47.5 X 38.9 X 9.95(mm)
  • Color: Black
  • Weight: 29g

In the box you’ll find the Charging cradle, a Micro USB Cable, Warranty Card and WEEE Card (whatever that is). If you’re after a spare charging cradle, head on over to Google Play and place your order now.
