The Apple Watch is already one of the most popular smart wearable devices around. In the past few weeks, we have seen a bunch of Apple Watch charging docks and cases on crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo.

You are going to need a Adafruit Powerboost 1000C, a 2000 mAh lipo battery, a 3D printed enclosure, and a couple of other parts to get started. The final charger is compact and portable. Check Adafruit’s website to find out more information about this project.
