Since you have to charge your Apple Watch every day or two, why not turn this mundane pattern into something that’s actually useful? That’s where Totm+Travl disrupts the traditional dock's value proposition.

Totm+Travl, the revolutionary new 3-in-1 dock, power bank and home automation kit for the Apple Watch, is live on global crowdfunding platform Kickstarter and trending fast having already more than doubled their raise goal.

Totm+Travl by Padawanlab is a beautiful new minimalistic take on the Apple Watch Docks, offering clean aesthetics and packed with a ton of hidden functionality. The two-part system consists of the Apple Watch Dock, Totm, which is made of Oak derived from French forests and Travl, a smart power bank bursting with features and able to perform several home automation tasks. When stacked, Totm+Travl becomes quite simply, the best Apple Watch dock on the market.

“Our biggest disappointment with the Apple Watch was the mandatory daily charge needed to keep the watch up and running followed by a cable that can never sit correctly on a nightstand. So, we started to think about how we could improve these flaws,” says co-founder Louis Bacquet on the inspiration behind the project. “We began to create several wood supports in our designer’s garage. After several prototypes, Totm was born. With Travl we wanted to go a step further. Why Stop with just a dock? With the development of IOT and connected houses we wanted to be sure that our product could seamlessly merge fashion and function.”

The killer feature for the Totm+Travl is fully integrated automation that works with Apple’s HomeKit. Automations can be set up to be triggered whenever the watch is plugged in, when a charge ends, and when the watch is unplugged. These triggers can be further customized by days of the week, timeframes and even location.

By connecting Totm+Travl to an IFTTT account a user will have access to hundreds of services/channels that offer IOT support which means the triggers can be synced with everything from Spotify accounts, smart lights, thermostats and more. In addition, Travl is exclusively managed via the companion app. Through this app, users can check live data, manage home automations, check charge history and more.

"Since you have to charge your Apple Watch every day or two, why not turn this mundane pattern into something that’s actually useful? That’s where Totm+Travl disrupts the traditional dock's value proposition,” adds Bacquet. “Instead of just being a ‘place to put my watch onto when it charges’… It becomes a ‘place to put my watch and trigger ‘x’ action.’ With services like IFTTT, imagination is the only limitation.”
