I got bored after work today and my girl was still working so I did something I'd been wanting do for a while. I took the LG cradle,
the Logitech cradle (no longer functional), a screwdriver, a boring tool and some super glue and made a decent charging
stand for my Watch Urbane.

I had to unscrew (3 phillip screws) the bottom of the Logitech cradle to enable access to the holes so I could bore them out big
enough to insert the charging cable. Originally I was going to rap it around the back, but I decided that threading the cable through
the cradle would present a much cleaner appearance.

Since the Logitech cradle is weighted and bears the weight of the mouse it easily bears the weight of the watch as well
therefore the possibility of the watch and cradle tipping over is not an concern.

I did this while eating snacks and watching a movie so it was actually very easy and could have been done in less
than the 2 hours it took me. All and all I'm satisfied with the results..

I did basically the same thing with an old micro USB dock and didn't have to modify anything. I just plugged the Urbane charger into the micro USB plug.
