How to: Make your Samsung Gear S3 box into a charging stand

The box that comes with your Gear S3 has a nice little design that makes it stand out from the crowd, but there’s more functionality to it. Instead of tossing it into the rubbish (trash) you can actually convert it into an attractive charging stand for your Gear S3 Classic or Gear S3 Frontier wearable tech, which not a lot of people know about.
There is nothing hard about it, just a little bit of simple assembly is all that it takes. Below are some pictures and a video to show you exactly how to set it up.

  1. Open up the box and remove all the items. Put back anything that you do want to keep such as the watch strap and getting started manual.
  2. Plug in the charger where you want to keep your new charging stand
  3. Feed the charging cable through the hole in the charging tray.
  4. Plug the charging cable into the Gear S3 wireless charging dock.Samsung-Gear-S3-Classic-Frontier-Tizen-Charging-Stand-Box-Charger-4
