It’s interesting to see how something as simple as paying for your groceries has changed over the years. In the 90’s people primarily payed with cash, or checks. Swiping your debit card seems to be one of the more common ways to check out, but another method has slowly been gaining steam. While it still requires a debit or credit card, contactless NFC payment systems like MasterCard’s PayPass don’t even require you to swipe your card, though you still have to fish it out of your pocket. But with the Watch2Pay, you won’t even need to do that.
Looking much like an ordinary wristwatch, it comes with a special SIM card that is linked to a reloadable MasterCard. Whenever you’re checking out somewhere that supports PayPass, you can simply tap your watch on the reader to complete the transaction. When you order the watch, you’ll receive a regular-sized card, along with a SIM for your watch. This means you won’t be in a bind when you’re somewhere that doesn’t support PayPass. It looks like the watch is only available in the UK, for a price of £99.00.
