Tappy launches biometric watch strap

Hong Kong based wearable payment technology company Tappy Technologies has launched a passive biometric enabled watch strap that offers payments, access & digital authentication functionalities.

Speaking on the product launch Wayne Leung, CEO of Tappy Technologies said, “At Tappy we continually challenge ourselves to offer the most secure, seamless & enjoyable wearable contactless payment experience to our customers. By introducing passive biometric payments through watch straps, we are raising the bar even higher as we enable second factor authentication in the most secure format.

The ultimate aim is to facilitate higher value transactions through all types of wearable devices. Highly sophisticated algorithms ensure that our unique biometric sensors perform flawlessly without the need of a battery. This is crucial especially for our watch brand partners as the design aesthetics of the watch remains uncompromised. Some of the biggest watch brands, card networks and banks are our trusted customers and we strongly believe that the future of wearable payments will be biometric.”

For now, though, the technology remains only in the reach of the super-rich, but with the world’s first commercial windowless plane already in the pipeline, it may be only a matter of time before the concept is adapted.
