A Credit Card On Your Wrist, a Debit Card On Your Keychain – Barclaycard’s bPay Wearable Technology

Recently Barclaycard announced it’s latest foray into RFID-based contactless payment technology, with the Barclaycard bPay system.

By embedding the touch pay system from their credit cards into wristbands, keychains, and specially made anti-tamper stickers, they’re hoping to further encourage their customers to use the ultra-fast payment system.

Why I’m interested in it is because it’s one of the first times a commercial bank has ever ventured into wearable technology.
