TapStrap’s contactless payment technology is provided by bPay by Barclaycard, which works with any UK-registered Visa or Mastercard debit or credit card.

Sam Rose, director of UK distributor LBS Watch Straps said: “This really is an exciting innovation. TapStrap is all about mobility and convenience, while also maintaining the looks of the wearer’s timepiece.

Rose went on to add: “The bPay by Barclaycard partnership is also really important – it gives wearers peace of mind that this technology is safe and secure.”

Users can activate and manage their device on the go using the bPay app.
