Contactless payment watch strap ‘TapStrap’ has now launched in the UK.
In partnership with bPay by Barclaycard, the new strap, which turns any watch into a smartwatch, is now available in the UK.
TapStrap offers convenience with a new method of on-the-go contactless payment that works in sync with existing timepieces, enabling the wearer to make purchases of up to £30.
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.
