Wearable devicesWearable devices, as technology advances, are evolving into much more than just fitness trackers, they’re now incorporating contactless payment capabilities. Major corporations are heavily investing in the potential of wearable payment technologies. Thanks to near field communications (NFC) technology, contactless payments have seamlessly integrated into the realm of smartphone users, heralding a new era of convenience and security.
