At the start of November, a Sweden company called Boom Watches announced its collaboration with Fidesmo Pay to produce watch straps with an inserted NFC chip. This means that, instead of using the traditional payment cards, users can tap the watch on the terminal and make a payment.
The company specializes in modular and durable watches with interchangeable parts that allow a user to customize the design of the watch with different parts available from the Boom Watches’ collection. With its collaboration with Fidesmo Pay, customers can now pay with a tap of their watch.
