Wearable (e.g. ring, wristband)

Now THERE’S a solution looking for a problem, if ever I saw one :flushed:

I also suggest reusable coffee cup with build-in NFC Curve card Reusable coffee cup with build-in NFC card

So… how’s the reusable bit of this work out, @pawelnyczaj?

I mean something similar to this Costa Coffee cup with NFC chip https://www.which.co.uk/news/2018/12/costa-coffee-launches-first-ever-contactless-payment-reusable-cup/

I see it’s from December 2018

How did it go them ?

Wouldn’t it be great if Curve card was available in a wristband form?

It could be a great low tech substitute for a Google/Apple/Garmin/Fitbit Pay smartwatch for people that do not want, need or are dissatisfied with current offer of battery-powered wearables, or their bank does not support their preferred ecosystem.

I almost always pay with my phone (don’t have a smartwatch) but carry Curve card as a backup. However if Curve was available on my wrist I would use it instead.

Now THIS I could live with. Like the idea of not requiring the user to shell out for a smart phone.

I’ll take one, thanks. :grinning:

Thanks, @poeliev - moved!

Can the topic be renamed to “Ring/wristband/wearable” please?

I would be super keen for this. I have pingit loop on my watch which acts like a prepayment card. If I could get a mini curve card in the sim card size slot in the loop I could have all my cards on my wrist

I was wondering if there are any plans to release a NFC payment ring like https://mykring.com/en/ with Curve. It seems like a killer feature to me. Then again it could just be me…

£5 annual fee from year 2
£5 account closure fee
3% on foreign transactions

Hell no!

@Gaoler I’m not suggesting Curve hook up with MyKRing and charge those fees. I was just using the tech as an example…

@poeliev Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Everything looks very well covered above… I’ll search harder next time.

a band would be great, as would a neck tag
