Wirecard and Kairos Watches have announced a collaboration in the field of mobile payment services for wearables.
Kairos will use Wirecard`s Payment Software Development Kit for its unique offering of hybrid
mechanical smart watches and T-Bands. Wirecard will therefore enable Kairos to offer contactless payment transactions and value added services on every NFC-based terminal around the world.
“Kairos Watches believes that the future of payments is wearable, which is why we chose to partner with Wirecard,” said Sam Yang, Founder and Managing Director of Kairos Watches. “This partnership with Wirecard brings an unparalleled level of convenience and simplicity for smart watch users when it comes to payments.”
Jörn Leogrande, Executive Vice President Mobile Services with Wirecard adds: “The wearable sector is an important driver for secure mobile services like payment, access, ticketing and identification. We are happy to support innovative startups like Kairos which are at the forefront of wearable innovations via our global portfolio of technologies and services.”
Wirecard announced the launch of its Software Development Kit for wearable payment solutions in February 2015.
