The integration of NFC technology has enhanced the functionality of smartwatches, leading to the incorporation of features that enable contactless payments, tag reading, and data transfer capabilities. Thus, an increase in the number of consumers seeking innovative ways to make contactless payments will boost the demand for NFC technology driven smartwatches.
