The growing popularity of contactless payments is encouraging market vendors to integrate technologies such as NFC into wearable devices such as smartwatches, smart bands, and smart rings. For instance, in 2018, Xiaomi launched its MI Band 3 integrated with NFC chips to support contactless payment. Moreover, several retail players are partnering with payment service providers so that they can accept contactless payments through wearable devices. For instance, in 2019, Target Brands announced that most of its stores in the US have started accepting contactless payment options that enable customers to pay through wearables by holding their devices near the terminal’s card reader. Therefore, the rapid adoption of contactless payment is expected to drive the growth of the global wearable technology market during the forecast period.
