This is Barclays’ latest product to join the family of bPay wearables and it is quite brilliant in its simplicity. The bPay Loop is linked to the free bPay app and it allows to make contactless payments of up to £30.
After inserting a chip into the Loop, you can simply slide it on a bracelet, a watch or a fitness band and tap it to a terminal to pay. I personally love the fact that it’s so tiny and discreet unlike a lot of wearables.
If you can’t afford a smartphone (or smartwatch evolved enough to use Apple or Android Pay), this is an incredibly cost effective alternative as it only costs £9.99. Another perk of this product is that you don’t have to be a Barclays or Barclaycard customer to use it, you can link bPay to any Visa or MasterCard debit or credit card.
