    Today, Swatch announced a new series of watches in the traditional stylish design that are enabled for convenient contactless payment. This innovative approach combines iconic Swatch design with a mobile payment feature that uses Giesecke+Devrient Mobile Security's wearable enablement platform and wearable app as well as an embedded secure element to ensure the security of data and payment transactions. Following its successful launch in China in the summer of 2017, the credit card watch is now available in Switzerland as well.

    Swatch clients can personalize their new watches in Swatch stores using the SwatchPAY! app, developed and designed together with G+D Mobile Security. With the app, the consumer can activate the watch’s payment function linked to his or her personal payment card (Visa/Mastercard credit or debit cards). On the backend, G+D then generates a token of the selected card credential which is loaded to the secure element embedded in the watch via the SwatchPAY! Box available in Swatch stores.
