Swatch Group confirms NFC technology inside watches!


Mr. Hayek said Swatch had figured out ways around those perceived limitations. Rather than launching a dedicated smartwatch, Swatch is integrating some smart functions into its existing lineup of timepieces by using a wireless technology known as near-field communication (NFC).

The NFC technology will allow the watches, which will range from the company’s eponymous plastic brand to its high-range Omega line, to be used for tasks like cashless payments and hotel-room access. The technology consists of a tiny chip and an antenna, so the watches won’t require daily recharging.
