What are Contactless Payment Wearables

Revolutionizing Transactions with Payment Wearables

In today's fast-paced world, technology is transforming how we handle everyday transactions. Astari Wearables is at the forefront of this revolution, offering stylish, sustainable, and highly functional contactless payment wearables. Our range of products, including payment rings, bracelets, and keychains, utilizes advanced NFC technology for secure, convenient, and eco-friendly payments.

Understanding Contactless Payment Wearables

We leverage NFC technology to enable quick and secure payments by simply tapping the wearable near a payment terminal. This technology is similar to that found in contactless credit and debit cards, ensuring secure and instantaneous transactions. We offer a variety of devices, each designed to cater to different preferences and lifestyles.

The Technology Behind Astari's Wearables

NFC Technology

NFC technology is the backbone of our contactless payment wearables. It enables wireless communication between the wearable and a payment terminal when they are in close proximity, ensuring fast, reliable, and secure payments. Certified NFC chips are embedded within Astari’s rings, bracelets, and keychains, allowing for seamless transactions with just a simple tap.

Passive Technology

One standout feature of our wearables is their passive technology. Unlike many electronic devices that require frequent charging, Astari’s wearables are completely passive. This means they do not need to be charged and can be worn 24/7 without emitting any radiation. Analog technology ensures that the devices are always ready for use.

Digital Wallet Integration

Our wearables integrate seamlessly with digital wallets via the Curve app. This setup allows users to link multiple payment cards to a single wearable, providing flexibility and control over finances. Users can switch between cards or set up smart payment rules for different types of transactions.


The Convenience of Astari Wearables

Always On Hand

Astari’s payment wearables offer unmatched convenience. With these devices, your contactless payment method is always on hand, allowing you to leave your wallet, purse, and phone at home. Whether you’re running, heading to the gym, or running errands, Astari’s wearables ensure that you’re always prepared.

No More Charging

Our wearables’ passive technology means you never have to worry about charging your device. This significant advantage over other electronic payment methods allows you to enjoy the convenience of contactless payments without the hassle of keeping your device powered up.

Travel-Friendly Payment Devices

Astari wearables are ideal for frequent travelers. Accepted wherever contactless payments are available, these devices allow you to manage your finances efficiently, no matter where you are. When you combine the wearables with Curve, they offer competitive foreign transaction fees, helping you save money while earning rewards and cashback.

Sustainable Wearables

Astari Wearables is deeply committed to sustainability. We use eco-friendly materials like ceramic and vegan apple leather, which are both durable and environmentally friendly. This focus on sustainability extends to the entire product lifecycle, from sourcing materials to manufacturing processes.

Apple Leather Accessories

Our use of vegan apple leather is particularly noteworthy. Made from the waste products of the apple industry, this material provides a sustainable alternative to traditional leather. It is durable and aesthetically pleasing, ideal for fashion-conscious consumers who are also environmentally aware.

Ceramic Wearables

The ceramic used in our rings is another example of our commitment to sustainability. Ceramic is long-lasting, scratch-resistant, and environmentally friendly. It is an excellent choice for creating wearables that withstand daily life’s rigors while maintaining their appearance.

Security and Privacy

Secure Transactions

Security is a top priority for Astari. Our wearables use the same NFC technology found in bank cards, ensuring that transactions are secure and financial data is protected. Only small and limited transactions can be made without confirming it with your PIN code, just like you are already used to with regular payment cards.

Privacy Protection

Astari wearables ensure that your personal information is kept private during transactions. Unlike traditional payment methods that might expose your card number or personal details, our wearables communicate directly with the payment terminal using encrypted data. This means your sensitive information is never visible to prying eyes, providing peace of mind with every transaction.

Easy Setup and Management

Manage Mii Setup

Setting up an Astari wearable is a straightforward process, thanks to the Manage Mii app. Download the app, activate your account, and start adding your debit and credit cards to your wearable. The app allows you to (temporary) freeze your wearable when needed and control all the things you need. You can change the card connected when you want or need to, without any additional charges. 

Smart Payment Rules

WIth the Curve app it enables you to set up smart rules for your payments. For example, you can designate one card for groceries and another for larger purchases. This functionality ensures that your payments are allocated to the correct account without needing manual adjustments.
