A banking platform is upgrading its wearable offerings to enable users to pay with any card anywhere.

FREMONT, CA: "Wearables are fast becoming one of the most convenient ways to pay for things on the go," says Diego Rivas, Curve’s Head of Product OS. "Bringing Curve’s unique all-your-cards-in-one benefits to three of the biggest players in the wearables space, and enabling their customers to be able to pay with any bank using the Curve platform truly cements Curve as the ultimate way to manage all your finances in one place." Curve, a UK-based banking platform, has collaborated with Garmin, Fitbit, and Sony's Wena Pay to expedite the expansion of the wearable solution. The company's unique position as an Over-The-Top banking platform enables customers to integrate all their banking cards into one, facilitating users to pay using any of their cards using Curve.

The wearables are becoming one of the most convenient ways to pay for things on the go, and Curve enables its customers to be able to pay with any bank using the platform, cementing Curve as the ultimate way to manage all finances in one place. The platform has also integrated digital assets like Google Pay and Samsung Pay to deliver its consumers with the liberty of paying with their mobile phones. Curve users who upload a card to the wearable device can now easily pay with any bank, even if it was previously incompatible.

Curve aggregates multiple payment cards via its accompanying mobile app, enabling a user to make payments and withdrawals from just one card. The company is centered on an ambitious opportunity fueled by a couple of trends starting to play out in the market, from financial services to customer experience. Curve enables a host of advantages to its customers; it makes all their cards fee-free while spending abroad, getting instant notifications, and categorization of spend.
