One of the best and most convenient features of the Apple Watch has always been its integrated Apple Pay technology. With just a tap of the wrist on a contactless reader (and sometimes your pin number) you're all squared away and ready to go. 

Barclay's in the UK is bringing that tech to virtually any watch or fitness band with BPay loop. The unassuming device piggybacks onto any strap up to 22mm wide and lets you pay for items up to £30 (about $39) without ever taking out your wallet. While the technology is exclusive to the UK, we can only imagine we'll see similar ideas come our way very very soon.
