Re: Anyone ordered their Token yet?

Would be cool not to carry keys or a CC from time to time.
I'll be doing the same, waiting to see how things pan out. It does look like a cool gadget!

I'd probably just lose mine. They probably wouldn't fit anyway.

They send you the equipment to size it up perfectly before they ship it out.

With all it can do, this looks like an interesting option.   Curious to see how it plays out.

Re: Anyone ordered their Token yet?

The ads are always appealing for such smart devices. Being that this device is only in pre-order phase, as a consumer, I would not be too quick to pre-order. This is why:

Re: Anyone ordered their Token yet?

I will admit I find this interesting but why can't I just use my phone?  My phone can do almost all of this now since it has NFC which I assume is all this uses.

 

I already carry my phone with me just about everywhere I go.  To me it would be cheaper to just create an app that does all of this and not have to pay to have something created for people to wear.

Re: Anyone ordered their Token yet?

Well I would find a ring way more convenient than throwing my phone at things.

 

And I've never worn a ring, like ever.  Interesting gadget, I may give it a try just for novelty's sake.
