My first smart strap arrived last week from laks.com. It's actually a crococalf, with a pocket on the inside that holds an NFC chip from my bank, ABN AMRO. Paying for your drink by swiping the underside of your watch over the terminal is pretty cool.
Now, as a member of this forum I cannot of course be happy with just one brown 20mm strap with this feature. It would be great to have a couple of nice straps with a pocket on the inside, so I can swap the NFC chip, which looks a lot like a SIM card actually, on different watches.
So I guess this is a BOLO for cool watch bands with a pocket on the inside...

I've seen and had straps with embedded writeable NFC chips, but not one like this.
It is just an extra bit, so theoretically it should be easy.Rainshadow wrote:I'll be contacting Martu straps to see if she can do a custom 22mm.
I wonder if one of the Bertucci nylon straps that have a sewn double layer could be modified to have an appropriate pocket.
