Smartening up your pocketbook: Wallor Wearables launch connected wallet to protect from contactless theft
Tuesday, 29th November: Wallor Wearables, the luxury connected brand, has today announced the launch its new smart, handcrafted wallet range for the modern man.
The ‘Wallor’, which is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, includes in-built Bluetooth and GPS functionality coupled with automatic push notifications to ensure users never forget their wallets again. Tap your wallet twice, and users can also locate misplaced phones.
Made of the highest-quality leather and RFID blocking material, Wallor also protects from contactless card ‘skimming’ — a growing concern in the US as associated fraud rose from $516,500 in the first six months of 2015 to $2.9 million in the same period this year.
Keen to keep the bulk down, however, Wallor boasts the slimmest wallet on the market at only 6.5mm thickness. The wallet is also accompanied by a ‘Fidelity App’, enabling users to register loyalty cards and lighten the load.
Viorel Cretu, CEO at Wallor Wearables said: “If you speak to men about their wallets, you’ll often hear complaints of poor, uninspiring and bulky designs that only just squeeze into pockets. We wanted to go beyond simple functionality, and combine the best in luxury and technology to create an elegant solution. After all, we use our wallets every day — why shouldn’t they be comfortable and practical?”
The Wallor range comes in a selection of nine colours and three designs. For further information, please visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wallorco/wallor-the-slim-wallet-combining-luxury-and-techno/updates
