RumbaTime Go Watches can do wireless payments, carry medical info
by Mark R
What you are seeing here isn’t just your ordinary low-priced digital watch. This is the RumbaTime Go Watch, and it could easily be the future.
The purpose of the RumbaTime watch is not just to tell time. However, it does have a stopwatch, alarm, and backlight mode like normal watches. What makes it different is that this watch contains your medical information and allows you to make wireless payments.
You heard me right. All you need to do is go to the official RumbaTime Go site and set up an account using the 8-digit VITAnumber listed on each watch. From there, you enter in vital medical information that can be scanned in case of an accident. You can also set up an account for wireless payments on certain types of payment scanners that are becoming quite popular now. There is a video after the jump so you can see how the process works.
By the way, you will have to wait for the chip to come in the mail before you can use the watch’s wireless features. Still, I think products similar to RumbaTime Go are the future. I wouldn’t be surprised if similar chips like these end up in cellular phones.
You can get RumbaTime Go on the official RumbaTime site, and they come in many colors, styles, and prices. You might want to get a jump on the Rumba generation!
