Anyone whose commute involves a toll road will attest to the convenience of EZ tags that let your car whip through the toll areas without stopping—or in some places, even slowing down.
Garmin and the Chinese company Watchdata Technologies, in conjunction with EZ-Link, have come to the rescue of the footsore in Singapore by adding am NFC chip to their fitness trackers. The chip works like the car tag: one tap and you’ve paid for your bus or train ride and can get on your way to a seat without breaking stride or pausing the steps your tracker is tracking.
Watchdata’s Batman v Superman Fitness Tracker X EZ-Link is be available only on the My EZ-Link Online Shop for S$42.80. The pricier Garmin product, the Garmin vivosmart HR with EZ-Link at S$259, is due out at the end of March.
