Hong Kong-based Tappy Technologies is showing off its wearable payment solutions at this week’s Money20/20 show in China.

The company’s payment solutions are designed for integration into a range of wearable devices including watches, bracelets, and jewellery. It’s also delving into wearable-based biometric authentication, having announced a collaborative partnership with fingerprint recognition specialist Zwipe at the end of October.

At Money20/20 China, Tappy is highlighting its partnerships with financial services firms such as Barclays, ICICI Bank, India’s Axis Bank, and Expresspay Card, a card issuer co-created by Bank of China and China UnionPay. It’s also emphasizing its cooperation with watch brands such as Timex, Guess, and Mondaine, with Tappy Technologies CEO Wayne Leung explaining in a statement, “Highly sophisticated algorithms ensure that our unique biometric sensors operate flawlessly without batteries, and that the watch’s design is aesthetically pleasing, which is important to our watch partners.”

Money20/20 China kicked off today in Hangzhou, and is scheduled to run until November 16th.
