You are in control - your paypass device never leaves your hand to make a payment

Watch manufacturer LAKS has teamed up with Mastercard to create a product called "watch2pay", a watch with a built in monetary chip. With this watch all you need to do is scan your watch on a "paypass" device to pay for goods in shops.
Other than the Octopus card itself, operator Octopus Cards Limited also sells watches and mobile phone covers that function as anonymous Octopus cards. The types of watches available include wrist watches, pocket watches, and watch key chains. The mobile phone covers were specifically designed for Nokia models 3310 and 3330.
As with the card itself, these products are used by waving them over a card reader.
For me, religion is only part of it. The complete invasion of privacy is almost as important a reason for me to reject these technologies out of hand.

It is too bad so many live in fear that when they are "forced" to bear a chip, or brand or something else that their God will reject them. It makes me very thankful to not have to worry about such things for my family because my God would never reject us but rather be pleased if I forgave someone who would do such a thing. Just like when the Messiah/Christ was cursed by others he blessed them instead.
