Meliá Hotels' wearable bracelet is a piece of smart technology that's serving as a more convenient form of payment for those visiting the popular Spanish resort.
Making sure one has cash in their wallet while traveling is both a hassle and a security risk. Now, those staying at a Meliá property in Magaluf can enjoy the comforts of leaving one's wallet in their hotel room. In addition to offering the convenience of tap-to-pay around the resort, this bracelet enables guests to make purchases at surrounding merchants, like coffee shops, clothing stores and restaurants.
By mid-August, this technology will be available at nine locations across Spain. While wearable technology isn't new to hotels, Meliá's stands out by allowing travelers to use tap-to-pay, room-charging technology outside of the resort grounds.
