Putting “WOW” into Payments

Payment cards have been around since 1966, with innovations along the way. In 2002 contactless cards were launched generating much excitement in the industry and with cardholders. LAKS recognized that although cards were being issued that for real convenience, incorporating the same technology into a watch would take contactless payments to the next level.

Since 1998 LAKS has developed state of the art contactless access watches, the result is the product presented here – Watch2Pay

We think you’ll agree it truly does put the WOW into payments.

Worn, Not Carried

Watches are worn – not carried, so they are always, literally, on hand and as a result easily accessible and rarely lost compared with credit cards and mobile telephones. Watch2Pay means a convenient alternative to cash – a personal accessory with multiple functions available in an unlimited variety of colors and face designs.


LAKS deploys only finest and best materials and movements of highest quality. LAKS engineers are attending the complex constructions and productions unto the perfect watch. High-quality microchips are utilized intelligent and developed to meet particular requirements. The future now.

Life is colourful and varied, peaceful and pulsating, and as diverse as your personality. Express your Zeitgeist – every minute!
