Biowatch   Biowatch
Biowatch envisions a world with seamless transactions at an uncompromising level of security and privacy by introducing a wearable solution ready for payments, ticketing, access control and ID management. By looking at the user's unique wrist vein pattern Biowatch leverages non-stop authentication to the wearable and thus suppresses the need for any further authentication steps when accessing devices, premises and services. Your watch becomes your ID. Beyond the extra security brought by the device, a single activation by the user is enough to enable non-stop authentication as long as the device stays on the wrist, simplifying users' experience who don't have to prove anymore their identity 50 or 100 times a day before any secured transactions. Co-founded in 2015 by Matthias Vanoni and Joe Rice, the inventor of vein biometric recognition, Biowatch is headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, and has won more than 40 awards.
