McLEAR is the leading wearable technology company for payments, security, and fashion globally and the inventor of the Smart Ring. The company was founded in 2012 in the UK and released NFC Ring® to the world in mid-2013 – kick-starting the entire smart ring space.
Our innovation made it possible for a ring to provide access control, personal interaction and now, make contactless payments with the touch of a hand. It is a passive NFC tag in an innovative form factor with a very small antenna and inlay. We use several different NFC ICs depending on application and design. Our product then works with NFC compatible readers and terminals.
It was the world's first contactless payment ring, fully patented and EVM certified.
Our technology combined with our strong partnerships continues to push boundaries and create more opportunities throughout the fintech world.
We enable our partners to enter the wearable space and deploy an innovative, robust, fashionable payment, access, or open platform solution to its customer base. Our ring can be used as a companion or stand-alone device to make every day activities just that little bit easier.
There’s no need to carry money when out for a jog in the morning, no need to reach for your wallet or phone when dashing through the underground. Just raise your hand, tap your ring and away you go.
