Progress tends to favour convenience, which in turn does not favour progress (see: America). Flying the progress flag for Britain: Watch2Pay.
The first of its kind in the world, W2P innovatively disposes of the need for a billfold by placing the RFID chip used for those increasingly commonplace contact-less payment points into a snappy wrist-ticker, making it a bit like your Oyster card, except for clams. How to take one small step towards the future:
