The TimeTraveller is the first contactless payment watch in Malaysia that incorporates unique Touch ‘n Go features with payment and reload facilities. In other words, you can pay for things with this watch!

Much like ApplePay and FitPay, the watch can be used to pay for public transportations, tolls and over 2,000 merchants in the country

Some of these merchants include Watsons, Baskin Robbins and Old Town White Coffee.

You can insert a Touch 'n Go SIM card into a dedicated SIM card slot on the side of the watch while the payment sensor is placed around the bezel

Debuting in sleek black and white, the watch uses a durable silicone strap and it is water-resistant. On the surface, it is also an analogue watch.

To reload the watch, all you need to do is head to any authorised Touch 'n Go kiosks, pay your desired reload amount and tap it on the reload terminal
