HI Everyone, I feel that there is one important point that is not really being advertised well in regards to the new ring.
Whilst its quite obvious that the OPN ring cannot make payments, it is not equally obvious that the payments ring cannot open doors etc.
This is one really important factor that should be made more clear. When I got my payments ring (Which I got through bank west but is confirmed as McClear technology) I was quite surprised that it did not work on my door lock, or some other door locks I tested at the hardware store.
Think about your most important use case. for me its the door, so at present despite owning a payments ring I have had to go back to my 2013 ring, (all my 2016 rings tags peeled off)
I'm considering the OPN ring but its very expensive. And I really did think the payments ring would be able to open doors as well as make payments.
