By Verdict Staff

Stratos has launched the Stratos Bluetooth Connected Card capable of consolidating an unlimited number of plastic bank cards into one.

The new Stratos card will allow members to load credit, debit, loyalty, membership and gift cards, onto Stratos and make payments with one universally accepted card form.

The new card will be compatible with all current US merchant infrastructures and will come with a Security Lock-Down feature to enable cardholders to program their card to automatically shut down after a specific amount of time when it is not in proximity to their smartphones.

The Stratos Card, to be shipped from April 2015, will feature five colours, Slate, White, Blue, Salmon and Green, and will offer membership to cardholders that include the card, the Stratos mobile app and a Stratos reader besides free annual card upgrades and personalized member support.

The Stratos Card and Stratos membership, which are available at the company’s website, will charge customers with a price starting at $95 for one year and a $145 for two years.

Stratos co-founder and CEO Thiago Olson said: "Replacing the dumb plastic we carry every day, Stratos Card is connected hardware designed to improve how we pay with more security, better decisions and ease of use. Stratos is reinventing your wallet and cards just like the iPod and iTunes reinvented your CD collection."
