If you have come across a fabric, Tyvek or silicone wristband with a smart tag made of an RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) chip and antenna, it is called an RFID wristband. RFID is a method of transmitting the unique identity of a wristband using radio waves. The technology allows an embedded reader or scanner to capture data on an RFID tag and send it to a backend computer system without physical contact. More often than not, the smart tag looks like a visible plastic card or a silicone-embedded chip.

Interestingly, this bracelet-like device can store information, such as identification credentials, purchasing credits, coupons, access control into hotels or VIP areas, social media information, etc. Out there, the most common type can store up to 3.72 kilobytes of information. With that memory, the wearable wrist device can have the wearer’s name, address, credit card authorization, and identification information. By and large, they come in different shapes and colours.

Why You Need RFID Wristbands
