Issue being discussed:
When cards are used, people will tend to take sometime to find their cards from their bags. But if wrist band is used, this could reduce such problem. Furthermore, it will not be lost easily compared to cards.
Point of view:
Since the writer did not give his point of view, I shall provide my point of view. I think that this "wristband digital Cepas Card" would be much more convenient for the commuters. Since it is on our wrist, it would not be lost easily as cards could not be on our hands 24 hours a day but a wristband could. Furthermore, the way to scan it is much easier than cards. We have to dig into our bags to find the card and this waste more time and also hinders other commuters especially during peak hours. I think I would definitely would like to have one. But I would suggest this wristband tone more colorful or visually appealing so that it could also act as an accessory. From the article, Hong Konghave been using this successfully for quite some time so I believe Singapore might also have one eventually.
