Motorola introduces wearable NFC clip for PIN-free smartphone unlocking

Motorola’s recently-announced Moto X smartphone has an innovative new NFC-powered accessory.

The Motorola Skip is a small clip that provides the security of a PIN without the user needing to remember a code. It can automatically unlock the phone when the two devices are touched together.

Customers who buy Motorola Skip will also be supplied with three adhesive Skip dots that unlock the phone. These could be used to automatically unlock the phone when it’s placed in a ‘trusted area’ such as a car dashboard or desk.

Each Skip needs to be paired with the phone before it can be used. The phone can still be unlocked with a PIN code.

Pricing is expected to start from $19.99 (£13), although Motorola Skip will be provided free for a limited period when customers order a Moto X via the online Moto Maker service.
