I have a chip based debit card ( pretty much all cards in uk in past 2 years ).

I can buy in pubs, coffee shops etc with just a swipe ( most chains ) otherwise pin number.

On London underground you just use card over reader and it works out best ticket ( so if you spend more than 28 pounds in week it buys one weekly pass for last 7 days ).

Not sure how apple or Google add value to this. Rather wave my card around at random strangers and devices than an expensive phone.
