I can't use my card for out of EU pin transactions without turning it on.
If I make a payment on the internet I always had to use a calculator like device to sign my transaction, this was vulnerable and widely abused by MitM attacks originating on a compromised PC of the user though (which I saw coming a decade ago, but it took the banks a while to wake up). So now I have a calculator which uses a bar code on the screen to allow the device to show the amount payable and the bank account for the transaction I'm signing (for accounts trusted by the bank it will even give me a name instead of a number).
The only viable attack left other than social engineering is card+pin theft and compromising the card reader to make you overpay, which requires significantly more collusion than a skimmer. If they put a LCD on the card which shows you the amount you are paying the latter would be prevented to (they could have done this for cents years ago, banks are so reactive instead of proactive regarding to fraud). Apple pay fixes it too, much as I hate to admit it.
