Stratos Card Becomes the First All-in-One Connected Card to Ship

The Stratos Card has officially become the first all-in-one credit card solution to ship. The industry’s first membership-based connected card combines credit, debit, membership, gift, and other magnetic stripe cards into one digital device. The Stratos Card offers bank-level security and contains a proprietary Dual Stripe technology to ensure universal acceptance. Stratos Card membership starts at $95 per year.

The Stratos Card touts enhanced security with users able to lock it out when it travels outside of Bluetooth range of your smartphone. It also includes bank-level encryption as well as your card details being hidden behind a PIN or Touch ID. The Dual Stripe technology mentioned above is what Stratos believes will launch their all-in-one connected card solution above all of the others. The Dual Stripe allows the Stratos to be universally accepted, whether the credit card machine requires a full name or Track 1 data.

The Stratos Mobile App also uses your smartphone’s lock screen for timely information including your top three favorite cards and their last four-digits for verification. Soon, Stratos will also add geo-location and history-based card suggestions, to help you make quick and easy decisions about which card to use.

Future planned Stratos upgrades include NFC contactless payments and fingerprint security.

I'm an architect by trade, but the overarching theme of my life has always been trying to keep up with the newest, coolest technology. Ever since I picked up an NES controller, I've been hooked on the latest and greatest gadgets, gizmos, and toys. Whether it's gaming, mobile phones, and accessories, or PCs and Apple products, I'm interested. I use many Apple products in my daily life, such as the iPhone, iPad, and my MacBook Pro. I've also built a few PCs in my day, so I'd like to say that I'm a pretty well-rounded techie.
