If you need tap-to-pay and plan to use Surface Duo, picking up a modern wearable is all you need.
Microsoft's Surface Duo shortcomings have been known for almost a year now. No Qi wireless charging, no IP68 rating, and no NFC understandably are deal killers for some. But at least for NFC tap-to-pay there is a simple solution and you may already have one: a smartwatch.
In what may seem obvious, anyone grabbing a Surface Duo and who has a modern wearable gets NFC tap-to-pay as part of the feature set. A simple flick of the wrist makes buying transit fare, homeware at Target, or fast food effortless.

ther are many times I would have to remove my watch if I wanted to do a contactless payment because of the position of the terminal. Not really that great of a solution.
