One Running Movement & McLEAR partnership continues to evolve

One Running Movement’s partnership with Smart Ring pioneers McLEAR, which was officially announced in January this year, has been evolving over the last few months with both parties working together to drive the movement forwards and to increase regular physical activity for current and future generations to #MoveForLife

McLEAR is the pioneer of wearable payment technology for consumers and businesses, and every McLEAR Smart Ring purchased via this dedicated page contributes to generating free ballot places for movers through One Running Movement, for everyone from the age of 4 upwards.

McLEAR has also been confirmed as a partner on Run for Climate Change, which is the latest programme launched by One Running Movement. Run For Climate Change is a new annual event, with the first edition taking place virtually this year where runners don’t just get rewarded with a sustainably sourced medal but also get a tree planted in their name (or dedicated to a loved one) by Planet-U Energy at a Yorkshire location. Runners of all ages can sign up to run a chosen distance of 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon, with benefits for the planet, communities, charities and their own wellbeing.

In addition to the generation of free places through the purchase of a McLEAR Smart Ring via the dedicated page, McLEAR have also chosen a One Running Movement charity partner collaboration as one of the benefiting organisations for their new RingPay Giving feature.

The RingPay Giving feature, launched in partnership with Parsnip (getparsnip.com), allows Ring holders to automatically send a micro-sized donation to their chosen charity when they make a purchase using their Smart Ring. Ring holders control how much they give using monthly donation caps. Any donations made to One Running Movements’s preferred charity, DigiLearning Foundation will contribute to free technology education courses for children, young adults and adults.

Joe Williams and Rebecca Richardson, Founders of One Running Movement, said: “We enjoy working with McLEAR, who are pioneers in their industry like us and we love the new RingPay features. Evolution, education and technology are hugely important to us at One Running Movement, and we would like to thank McLEAR for their continued support”.

“Carrying payment on your fingers and removing the need for cash, payment cards or getting your phone out is more relevant than ever before – if you can contribute to getting children aged 4 to 16 active through purchasing or using your Smart Ring then that’s another bonus!“

Daniel Blondell, Chief Operating Officer said: “We are proud to be working with One Running Movement and helping all ages to #MoveForLife more”.

“The mission with RingPay is to improve the payment experience; making it faster, effortless and more rewarding. Whether commuting to work, picking up some essentials or off on your travels, RingPay by McLEAR gives you peace of mind knowing your finances are safely in-hand. Just kick back and fist pump your way to better spending and awesome rewards.” 

McLEAR invented the Smart Ring in 2012, which is designed and manufactured to be water and shock resistant and requires no battery; making it the ideal wearable payment device that fits seamlessly into any lifestyle. Ring holders can set rules and manage their Ring through a dedicated app, which also gives them access to numerous exclusive features and benefits. 

One Running Movement (ORM) was established to help to create more active communities and support the creation of healthy habits, utilising the power of sport to improve physical and health and mental health. Current programmes include Run For Climate Change, One Running Movement Half Marathon, One Running Movement Marathon, Schools Half Marathon, Schools Marathon and Energy For Movement.

McLEAR is one of the Foundation Partners and Powered by Partners working together with founders Rebecca Richardson and Joe Williams. Foundation Partners include Polar, Up & Running, New Balance, One Water, Planet-U Energy and National Pride, UKRunChat, Women’s Running, Run Mummy Run, Social Run Group, Breathe Unity and Social Chain.

MCLEAR LAUNCHES RINGPAY WITH NEW FEATURES, REWARDS AND EXCLUSIVE
MEMBERSHIP CLUB BENEFITS

On a continued mission to make life more convenient, McLEAR have been quietly enhancing the world’s most frictionless way to pay.

Smart Ring pioneers McLEAR launches RingPay to market. The payment wearable is packed with new features and exclusive benefits including:

> RingPay Rewards
> RingPay+
> RingPay Giving

RingPay by McLEAR makes payments fast, secure, and invisible. Users can make contactless payments of up to £45, and top up their ring by simply adding their preferred credit or debit card onto the RingPay app. The app allows users to track their spending in real-time, control their budgets, set automatic top-ups, respect physical distancing guidelines, and in case of loss, instantly freeze their Ring.

Making payments rewarding, McLEAR’s partnership with Parsnip also allows users to earn in-store cashback at the growing number of selected retailers in the RingPay Rewards Programme, such as Nike, Foot Locker, Gap and River Island. A wearable so smart it pays for itself.

Ringholders can save significant amounts on every day purchases by subscribing to RingPay+, premium members’ club to gain access to  fantastic discounts and cashback, generated through hundreds of merchants across numerous categories including entertainment ticket bookings, cinema trips, restaurant offers, hotel discounts and holiday travel deals.

In addition, the RingPay Giving feature, lets Ringholders choose to automatically send a micro-sized donation to their chosen charity when they make a purchase using their Ring. Ringholders control how much they give using monthly donation caps, and charities benefit from free Gift Aid reports allowing them to claim an extra 25% on all donations given. This social impact service is turning every contactless payment reader into a charity collection bucket!

The discreet and premium RingPay design is scratch-resistant, stress-tested, waterproof and requires no battery. Simply use McLEAR patented fist bump technology at any contactless reader for ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ payments. Forget the days of unlocking your phone or emptying your pockets. It’s always there on your finger, ready to go.

Daniel Blondell, Chief Operating Officer said: “The mission with RingPay is to improve the payment experience; making it faster, effortless and more rewarding. Whether commuting to work, picking up some essentials or off on your travels, RingPay by McLEAR gives you peace of mind knowing your finances are safely in-hand.
