Motorola Skip for Moto X official
Motorola has made the Motorola Skip accessory for Moto X official today. Skip is a NFC-based thumb-sized clip that pairs with your Moto X and unlocks it with a simple tap, without the need to enter PIN or pattern. It can be worn on your shirt sleeve, shirt hem, or belt loop.
The company also bundles three Skip dots with every Skip, which are NFC stickers that, like Skip, provide authentication and unlock your Moto X.
According to Motorola, only Skip and Skip dots that have been paired with your phone will unlock it, and you can easily unpair them if you lose or replace your Skip. If you don’t have your Skip or Skip dot handy, you can still unlock your phone with your PIN.
