Not an electronic wallet, a physical one:
Virtually indestructible, the dunhill Biometric Wallet will open only with touch of your fingerprint.
It can be linked via Bluetooth to the owner’s mobile phone sounding an alarm if the two are separated by more than 5 metres! This provides a brilliant warning if either the phone or wallet is stolen or misplaced. The exterior of the wallet is constructed from highly durable carbon fibre that will resist all but the most concerted effort to open it, while the interior features a luxurious leather credit card holder and a strong stainless steel money clip.
Only $825. News article.
I don't think I understand the threat model. If your wallet is stolen, you're going to replace all your ID cards and credit cards and you're not going to get your cash back -- whether it's a normal wallet or this wallet. I suppose this wallet makes it less likely that someone will use your stolen credit cards quickly, before you cancel them. But you're not going to be liable for that delay in any case.
