For US cardholders this isn't really an option as far as I can tell.

However I can say that my "chip and sign" cards work fine all over, including in some kiosks. NFC payment (Garmin watch or iphone - and probably apple watch but I haven't tried this personally) worked for me throughout Slovakia, Austria, and Switzerland this Summer - drink/food vending machines, ticket machines, in-store, restaurant, hotels, even at an appliance store. The only places it did not work were places that took cash only.

That said for SBB the app does everything.
