In mid-2010, it seemed that every technology company launched its own payment solution. Everyone, from Apple and Google to Samsung, Chase and CVS, had payment apps in which you could load your credit or debit card information and use your phone to purchase items from terminals that support NFC (Near-Field Communication).
Fitbit launched its version, Fitbit Pay, already in 2017. Currently Fitbit offers the possibility to pay with your smartwatch and tracker on four of its devices: the Ionic, Versa 2 / Special Edition and Charge 3 Special Edition. In 2019, it also started working with selected cities to have your Fitbit Pay used for public transportation, including in Chicago, New York City and Singapore.
If you want to take advantage of mobile payments with your Fitbit, you can do the following: get started.
This is the most crucial first step for obvious reasons. Fitbit Pay currently supports hundreds of large banks around the world, but you will want to confirm whether your bank qualifies, especially if you are part of a credit union. Fitbit says it regularly adds new bank partnerships and often returns. But for now here are the countries where Fitbit Pay is supported. Take a look below and then go to the Fitbit support page to see if your bank is included.

Mexico  The Netherlands
Republic of Cyprus
United Arab Emirates
This should take you to the installation page where you must set a four-digit security PIN to confirm payment transactions. You can choose to ask your Fitbit for a pin code only when you make a payment or every 24 hours / every time you remove your Fitbit. The latter is better if you remove your Fitbit often or simply prefer increased security. Think of it as re-entering your access code or lock pattern every time you open your phone.

Most people will want the first option: follow the steps by entering your card information and address. Tap "Next" and agree to the terms of service of Fitbit Pay so that Fitbit can confirm the validity of the card.
You can add multiple cards if you want (up to six on the Versa / Ionic and five on Charge 3) – but if you do, go you return to the Wallet section of your Fitbit app to select the primary card that you want to use. Depending on your PIN setting, you may have to enter it again to open the Wallet setting in the app. For phones with a fingerprint sensor, Fitbit also supports biometric logins.
You can use Fitbit Pay with any credit card terminal that accepts NFC payment solutions. (They are usually indicated by this logo or the mobile payment logos from other brands, such as those from Apple or Google.)
To pay, swipe down on the screen of your Versa or Ionic around the Wallet icon or hold down the left button for two seconds to bring it onto the Charge 3 SE. Select the card that you want to use (again, the primary card that you have chosen is displayed by default) and move your Fitbit over the payment terminal. (You do not have to tap your Fitbit on the terminal; NFC works as long as the devices are about two centimeters apart.)
As soon as you receive confirmation from the terminal, your payment is processed.

Tap the card you want to view to see recent transactions
Scroll down to suspend the card while you travel or if you temporarily lose access to your card or the Fitbit device
