Nordea rolls out contactless payments for Fitbit and Garmin wearables

Nordea is to provide customers with contactless payment options across a range of Fitbit and Garmin wearable devices.

The service will be available to all customers with a private Nordea Mastercard or Visa debit or credit card in Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

The move into wearables coincides with an update to Nordea’s mobile wallet to include improved navigation, a new overview page and support for card enrolment for wearable payment services.

The bank says more features, such as a receipt storage functionality, will be launched soon.

Lars Boström, head of cards at Nordea, says: “Wearables such as Fitbit and Garmin are simple ways to make card purchases on the go, directly from your wrist. Now customers can head to the gym, go for a jog or just take a walk – without a phone or wallet – and still shop on the way home.”
