Fitbit Pay is now available in Germany

To Google Pay and Garmin Pay is now Fitbit Pay: Since this week you can pay with your Fitbit Ionic or Fitbit Versa contactless in Germany. This option does not yet exist in Austria.

Requirements for using Fitbit Pay in Germany

To be able to use Fitbit Pay in Germany, you must have a Fitbit Ionic or a Fitbit Versa. In addition, you have to have an account at BW Bank with the company's VISA card, which you can assign to the watch using the Fitbit app on the smartphone. Because only BW-Bank is currently supported, the Fitbit service is not as accessible as that of Google, for example, as more banks have been cooperated with.

However, with Fitbit Pay in Germany, Fitbit is creating another option for making contactless payments with its wearable. Still, the service is unlikely to catch on anytime soon, as Google - as indicated above - is working with more banks. Garmin Pay is only useful for very few people because only very few models from the company are supported here.

Protection of your own data

Fitbit Pay uses the VISA token system to protect its own data and account. This means that the token can be deactivated at any time. This is especially useful if the watch is lost or stolen. In addition, a PIN that is given when setting up Pay protects all transactions.
