First National Bank tap-to-pay comes to Garmin, Fitbit watches in South Africa
First National Bank clients who own certain Garmin and Fitbit smartwatches can now use them to “tap to pay” at retail outlets where tap-based payments are supported.
The bank said in a statement on Thursday that customers can now make payments through their Visa-based bank cards at any contactless-enabled point-of-sale device.
“To make payment, a customer simply selects the wallet feature and then taps their wearable on the contactless point of sale, just as they would when paying with their FNB Pay-enabled smartphone or their contactless card,” it said.
As a further security measure, whenever the Fitbit or Garmin device leaves your wrist, you will be required to enter your wearable passcode once placed back on your wrist in order to reactivate the functionality.
