Garmin Pay just the ticker for Starling Bank
With Garmin Pay, users can collect payment cards on the smartwatch. Purchases are verified with a four-digit code, and the customer can choose between the cards on the display.
Garmin Pay can be used anywhere contactless payment is accepted. To pay, tap the clock against the POS terminal. There’s no need for a credit card or phone.
Julian Sawyer, chief operating officer at Starling Bank, says: “Partnering with Garmin Pay is a perfect fit for Starling as we continue with our mission to improve our customers’ financial wellbeing, with customers now being able to pair it with their fitness lifestyle.”
The new feature is powered by the FitPay platform and is now available to Mastercard holders from Starling Bank.
It is available in Garmin’s Vívoactive 3 and Forerunner 645 Music.
