UK January 26, 2018 – Garmin Pay™ was launched in December 2017, and the new contactless payment option is one of many features that Garmin offers in its smartwatches. Now, customers in Danske Bank with Mastercard will soon be able to register their cards in Garmin Pay. With Garmin Pay, you can collect your payment cards directly on your smartwatch. Purchases are verified with a four-digit code, and the user can quickly choose between the payment cards on the display. Garmin Pay can be used anywhere contactless payment is accepted. To pay, just tap the clock against the point-of-sale terminal.

Payment with a smartwatch
With Garmin Pay, you can quickly and easily pay for things without your credit card or phone. Garmin Pay is available in vívoactive 3 and Forerunner 645 Music. You can create an electronic wallet in Garmin Connect Mobile and register the cards you want to pay with. When you pay, you verify with a 4-digit code. The watch will then be unlocked for 24 hours, but if you take it off, it will be locked immediately.
