In the mid-2010s, it seemed like every tech company launched a proprietary payment solution. Everyone from Apple and Google to Samsung, Chase, and CVS had payment apps in which you could load your credit or debit card information and use your phone to buy items from terminals that support near-field communication (NFC).
Fitbit launched its version, Fitbit Pay, back in 2017. Currently, Fitbit offers the ability to pay from your smartwatch and tracker on four of its devices: the Ionic, Versa 2 / Special Edition, and Charge 3 Special Edition. In 2019, it also began partnering with select cities to let you use Fitbit Pay for public transit, including in Chicago, New York City, and Singapore.
