Nordea unveils new payment solution for Fitbit, Garmin wearables

The solution can be accessed by Nordea Mastercard or Visa cardholders in Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

To address customer’s security concerns, the solution keep their card details private.

Nordea head of cards Lars Bostrom said: “We are delighted to join forces with best-in-class brands such as Mastercard and Visa in cards and Garmin and Fitbit in wearable tech to offer the easiest and fastest payment experiences to our customers through Nordea Wallet.

“Wearables such as Fitbit and Garmin are simple ways to make card purchases on the go, directly from your wrist. Now customers can head to the gym, go for a jog or just take a walk – without a phone or wallet – and still shop on the way home.”

The new solution is part of Nordea Wallet, which has been upgraded with features such as a new overview page and card enrolment for wearable payment services. The wallet will eventually incorporate other new features including receipt storage.
