Fitbit, the leading global wearables brand, has announced that it has added the availability of Fitbit Pay in South Africa for existing FNB/RMB Private Bank cardholders, who have a Fitbit Versa or Fitbit Ionic smartwatch. Customers will now be able to make secure payments on the go, directly from their wrist wherever contactless payments are accepted — adding convenience and freedom to leave their smartphone and wallet at home.
Fitbit Pay is now supported by more than 100 financial institutions in 17 countries. Multiple layers of security assure a seamless experience for Fitbit users. Fitbit Pay uses an industry-standard tokenisation platform to ensure your card information is never revealed or shared with merchants or with Fitbit. Customers are also required to use a personal 4-digit PIN code for an extra layer of protection.
Fitbit Versa (www.fitbitads.com/versa/za), Fitbit Ionic (www.fitbitads.com/ionic/za) and Fitbit Ionic: adidas edition smartwatches are available for purchase at local retailers in South Africa, at a starting price of 3.199 ZAR for Fitbit Versa, 4.999 ZAR for Fitbit Ionic and 5.499 ZAR for Fitbit Ionic: adidas edition smartwatch.
