Discover Cardmembers Can Now Make Payments on the Move with Garmin Pay

Share:

Discover® and Garmin® International, Inc., today
announced that Discover cardmembers can now make payments using Garmin
PayTM, a contactless payment solution for people on the move.
Garmin Pay, which is powered by FitPay®, is available on
Garmin's latest active lifestyle smartwatches, the vívoactive®
3 series, and new GPS running watches, the Forerunner® 645,
Forerunner 645 Music and fēnix® 5 Plus series, as well as the
D2™ Delta aviator watch series. Those who add their Discover card to
Garmin's virtual wallet can make quick and easy purchases using just
their watch.

"Consumers are constantly on the go and our goal is to make it as simple
and seamless as possible for our cardmembers to pay with their Discover
card, including on IoT and wearable devices," said Shaida Lynch, vice
president of e-business at Discover. "Now someone can be out on a jog or
running errands and the ability to pay with Discover from their Garmin
watch is just a quick tap away."

"We are excited to provide our customers and Discover cardmembers with
another way to pay while they are on the go," said Dan Bartel, Garmin
vice president of global consumer sales. "Having the ability to easily
pay for purchases, without the need for a phone or wallet, is a feature
that we are happy to bring to users who live an active lifestyle."

Discover cardmembers can use Garmin Pay at any merchant retail location
that accepts both Discover and contactless Near Field Communication
(NFC) transactions. Once a payment card is added to Garmin's virtual
wallet—which can be done through the Garmin Connect™ Mobile App—users
can tap and pay with just a few quick touches.

"We are very pleased to have partnered with Discover and Garmin to bring
additional payment capabilities to Discover cardholders," said Michael
Orlando, chief operating officer of NXT-ID and president of Fit Pay,
Inc. "Discover cardholders will now be able to experience a truly
frictionless payment experience through Garmin's amazing line-up of
smartwatches."

Discover cardmembers who use Garmin Pay to make purchases will continue
to receive all the convenience and benefits of their Discover card,
including rewards, fraud protection and U.S.-based customer service.
