Fibank (First Investment Bank), Mastercard and Garmin announced the launch of the Garmin Pay watch payment project in Bulgaria.

Garmin Pay will allow Fibank customers to digitize their Mastercard payment cards using not only smartphones, but also Garmin watches. The new service will enable users to pay at all contactless POS terminals, as well as perform contactless ATM transactions. The service is aimed at people with an active lifestyle, athletes, as well as at all those who want to have their money available anywhere and anytime without having to carry a bag, wallet, card, or even a smartphone.

Using Garmin Pay is fast, easy and secure, with customer data security guaranteed by the latest Mastercard Digital Enablement Service (MDES) technology. To use the service, a Garmin smartwatch is required supporting the Garmin Pay functionality, as well as a Mastercard debit or credit card issued by First Investment Bank. Card registration is done through the Garmin Connect Mobile (GCM) mobile application. Using the virtual wallet is done by just tapping the watch to a payment device (contactless POS or ATM).
