Setting up the PIN:-

Then tap on the avatar located on the top left corner of the screen. Choose from the list of devices on which the user wishes to enable the Fitbit Pay and then select the “Wallet”.




The next page will offer the user to set up their private 4 digits security PIN code for confirming their future transactions via Fitbit Pay.

Adding the Debit or Credit Card:-

After the user sets up their PIN code, they have the option of entering their credit or debit card number or also the option of placing the iPASS if they are living in Taiwan. Most people choose the first option.

Follow the steps which are straight forward for entering the credit or debit card information and then tap on “Next” and then on Agree to the terms & services of Fitbit Pay.

This will allow for Fitbit to confirm the validity date of the user’s card.

Users can go ahead and enter multiple card numbers; 6 on the Versa and Ionic devices and 5 on Charge 3.

Making The Payments:-

After this users will be able to make their payments with their credit card number on the Fitbit Pay on the places with credit card terminals that support the NFC payment solutions.

For paying, user either needs to swipe down on their Ionic or Versa screen for finding the Wallet icon or they can hold the left button for about 2 seconds to bring it on the Charge 3 SE. after this, user needs to select the card from which they want to make the payment through and hover their Fitbit smartwatch over the respective payment terminal.

After the user receives the confirmation from the said payment terminal, their payment would have been processed.

Managing the Cards:-

If a user wishes to review their transaction, or wishes to update or even remove their card from the account on Fitbit Pay, they need to go back to the section “Wallet” in their Fitbit app and follow these steps.

  • Tap on the card, they wish for viewing the transactions they made from it recently.

  • Scroll down for suspending the card if a user is either traveling or has lost access temporarily to their credit card or their Fitbit device.
  • They can also remove their card entirely in this section.
