Ahlibank has announced the launch of Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay as part of the bank’s commitment to providing more secure and easy payment solutions for its customers.
Ahlibank customers can now enjoy, fast, and secure payments on the go with their Ahlibank Visa debit and credit cards linked to Fitbit and Garmin devices as contactless payment options are gaining momentum across Qatar and around the world.
Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay enable Ahlibank customers to make seamless, secure, and contactless payments for in-store purchases worldwide with their Fitbit Ionic and Versa smartwatches or their compatible Garmin smartwatches.
With the Fitbit and Garmin devices, the bank's customers do not need to present their cards or share the cards' numbers with the merchant, and their actual card numbers are not stored on the devices. The customers instead use a unique generated token number for every transaction.
Customers can easily add their Ahlibank Visa card to Garmin Pay and Fitbit Pay and make payments with their watch and keep their transactions private on the go without a wallet or smartphone. The Fitbit and Garmin devices also give the customers opportunity to temporarily block or delete a card at any time or change the card they want to make purchases with at the checkout points. The devices are compatible with Apple and Android smartphones or tablets.
Mohamed al-Namla, deputy CEO Business Support, Services & Human Resources at Ahlibank, said: “We are proud to add Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay to the series of payment options provided by the bank. These services will enhance customers’ experience by providing them with the option to pay on the go in a seamless, safe, and convenient way.
“This comes as part of the bank’s effort to continually expand its products and services to meet the modern lifestyle needs of its customers and commitment to finding innovative solutions. This payment method works with all Ahlibank credit and debit cards from Visa. Setting up the service is very easy and works on both iPhone and Android devices.
