KBC first Irish bank to bring Garmin Pay to customers


KBC Bank Ireland first Irish bank to bring Garmin Pay to customers, who can already use Apple Pay, Google Pay, FitBit Pay

In the latest in a number of innovations, KBC Bank Ireland has launched Garmin Pay for its customers in Ireland. KBC is the only bank in Ireland to offer digital wallets from four of the world’s leading technology companies; Apple Pay, Google Pay, FitBit Pay and now Garmin Pay. The latest development builds on KBC’s drive to transform banking in response to customer demand for easy, secure, digitally-led solutions.

This newest contactless payment solution from popular sports device company Garmin will see KBC Bank Current Account and Credit Card customers able to pay for goods and services on the move using their Garmin smart watch, with both the Forerunner 645 and Vivoactive 3 models compatible. The Garmin Pay technology works at any point of sale terminal where contactless payment is available. The customer simply selects their KBC card from their digital wallet, taps the watch face against the payment terminal in store and verifies the transaction using a four-digit code.

Garmin Pay is powered by FitBit Pay, one of the digital wallets already available to KBC customers
