To use Fitbit Pay you’ll need to enter your 4-digit watch PIN code each time you put Ionic on your wrist. If you wear Ionic for 24 hours the device lock will time out and you’ll be prompted to enter your PIN code to authorise a payment.
When you’re ready to pay, press and hold the left button on your watch for 1 second.
Enter your 4-digit watch PIN code (if prompted).
After your card appears on the screen, hold your wrist near the payment terminal. When the payment succeeds, your watch vibrates and you’ll see a confirmation on the screen.
If the payment terminal doesn’t recognise Fitbit Pay, make sure the watch face is near the reader and that the cashier knows you’re using a contactless payment.
