Wirecard integrates contactless payments for Garmin smartwatch owners

Wednesday 16 May 2018 | 10:05 AM CET

Wirecard has partnered with Garmin to integrate digital contactless payments, allowing customers to initiate mobile payments via boon at the PoS.

boon by Wirecard is a mobile payment solution that works independently of banks and network operators. In September 2017, Garmin entered the payments market with the vívoactive 3 smartwatch. As of May 2018, users in France, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK, will be able to add their digital boon cards to Garmin Pay and make purchases with their Garmin vívoactive 3 or Garmin Forerunner 645 smartwatches anywhere Mastercard Contactless is accepted.

boon by Wirecard can be set-up on Garmin vívoactive 3 and Garmin Forerunner 645 by following the steps in the Garmin Connect mobile app to add a card to the user’s Garmin Wallet. To pay, users call up the Controls Menu and access the wallet. The boon card will then show up on the screen, the smartwatch being ready to pay. Users need to hold the watch against the payment terminal until a payment confirmation appears on the device screen.
