NXT-ID (NASDAQ: $NXTD) Subsidiary FitPay to Power Garmin Pay (NASDAQ: $GRMN) on Garmin vívoactive 3 Smartwatch


NXT-ID (NASDAQ:  $NXTD) Subsidiary FitPay to Power Garmin Pay (NASDAQ:  $GRMN) on Garmin vívoactive 3 Smartwatch

Company to add NFC-enabled mobile payment capabilities to one of the most complete watches on the market for an active customer




MELBOURNE, Florida, August 31, 2017 Fit Pay, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD) and a provider of payment, credential management, and authentication platform services, today announced that it is powering the payment capabilities for the vívoactive 3, a new smartwatch by leading wearables company, Garmin International Inc. (NASDAQ: GRMN). The new feature, called Garmin PayTM, enables consumers to make contactless payments at near-field communication-enabled (NFC) point-of-sale (POS) locations, adding a powerful new feature to one of the most complete smartwatches on the market for the active consumer.    


“Our team is extremely excited to be working with Garmin to enable Garmin Pay. The inspiration behind FitPay’s drive to enable payments on a whole new generation of devices came while on a bike ride wearing my Garmin,” said Michael Orlando, president of Fit Pay, Inc. and COO of NXT-ID. “The vívoactive 3 with Garmin Pay gives people with active lifestyles an incredibly easy and convenient way to pay without having to carry a phone or wallet – something anyone who runs, bikes or just leads a fast-paced life will love."

The vívoactive 3 was launched by Garmin at the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) Consumer Electronic Unlimited show in Berlin, Germany on August 31, 2017. The complete sports smartwatch offers a range of features, including Garmin Pay, a new contactless payment capability that is powered by the FitPayTM payment platform. The FitPay platform provides the vívoactive 3 with contactless payment capabilities and full digital wallet functionality within the Garmin application, enabling consumers to make contactless payments with the smartwatch at NFC-enabled POS terminals using an existing credit or debit card account. The vívoactive 3 will be available for purchase at Best Buy or on BestBuy.com.

“We are incredibly excited to work with FitPay to offer our customers an easy way to make purchases while on the move,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “With Garmin Pay, you now have the freedom to leave your phone and wallet at home without losing your payment capabilities.”

Garmin Pay and the vívoactive 3 are connected to the FitPay Trusted Payment ManagerTM platform, which is integrated with Mastercard (NYSE: MA) through the Mastercard Digital Enablement Service (MDES) and with Visa (NYSE:V) through the Visa Ready for Tokenization program.1

“We are thrilled to work with FitPay and see the first product launch come out of our Visa Ready for Tokenization program, which was developed to help partners accelerate payment capabilities across the wearable category,” said Jim McCarthy, executive vice president, innovation and strategic partnerships, Visa. “Our network of partners, combined with the right technology solutions, will continue to be fundamental in driving payment functionality in connected devices and allows us to continue to welcome new partners into the payment ecosystem.”

“Mastercard wants to provide its cardholders the choice and peace of mind to make more secure digital payments from a variety of connected devices through a tap, touch, or click,” said Kiki Del Valle, senior vice president, Commerce for Every Device, Mastercard. “Enabling payments on innovative, new devices like the Garmin vívoactive 3 gives consumers more choices in how they pay and provides them the freedom to shop when, where and how they want.”

FitPay’s proprietary technology platform delivers payment, credential management, authentication, and other secure services to the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem. The platform uses NFC technology to interact with over 10 million retail POS terminals worldwide, making it possible to pay for goods and services almost anywhere with a simple tap. FitPay’s end-to-end payment solution allows IoT and wearable device manufacturers to add payment and authentication capabilities to their products with very little start-up time, no investment in software development and access to the leading card networks.
