We'll show you how to add a credit or debit card to your Fitbit Pay wallet so that you can experience the convenience of contactless payments.

Now you're free to pay on the go with your eligible Fitbit Pay-enabled smartwatch or tracker. Having contactless payments has been such a liberating feature for me on long hikes and runs, or when I don't want to be touching surfaces. I've been using Fitbit Pay on my trackers since I got my Charge 3 a few years ago, and I use it regularly with my new Versa 3. The feature is also on the Charge 4, and I hope that Fitbit can add it to some of its other best fitness trackers like the Inspire 2.

Financial freedom

As I mentioned, my Fitbit of choice right now is the versatile Versa 3. It's definitely a fitness smartwatch that I feel comfortable recommending to friends and family.
