Now, customers from Starling Bank, will be able to register their cards in Garmin Pay. With Garmin Pay, you can collect your payment cards directly on your smartwatch. Purchases are verified with a four-digit code, and the user can quickly choose between the payment cards on the display. Garmin Pay can be used anywhere contactless payment is accepted. To pay, just tap the clock against the point-of-sale terminal.
