UK Prepaid Financial Services cards now work with Garmin smart watches

  • Irish FinTech company Prepaid Financial Services (PFS) has just rolled out its first Garmin Pay solution in the UK, allowing UK customers to connect their cards to their smart watches.

    As contactless payment has become the standard across the UK, many customers have started adopting even more convenient options such as paying with their smartphones. Smart watch payment systems have become particularly popular among runners, allowing them to conveniently pay for things on the go without the need to carry physical cards with them.

    Irish e-money payment company PFS has announced that you'll be able to use cards it issues and manages in the UK in this way thanks to a new partnership with Garmin Pay. The contactless payment system will be available on any Garmin-compatible smart-watch, and works similarly to Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay. A full list of watches compatible with the new contactless service can be found at

    Valerie Moran, Head of Operations & Client Relations at PFS, said: "We enjoyed partnering with Garmin to bring a lifestyle FinTech offering to PFS card programme users across the UK. This solution is truly the digital wallet you wear on your wrist with convenience at every turn to ensure great user experiences with each purchase made."
