Curve forms partnerships to expand wearables offering

British fintech start-up Curve has partnered with Garmin, Fitbit and Sony’s Wena pay to enable its customers to make payments using wearables.

Curve enables users to combine all their multiple payments cards as well as accounts into the smart card. The collaboration will enable Curve’s users to pay with any of their cards using wearable devices.

After loading their payment cards to the Curve app, customers will have to choose the account that they prefer to pay using their smartwatch or smartphone.

Additionally, users can avail a number of benefits including making all users’ cards free when visiting other country.

Additionally, they will receive all payment notifications and categories of spends while earning instant 1% cashback at Uber, Amazon, Sainsbury’s, and Netflix.

Curve head of product OS Diego Rivas said: “Wearables are fast becoming one of the most convenient ways to pay for things on the go.

“Bringing Curve’s unique all-your’s-cards-in-one benefit to three of the biggest players in the wearables space, and enabling their customers to be able to pay with any bank using the Curve platform truly cements Curve as the ultimate way to manage all your finances in one place.”

Curve for the first time in November enabled its users to pay using Samsung Pay and Google Pay through their smartphone. The service has now been extended to include smartwatches.

Last month, Curve integrated Google Pay into its platform, allowing customers in the country to link all their bank cards to the mobile wallet.
