Except Apple Watch and Microsoft Band, there aren’t many options for paying for things from your Fitness Band. Obviously, you don’t have to wait any longer as the MasterCard and Coin are teaming up to bring credit card payments to all kinds of wearable devices, including fitness trackers and a wider variety of smartwatches. Coin will take care of hardware and software while Master card will handle the service side if things.
However, the new service depends on the hard ware makers, but it will start off with Atlas Fitness Band, Moov and Omate initially. The big challenge may simply be getting you to embrace the idea. Services like Apple Pay work with considerably more cards, and there’s no guarantee that stores will embrace the concept with open arms.
