My mum used to have one, I think it was £29.99 at one point which with hindsight was a bargain for the tech involved… shame it needed an external PSU which meant that it was sod all use in a powercut/emergency.
To me it just seems to be a bit of a waste of time that could be better spent, however that may be.
Given the apparent small number of users of fitbit pay, I’d be surprised if they weren’t incentivised by fitbit somehow because surely its not in the best interests of their users to support a minority platform (bit like writing an app for windows phone).
Seems a total waste of time. Every time a suggestion is put forward, it’s usually answered with ‘our developers are busy working in the app’. Well that’s turned out to be bulls*^t, working on bloody Fitbit Pay more like!
It can be used on 1 Fitbit watch at present. So what is the percentage of Starling customers with this 1 type of watch? 0.0005%? Handy if you want a coffee whilst running a marathon I suppose. If not I imagine Apple/Android/Samsung Pay would be your first port of call if you had your phone. Why install another app?
A couple of things there. The company launched on Apple pay, Android pay and fitbit pay where as Monzo have only managed to launch ‘so far’ on android pay. Monzo are trying very hard to reach a wider audience and I don’t think launching on fitbit pay would help right now. Monzo are very good at hearing feedback and acting on it. If you only suggest they may will try and get on fitbit pay.
