Google Wallet Coming to More Fitbits and 12 More Countries

Google rebranded its Google Pay contactless payments app into Google Wallet, now encompassing several things, including loyalty passes, digital keys and, of course, credit and debit cards. Now, Wallet is becoming available in 12 more countries.

The Wallet rebrand is landing in a handful of new countries, bringing the total up to 57 countries. The service is now arriving for users in Argentina, Cyprus, Georgia, Kyrgyztan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Malaysia, Mexico, Slovenia, Thailand, and Vietnam. Some of these counties were using the previous version of Google Pay, while others are adding support for Google’s contactless payments app for the very first time.

Not only can you use Wallet in more countries, but also, you can now install it on more devices. Google has made its payments app available on a handful of Fitbit devices — more specifically, the Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4. This means that you can now add your cards and pay in stores with a tap of your wrist, just like you currently can on watches like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. With Fitbit being Google-owned, it’s good to see the company give some love to its non-Wear OS devices.

If you have a Fitbit Sense 2 or a Fitbit Versa 4 and you happen to live in one of the 57 countries Wallet is supported in, including the 12 new ones, you’ll soon be able to get paying.
