Keep reading to learn more about exciting updates to new tools that can help you live a healthier, more active and more productive life.

Make payments seamless with Google Wallet

Starting to roll out today, Google Wallet will join Fitbit Pay as a new payment option for Sense 2 and Versa 4 users, giving you even more opportunities to go about your day hands-free. With a flick of your wrist, you can make quick, secure and contactless purchases without needing to take out or bring your wallet.

Access your stored credit or debit cards with Google Wallet on Sense 2 and Versa 4 to pay for purchases where Google Pay or contactless payments are accepted. With Google Pay, your real card information is never shared. You’ll be prompted to unlock your device with a PIN once per day or whenever you turn on your watch, which will prevent others from making purchases if your device is lost or stolen.

Just tap the Google Wallet icon from the Fitbit app to set up your Google Wallet or add a credit or debit card to your Wallet.²

Get turn-by-turn directions with Google Maps

What’s more convenient than getting real-time directions without taking out your phone when you’re running late? Nothing, which is why for the first time we’ve brought Google Maps to your wrist. Your smartwatch’s interactive on-screen view and turn-by-turn directions will easily guide you wherever you’re going.

Whether you’re walking to explore a new city, want to take the fastest route to tonight’s holiday dinner, or need reassurance that you’re heading in the right direction to your yoga class, Google Maps gives you reliable, real-time navigation so you can explore your world with more confidence.

To launch Google Maps (coming soon to your Sense 2 or Versa 4), make sure Bluetooth is turned on and the Fitbit app is open on your phone. Then open Google Maps on your phone, enter your destination and press start, the turn-by-turn directions will automatically start on your smartwatch. At the end of your navigation, you’ll see a summary of your stats including your route time steps, active zone minutes, heart rate, and more.⁵
