Last year Fitbit acquired Coin and this meant that they were no longer manufacturing, promoting, or selling any new devices or products. However, their services were still up and running but this will end on February 28th.
Coin, a popular mobile payment startup which proposed a product that lets you use all your credit cards with just 1 card, has been bought by Fitbit. Fitbit has expressed interest in bringing a mobile payments element to their line of fitness wearables before.
The company has confirmed that...
Coin is going to be making compatible hardware for fitness devices from Atlas Wearables, Moov, and Omate(for starters) that will let you process mobile payments(handled by MasterCard) with your fitness band.
