    Mastercard has announced a partnership with wearable payments platform provider Fit Pay to bring contactless payments to wearables and internet of things devices. The payments giant says the companies will integrate the Fit Pay platform with the MasterCard Digital Enablement Service, and work with Wearatec and other device manufacturers to develop a “variety of secure contactless payments-enabled devices”.
