Citadele enables its users to make contactless payments by linking their card account to a bracelet, card, ring, phone, or mobile wallets including Apple Pay. Similarly, Swedbank allows users to make contactless payments using Fitbit Pay and Garmin Pay watches in Lithuania. To further increase contactless adoption, BoL increased the contactless card payment limit without a PIN from 25 ($28.07) to 50 ($56.14) in March 2020. These initiatives are likely to further drive card-based payments over the coming years.
