After being deployed on smartphones in recent years, the Ile-de-France transport ticket is now available on smartwatches.

Despite Apple’s reluctance, Île-de-France Mobilités ended up having the last word on the deployment of the dematerialized Navigo Pass. The precious Parisian transport sesame, billed at nearly €85 per month, is now accessible on most Android and iOS phones through the dedicated application. If the latter still prohibits the payment of an annual pass, it at least has the merit of preventing the dizzy from losing the card. This Monday, April 15, 2024, Île-de-France Mobilités and Samsung announce a new milestone.

The Navigo Pass is coming to the Galaxy Watch.

For more than five years, the Korean company Samsung has been a pioneer in the issue of dematerialized transport tickets. The company was the first to support the Navigo card on its NFC-enabled Galaxy devices. Now, it’s expanding this integration to its Galaxy Watch smartwatches. After a few weeks of successful testing in November 2023, the Galaxy Watch 4, 5, and 6 models (models marketed in 2021 or later) are making the arrival of the Ile-de-France transport card more widespread. This is a further step in continuing to modernize the network, just a few months before the start of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

“The generalization of this service, in partnership with Samsung, is in line with our dematerialization policy started in 2016: to make the lives of users in the Ile-de-France region simpler, more practical, and more in tune with the times. We will continue to invest and increase our efforts in this direction.” Valérie Pécresse, President of Île-de-France Mobilités and the Île-de-France Region.

Greener and more modern, the dematerialization of Navigo season tickets is also of practical interest. Thanks to smartphone fare top-up, the region hopes to relieve congestion at RATP charging stations, which are saturated at the beginning of each month. In the run-up to the Games, the widespread use of paperless ticketing will also allow tourists to better anticipate their stay in the French capital.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Title

Whether you’re running, swimming, or engaging in one of over 90 other activities, the Watch accurately tracks your progress.

1 million people were affected.

The announcement is all the more important as Samsung represents a significant share of users in the Ile-de-France region. In 2024, according to an IDFM press release, the dematerialization of the Navigo Pass on Samsung mobile devices will exceed one million active users. There is little chance that the arrival of the Galaxy Watch in the equation will really change the situation: Samsung smartwatch owners already own a smartphone from the brand. The operation will simply be more convenient for passengers, who will now be able to validate their ticket simply by holding their watch close to the terminal, even if the latter is switched off.
