MELBOURNE, Fla., Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD) ("NXT-ID" or the "Company"), a security technology company, is pleased to report its financial and operating results for the six months and quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID said, "Our second quarter results for 2017 show continued growth following the significant progress we reported in Q1 2017. Revenue for the first six months of 2017 was more than $14 million compared to just over $80,000 for the same period last year, so we're making real progress in terms of revenue.

LogicMark continues to perform strongly. It posted its second straight quarter of record revenue. Our deliveries of the flye card to WorldVentures also continued at a strong pace as WorldVentures has increased its distribution activities.

Our new addition, Fit Pay, is also already adding momentum. We announced Fit Pay is providing payment capabilities to Token, a new connected ring developed by Tokenize, Inc. Fit Pay also announced business milestones with both Visa and Mastercard in the last two months.

After a successful first half of 2017, we are looking forward to the rest of the year with continued growth from our existing business and new capabilities from FitPay coming to market."
