Good news for all those who have owned a Gear S2 Smartwatch very recently as Samsung Pay is already launched in this Smartwatch as a public beta that will not require you to carry a Smartphone anymore. Smartwatch is really a good invention using which all the jobs can be done including communicating with family and friends. And now the support of Samsung Pay in this wearable tech will give it a high turn.
As of now this feature will be supported only in the US and later all other regions will have access to it. Also, only the users who have Bluetooth only and non-3G Gear S2 Smartwatch will be able to enjoy Samsung Pay in their wrist watch.
Gear S2 Smartwatch Will Be Able To Enjoy Samsung Pay
A Samsung Gear app update will be noticeable which will include the Samsung Pay beta. Update your device to get it after which users are required to head towards the Galaxy app store and download and install the Samsung Pay Gear S2 beta app.
However the use of Samsung Pay will be limited to only NFC terminals as this Smartwatch does not include any components for supporting the MST transactions. The big advantage of having Samsung Pay is that you can use it in almost all the near terminals in the US wherein the credit card is being used.
But the 3G models do not support this Samsung Pay as of now and there is no such news on when the support of Samsung Pay will be made available in the 3G models.
Finally, it can be said that with adding this benefit to the Smartwatch reduce the need to stick to Smartphone all the time and you are also not going to face any issue in case your phone is left at home by mistake.
