As promised, Samsung is starting today with Samsung Pay via wearables. The company announced in February that it should be able to do this from March 4th. From today cashless payment is also possible with compatible Galaxy smartwatches from Samsung. Samsung Pay has been officially available for Galaxy smartphones since the end of October. If you already have Samsung Pay active on your smartphone, a banner should appear in the Galaxy Wearable app, as can be seen below in the embedded tweet from our reader Marvin. According to Samsung, users can use Samsung Pay on all models of the Galaxy Watch series (but not on the Galaxy Fit or Samsung Gear models): Galaxy Watch3, Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active2, Galaxy Watch Active. To pay with Samsung Pay after the successful setup with the smartwatch, press and hold the back button on the smartwatch (upper button on the right side of the smartwatch). Now you enter your Samsung Pay PIN to verify yourself, tap on PAY and hold your smartwatch near the card reader to make the payment.
