    What stupid article and largely a waste of time if you’re ot going to clarofy paymwent options.

    “Samsung” …pay is irrelevant. CAN YOU PUT ANDROID PAY ON A GEAR S3 in the UK and then walk into a shop and pay with the watch at a contactless terminal, or not????????

  2. Excuse me! Why is the article stupid?
    If you paid attention and read the article I am talking about Samsung Pay not Android Pay.

    Since the watch uses Tizen OS, a Samsung operating system, its primary payment system is Samsung Pay, not Android Pay, and my main gripe is that it’s not supported in the UK.

    Android Pay app is part of Android, which will also be available on Android Wear 2.0. There is a big difference between Samsung Tizen OS and Android OS.

    Simple answer to your DUMB question is NO YOU CAN’T!

    You need an Android smart watch that supports Android wear 2.0 and NFC support. There are only a few watches currently available with Android Wear2.0, but Android are planning to roll out the new version 2.0 software to more smart watch manufacturers.

    Not studpid at all, this article actually clarified many points I couldn’t find in Samsung’s own marketing literature. Thanks very much. I was going to buy one of these watches but after this I’m considering leaving Samsung’s ecosphere altogether later this year and seeing what watches appear as the year goes on.

    Thanks for your time in researching this, it’s much appreciated.
