You Can Now Make Payments Via Samsung Smart Watch


New Delhi: Samsung on Tuesday announced incorporation of its mobile transaction system Samsung Pay on its Gear S3 smart watch.

The move will allow Gear S3 users to directly make payments using Samsung Pay installed on smartphones through the wearable itself without taking out their mobile devices. The service was originally planned to incorporate on Gears S3 in September 2016, however it was delayed due to slow pace talks with credit card firms.

Last month, Samsung in an update to the service added support for the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) within the Samsung Pay service. The support would allow Samsung customers to access multiple bank accounts through a single payment platform.

The mobile payment service now works with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, SBI Cards, Citibank and Standard Chartered Bank in India.
