At long long last Samsung Pay arrives on the Gear S3 in the UK. I popped into the Gear app on the phone this morning and noticed the Samsung Pay option, tapped on it and followed the wizards to install the app on the Gear S3 and activate my card.

I don't think so Jim. If it appears within the Gear app then you can as that is where it first appears for the Gear watches, it's not a separate store app.

Interesting, I've got the Samsung Pay app on the Gear S3 and it shows within the gear app, but I can't configure it as I don't have a companion app on the phone. Yes, y need to sign into Samsung pay on your mobile device.

You configure it within the Gear S app on the phone Jim.

Hmmm, it doesn't allow me to configure anything in the Gear S app, so I'll assume it is because it isn't a Samsung phone!

Does Samsung Pay not appear in the App? If not then you may be right....

No, no separate settings that I can see. Just the app running on the watch.

I think so. Although a bit of googling reveals Samsung Pay running on other phones such as the Google Pixel. I found the app in the store, but not compatible with any of my devices.

 

I was going to try and get the .apk! :-)
