Samsung Pay Beta makes its way to the Gear S2

When Samsung took the wraps off the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic back in October 2015, it promised customers that it would bring a dedicated version of its mobile payment platform to the devices in the not-too-distant future. Unfortunately, chatter surrounding the matter quickly died down following the smartwatches official launch, but now, almost a year later, the South Korean company has launched a beta version of its dedicated Samsung Pay application for the units via the Gear Manager application.

It’s important to note, however, that unlike its smartphone counterpart, Samsung Pay for the Gear S2 or Gear S2 Classic doesn’t support magnetic strip transmission, so you’ll only be able to use the service with NFC readers. Don’t worry, though, as the majority of retail stores in the United States, which is currently the only region where the beta is available, have already made the switch over to NFC terminals also opposed to the antiquated swipe system that has been installed in bricks-and-mortar shops for a little over a decade now.
