Google Pay & smartwatches

You can now use your smartwatch to pay with Google Pay! Wear OS by Google enables you to use your smartwatch to pay with Google Pay at store checkouts.

First you have to make sure your watch is compatible with Google Pay. To do this, check that your smartwatch comes with the pre-installed Google Pay app (you can contact the maker of your watch to find out if Google Pay is supported). Your watch must also be running the Wear OS by Google operating system (version 2.15 or higher).

The Google Pay payment feature on smartwatches works with iOS and Android phones. Check that you have the Wear OS app installed on your phone, as it syncs your card details between your phone and watch.

Using Google Pay to pay with your smartwatch is safe. The payment feature requires you to unlock your watch before making any purchases, if the watch has been off  from you wrist. If you’re not wearing the watch, it can’t be used to make payments. The payment feature is only activated when the watch is on your wrist and you have unlocked it with the PIN code.
