Samsung introduced the Samsung Pay beta for the regular Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic in the US three months ago, without offering this option to users of the cellular-enabled variants of its smartwatches. Fortunately, the time has finally arrived for them to gain access to the mobile payments service as well.

A recent software update already added the mobile payment platform to the 3G- and 4G-enabled Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic, but the service was not enabled. Now, those who own these smart wearables in the US only need to hold the Back key for one or two seconds, then simply hit Start using Samsung Pay now.

According to some users, an update for Samsung Pay on the smartphone might be needed, next to accessing the Gear S2 Beta account when performing the steps mentioned above to begin using Samsung Pay. Unfortunately, Samsung Pay for the Gear S2 smartwatch does not support magnetic strip transmission, as it is only compatible with NFC readers.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
