    Samsung Pay comes to the Gear S2 and the Gear S3 in the UK

    Pay

    Samsung Pay arrived in the UK last week after a long wait. The South Korean smartphone giant partnered with American Express, HSBC and Nationwide for the rollout of its mobile payment service in the country. Samsung has now extended the mobile payment service to its smartwatches. The update seems to be rolling out slowly in the country.

    Customers in the UK can now use the Gear S2 and the Gear S3 to make transactions through Samsung Pay. The Gear S3 features both MST and NFC, while the Gear S2 comes equipped with NFC. However, MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) doesn't work in the UK, so you'll be able to use both these smartwatches for transacting through Samsung Pay just fine.
