Those who have been wondering how exactly they’ll pay for things using that new Android Wear smartwatch of theirs … can wonder no longer.
That’s because leaked screens that somehow made their way onto the public storefront of Google Play show step-by-step just how the company intends Android Pay to work, for Wear 2.0 users.
Similar to Apple’s own implement –Apple Pay– Google explains that users will first be required to hold their device near a supported pay terminal, before they are met with a ‘tick’ on screen that confirms their transaction was a success.
Steve Dent for Engadget has more:
“At supported retailers with an Android Pay or contactless logo, you simply hold your NFC-equipped Android Wear watch next to the terminal until it’s approved. It’ll then detail the latest transaction in a list, and you can scroll to see your recent history.”
In order to use Android Pay you’ll first need to have an Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch and add a card from any participating bank, which as of writing include: The Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, The Isle of Man Bank, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M&S Bank, MBNA, Nationwide, Natwest, The Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander, TSB and Ulster Bank.
