Google Wallet is a redesigned payment application for Android smartphones and Wear OS smartwatches. At the time of launch, the Google Wallet app was only focused on tap-to-pay on Wear OS smartwatches, but reportedly, many new features are coming to the wearables.

Yesterday, Google released a new update to the Google Pay app that replaced the application with the Wallet app and made its availability to more Wear OS-based smartwatch users in over 35 countries.

This update doesn’t bring any new features and is still meant for quick payments with credit and debit cards on the smartwatches. However, the update is spoiling the ability to double-click a hardware button to access payments for some smartwatch owners.

If you don’t know, the Fossil Gen 5 which is removed with Gen 6 and TicWatch Pro 3 has the ability to hit a predefined button twice to launch Google Pay and unfortunately, it’s not working after the app has been updated to Wallet.

We hope that the problem will get a fix soon, without updating the whole system. Until it gets fixed, you can set a different button to launch the Wallet if you are fine to remove the existing shortcut. Another alternative is to place the Google Wallet as a watch face complication.

Samsung is planning to improve its virtual touchpad functionality, following valuable user feedback from its community. The company may release a major update for the One Hand Operation + Good Lock module to implement improvements.

A user on the Samsung community suggested including a “lock (fix) button” on the virtual touchpad to stabilize the cursor. This button would address concerns of thumb fatigue and precision aiming during single-handed operation.

This suggestion of a lock button is mainly useful for those who sometimes find the current controls challenging due to the cursor movement when adjusting the pointer speed.

In response, a community moderator has acknowledged the feedback and commitment to reviewing and improving the virtual touchpad by the second half of 2024.
