Every useful tool has certain restrictions, just like Samsung Pay does. Only 15 countries currently accept Samsung Pay, and many more do not with Galaxy Watch. UAE, Canada, China, Spain, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Brazil, United Kingdom, Malaysia, the US, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, and Australia are among the 15 regions.

About 10 Samsung smartwatches support the Samsung Pay functionality in qualified regions that are as follows: Gear S3, Gear Sport, Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Watch Active 2, Galaxy Watch 3, Watch 4, Watch 4 Classic, Watch 5, and 5 Pro.

As a result, contactless purchases with Samsung Pay on the Galaxy Watch require Near Field Communication (NFC). When you bring your watch close to the point-of-sale (POS) terminal, it activates because it is NFC-enabled.

The transaction is then completed after the watch’s NFC module connects to the payment terminal. So let’s get started with how to use it on the watch even if you live in an area that isn’t supported.
