You may be prompted to unlock the device first by providing your PIN, passcode, pattern or fingerprint ID.
Pay in Shops Using Your Smartwatch
On your watch, open Google Wallet and hold it over the contactless payment terminal until you hear a tone or feel a vibration from your watch. If asked, choose 'Credit' regardless of your card type.
