A new update from Samsung has enabled Gear S3 users to make purchases with Samsung Pay even if their smartwatches are not paired with a phone or device of the company. Now, many are becoming curious how this new introduction from Samsung works.

How to use Gear Manager?

Using the Gear Manager application, a Samsung smartwatch user can find the Samsung Pay tab on the S Health menu. This option will guide users on how they will create their account, place their billing information and card details.

The Gear Manager is already available for users of the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier and Samsung Gear Classic which can already be paired to any device working on Android. However, it is important to note that the application may not work well with the Google Pixel as per user reviews. It is also important to note that the Samsung Pay only works on a non-Samsung device when it is paired with the Samsung Gear.

This is something that non-Samsung handset users will appreciate from the company as they can already access Samsung Pay using any Android phone linked to the Gear S3. The move is also a way for Samsung to promote its products and features.

Speedometer app

Apart from this, a speedometer application has also been made available for the Samsung Gear S3. It will measure how fast a user is going.

Utilizing the GPS of the smartwatch, the application calculates the speed of a Gear user real-time and instantly displays it on the watch. Those who love to work out or monitor their physical activities will find the application really useful.

The speedometer can be downloaded by Samsung Gear S3 users via the Samsung Apps. A lot more functionalities are expected from the Samsung Gear S3 which has received good word from customers all over the globe.
