Open Samsung Pay on your Samsung smart watch

A Galaxy Watch Active 2 opening Samsung Pay

No one likes holding up the line at the cashier. No worries, you'll never be that person again with Samsung Pay on your watch. Just hold down the Back button to automatically open Samsung Pay, so you can make purchases quickly and easily.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and model.

To use Samsung Pay on your smart watch with a non-Samsung phone, you must update to Android 6.0 or higher.

Open Samsung Pay

Note: For some watches, you may need to open Samsung Pay through the Galaxy Wearable app before it will appear on the watch. This will install the plugin on the watch.

Got an overcrowded wallet? Just set up and open Samsung Pay on your watch to help lighten the load.

From any screen, press and hold the Back (top) button for 1–2 seconds. If this is your first time opening Samsung Pay, it may take a few seconds for it to start. When Samsung Pay opens, swipe to the left to view the basic instructions. Then, tap the arrow to begin setting up Samsung Pay. Tap OK to open Samsung Pay on your phone, and then tap Start. If prompted, sign into your Samsung account.

On your watch, tap the three dots, and then tap + Add card to add a card to Samsung Pay. Tap TURN ON to set up a lock screen for your watch if you haven't already done so. On your watch, enter a four-digit PIN, and then enter it a second time to confirm. From here, you can start adding payment cards or importing payment cards through your phone.

Now, whenever you want to quickly access Samsung Pay, just hold down the Back key on your watch. Your card(s) will appear and you can make a payment.
