Samsung Gear 2 -26

The Tizen powered Samsung Gear 2 has been waiting on its PayPal app since the company announced that it was bringing a new version of PayPal to Samsung wearable devices, as well as fingerprint-based payments on the Galaxy S5, back at MWC 2014. Well now, the app has now finally arrived, and appears as version 1.40.

The PayPal app for the Gear 2 allows users to check-in at local stores and pay for purchases, redeem offers, receive payment notifications, as well as view and manage recent transactions. The video below can probably give you a better look at what the service is like on a smartwatch.

Gear 2 owners can grab the PayPal app directly from the Samsung Gear manager.

    Is this app device/region specific? I’m in the USA with Samsung Gear 2 and I can’t see over half the apps that others say are in the Samsung App Store through Gear Manager. That includes Paypal, Gear Navigator, etc.
