The change of name from Android Wear to Wear OS this week has brought another welcome addition: Official support for watches.

While Android Pay (Google Pay) was able to be used on watches with NFC such as the Huawei Watch 2, users always had to manually enable the Android Pay app through Google Pay. It seems it was unoficially official if you catch our drift. From now though it appears it’s officially official, with the Wear OS by Google social media accounts announcing the support for Google Pay on your wrist (if it has NFC) is is now available in Canada, Spain and of course Australia.

If you don’t have Google Pay installed, you can now install it and it won’t disable after some uses.
