The development of contactless payments has added a level of convenience that we guarantee many appreciate. On the surface, its user experience is so seamless because of Near Field Communication (or NFC), which enables devices to exchange information over a short distance -- a few centimeters. The addition or rather the expansion of using these features on our smartwatches only cements their usefulness. So does Samsung's latest Galaxy Watch 4 have NFC, and can it use it to make payments?

Yes, the base $249 variant of the Galaxy Watch 4 does feature NFC alongside WiFi and Bluetooth; consumers can also purchase an LTE-enabled version which starts at $299.

On Galaxy Watch 4, NFC's primary use scenario is to make use of your watch as a mode of payment. To do this, you can use Google Pay or the pre-installed Samsung Pay application. Though the latter is limited in terms of regions supported, hence installing Google Pay will be worth your while.
