Yeah no problems at all with using it so far, it's one of my favourite things about the watch...100% for me but many people have reported having trouble getting the double click timing down. This is probably your problem too. You have to be fast. Any time delay and you miss it.
I can double click and get the card up perfectly, it's just when i hold it over the reader it doesn't work. :/100% for me but many people have reported having trouble getting the double click timing down. This is probably your problem too. You have to be fast. Any time delay and you miss it.
No problems here. Works great! My perception is that you are not holding your wrist close enough to the reader. Keep trying!
Works 100% of the time on the vending machines at work. Had it fail once at an Apple Store, too.I have used it easily at Fresh Market and at the vending machines at work. The only place I tried to use it and failed was the Apple Store. The lady kept telling me to double click, which I already had and then kept moving her reader around to where it did not register. She then said I was wearing it wrong and upside down. It is not supposed to be on my right wrist... (I am left handed). Apple stores can be frustrating places.
It's embarrassing for the merchant because 90% of the time Apple Pay fails because of their POS system and NOT the Apple watch.
I have used Apple Pay on my watch to pay for groceries about 15 times in the last couple of months and it has worked every time at a variety of checkout stands (but all at the same grocery store). Only weird thing is that sometimes they run it as debit and no signature is required. Other times it runs as credit and a signature is required... even if I use the same debit card for each transaction.
Because CVS intentionally does not accept Apple Pay.Somehow Samsung was able to work while Apple Pay and an actual card did not. I am scratching my head as to why this is the case....
We tried tapping the mag stripe reader first and it did not respond. When we tapped the reader the EMV lights lit up and the read was accepted. I am fairly certain that this was not a read through the mag stripe reader as they are not that close.Because CVS intentionally does not accept Apple Pay.
Who knows about Samsung pay... maybe the tap in the NFC area actually got picked up as a magnetic swipe. Does the Samsung Pay app know whether it got read via magnetic swipe emulation or NFC, and did it tell you that it was NFC?
