Samsung has announced that it's extended its mobile payment platform — Samsung Pay — to the Gear S3 in the United Kingdom. This news comes less than two months after the service launched in the region for compatible smartphones.

While the list of credit and debit cards that can be used with Samsung Pay is still pretty thin, Samsung says that it will add support for more payment providers, including American Express, in the not-too-distant future.

All you need is…

Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to own a Galaxy-branded smartphone to take advantage of the functionality. All you need is a Gear S3 and a handset running Android 4.4 or later with the Samsung Pay application installed.
