Although the Apple Watch is extremely pretentious when it comes to apps, Apple Pay turned out to be the best addition for the gadget’s survival. The Watch is a difficult device to manage as a developer, as the small display doesn’t allow for complex visuals. Furthermore, the tech features are still not as advanced as third party app developers have wished for and most of all, consumers are still unaccustomed with the new way of using this innovative technological advancement.
In spite of that, when it comes to the Apple watch, Apple Pay is the perfectly designed app for it. Users love to spend money on buying the watch, just to use it to spend even more money on other things. The Watch is great at making consumers consume. The gadget has an impressive impact on users if we only look at the Apple Pay feature, which is widespread and highly popular.
A recent report shows that Apple watch users show a preference for shopping at retailers which allow them to use Apple Pay. The survey states that no less than 19% of gadget owners tried out Apple Pay for the first time on their Watch and 80% of Watch users overall have used the service. Moreover, the service is used extremely frequent, as 78% of Pay users state that they are using it on a weekly basis.
This is the best news Apple could have got over the last weeks, as they are going through quite difficult times. The tech giant has a lot at stake, with a few devices awaiting for release, while others are being delayed. Moreover, the iPad stagnates in sales and their overall level of sales is not working as expected. Apple Pay has been launched in the US in October, as Apple’s first endeavor to turn contactless mobile payments into a reality for its consumers. Apple Pay can be used via iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and of course, the Apple Watch. Consumers are allowed to pay to supported retailers via NFC technology. It seems that the most used device for the service is the very Apple Watch.
Payment methods are made easy via Apple Watch. You have it all right there, on your wrist. All one needs is to double tap the watch’s side button, select the debit or credit card one wants to use and hold the face of the gadget to the payment terminal. After all that is done, the watch will vibrate and a check mark will appear on the screen to confirm the payment. A password is not needed, unless the watch is taken off your wrist. As long as it is kept on, everything goes naturally, through a simple double tap.
