The Samsung Pay Twitter account has just stated that the awesome payment system that works with most card terminals, even if it just has a magnetic strip, will work with ANY Android phone that runs 4.4 or higher. This is great news because the Gear S2 only allows Samsung Pay to work with Galaxy phones.
Keep in mind that Samsung pay uses a technology called MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) which is only on Samsung hardware, so don’t expect it to work with your non-Galaxy phone by itself, only on the Gear S3.
