Google Wallet for Wear OS Now Allows Users to Pay and Store Loyalty Cards on Smartwatches

If you use a Google Pixel Watch, your shopping experience may soon become more convenient. A recent update allows any store loyalty cards stored on your Google account or phone to be accessed in Wear OS Wallet. The loyalty cards will appear after the payment options, and their order can be changed on your phone and reflected on your watch. Previously, the Wallet app on the Pixel Watch only supported credit and debit cards and a few transit cards. Now it supports dozens of loyalty and rewards cards, including those from Walgreens, Kroger, Sam’s Club, Starbucks, Safeway, CVS, Sheetz, Wegmans, and Harris Teeter. To add a loyalty card to your Google Wallet, open the app, click “Add to Wallet,” and select the store. Some cards, such as health insurance and driver’s licenses, can only be used on your phone. The feature is available now on devices with Wear OS 3.5 or higher.
