Apple Watch Will Support Apple Pay

Yet another unique function of the Apple Watch involves its compatibility with Apple Pay (shown in Figure 4), which is already being supported by hundreds of thousands of retail stores and dining establishments throughout the United States, including fast food restaurants like McDonald’s and Starbucks.

Figure 4 Apple Pay launched in October 2014, and will be fully compatible with Apple Watch once it’s released.

Instead of using your traditional debit or credit card to make purchases, you’ll be able to pay for purchases at participating retailers and restaurants by tapping your watch while using the Apple Pay app when you approach the cash register. Your purchases will be charged to your existing debit or credit card; however, each secure purchase transaction will be handled wirelessly by your Apple Watch.
