I was wondering, given the impossibility of using Google Pay (NFC), if anyone had tried Garmin pay or SwatchPAY! with GrapheneOS. Do they work decently to be able to pay? Or are they unusable?
Thank you in advance.
randomPotato545 I have linked my card to GarminPay although I haven't tried it yet in store
Alphaleus Thank you for the answer, if you could try a payment I would be really grateful!
As far as NFC Payments go the only options I am aware of that don't require Google Wallet or an external device (smartwatch) are Stocard and Curve (Curve Pay) both require an account and while the former should work as close to out of the box as possible, the latter needs to be downloaded from the Huawei App Gallery alongside the HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) Core app too.
I too will be interested if Garmin Pay can be setup Alphaleus
I tested Garmin pay this morning and it worked perfectly :)
Once the card is added to Garmin pay you can leave the phone at home so I was confident it was going to work.

timttmy THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Is a Garmin watch required to use Garmin pay? Would it be possible to install and use the app with pay functionality without possessing a Garmin watch?
thequint I can't see any option in the Garmin Connect app to pay with the app, nor can I see a Garmin Pay app in the play store. So I would say that you need a Garmin watch to use Garmin Pay.
You have to enter a supported bank card details in to the Garmin Connect app, which is then synced to the wallet on the watch. The watch then contains a copy/clone of the card which can be used "offline" (doesn't need to be connected to a smart phone or wifi.).
