Not too long ago, Google showcased Android Wear, as well as a bunch of smartwatches which will go on sale at the Google Play Store by the end of the day — Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch. With the launch of the new OS for smartwatches, PayPal is one of the first few to launch a dedicated app for Android Wear, giving users the ability to check in to pay at local stores, redeem offers, receive payment notifications, right on their wrist.

The folks at Paypal even posted some screenshots (as shown above) of the app in action, and personally, I feel that it looks great. It’s a good thing to see PayPal making a jump to Android Wear as soon as possible. The service has apps for Gear 2 and Gear Fit as well, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that they are working on an app for Android Wear.

The app is expected to rollout for devices in the coming weeks. We’ll update you as soon as they are available.
