LevelUp Brings Mobile Payments to Your Wrist with Android Wear Support

July 18, 2014 - Written By Nick Sutrich


Sick of pulling out your wallet at the counter just so you can pay for whatever you’re buying?  While using something like Google Wallet, PayPal or Level Up to pay with your phone makes paying much more convenient since you don’t have to file through all the receipts and other crap in your wallet, you still have to pull the phone out of your pocket.  Level Up is here to solve this problem for you, so long as you have an Android Wear device anyway, by giving full Level Up payment support to your Android Wear watch.  That’s right, you no longer even have to take your phone or wallet out of your pocket to pay for practically anything at any location that accepts Level Up as a payment option, as a simple “OK Google, start Level Up” voice command on your Android Wear smartwatch will now bring up the payment system for you.

Better yet at participating retailers where Level Up credit is added for each purchase, Level Up will automatically start for you on your Android Wear smartwatch, giving a nice little card on the front of the watch letting you know the retailer participates in Level Up payments and promotions and letting you pay with a single click on your watch.  It’s these fantastic little things that make owning a smartwatch all the more worth it, and developers like Level Up that clearly get what owning a smartwatch is all about.

Not familiar with Level Up?  Level Up is a mobile payment app that lets you link all your credit and debit cards with it so that you can pay in a snap and not have to carry all those pesky things with you wherever you go.  With the newest update and Android Wear support, paying with your device is easier than ever, and fully automated too.  There’s even a nice little tip calculator built into the app and you can swipe up to change to automatic tips in 5% increments all without having to navigate away from your watch.  It doesn’t get any more convenient, so check out the app at the Play Store link below to grab it for yourself!
