As well as the iPhone 6, the new Apple Watch will also uses Apple’s contactless payment system, Apple Pay, and now we have some more details about how the device will work with Apple Pay.
The guys over at Cult of Mac spoke to Apple at the press event the other day, and they found out some details on how Apple Pay will work on the Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch has sensors on the back of the device, and these sensor will detect when you are wearing the watch, when you first out the Apple Watch on your wrist, you have to enter a code to authorize the device.
You can then make contactless payments with the device with Apple Pay, and the sensor on the back can tell if you have taken the watch off.
As soon as the sensor detects that you are no longer wearing the device, then the watch locks itself, and you cannot make payments with Apple Pay, in order to make payments, you have to put the device back on, and then enter the unlock code again.
This should ensure that if your Apple Watch is stolen, that nobody will be able to use the device to make payments using Apple Pay.
