The battle got started.....!
PayPal has built an app for the Pebble smartwatch that lets users check in and pay at retailers on the go. The app lets Pebble wearers find stores and restaurants, check in, order what they want and then pay before they even arrive. The app also sends out payment notifications. PayPal has taken an enthusiastic approach to wearables and already has apps for Android Wear devices and the Samsung Gear range. The firm's Joel Yarbrough says "we’re making it really easy for you to pay at local stores right from your smart watches. Instead of pulling out a wallet, you pay right from your wrist."
