FidMe, one of Samsung’s global partners for the Gear S2 comes pre-loaded on the smartwatch. The popular loyalty wallet application is available on almost every mobile platform and provides users with digitally stored coupons and discounts for over 17,000 business places both (online and local shops). The FidMe app on the Gear S2 however makes it a notch easier to manage all those saved coupons and loyalty cards right from a user’s wrist.
The app generates a bar-code or qr code of the coupon, which can then be shown to the retailer to redeem benefits of the saved coupons. The unique rotating bezel on the Gear S2 adds up to the ease of use of the FidMe app as with just a turn of the bezel, users can navigate through a wide range of special offers, coupons and discounts provided by various retailers. The FidMe app also sends in push notifications on the Gear and even has the unique feature to notify users about offers when they pass by certain stores.
Mobile payment is one of Samsung’s higher priorities on its Tizen based smartwatch and has introduced several new services as a result of in house developments or partnerships with popular companies. Samsung Pay and AliPay are two popular examples for this.
