Anyone who has bought a Smartwatch has done so for several reasons. In addition to functions such as measuring fitness data and displaying notifications, digital credit cards can also be stored in the smart watches. On the Smartwatch operating system „WearOS“ from Android this is possible with the Google Pay app. <The problem with this is that almost only credit cards can be stored, and these in turn have the disadvantage that it is harder to keep track of your finances. The reason for this is that credit card companies only debit the payments collectively at the end of the month. On the Smartphone the alternative for most users is „PayPal“. It is very easy to deposit a virtual credit card from PayPal in the Google Pay app. The advantage of a virtual PayPal credit card is that PayPal debits the amount within a few days after the payment, which makes it easier to keep track of your finances.
The problem with PayPal and WearOS
Whoever wants to use a Smartwatch, but does not want the disadvantages of a credit card, would like to simply deposit the virtual credit card from PayPal. Unfortunately this is not possible so far and it does not look like this will change in the near future.
What to do? We have found the perfect alternative for you.
Klarna Card: The perfect alternative to PayPal
Klarna is a Swedish payment provider that has become very popular in recent years. Since 2019 Klarna also offers a completely free „Klarna Card“. This works on the same principle as PayPal and debits the paid amount from your bank account after 1-3 days. The difference to PayPal is that you can deposit the Klarna Card in Google Pay just like a normal credit card, even on a Smartwatch.
We have been using the Klarna Card for some time now and are very satisfied. We never had any problems that the card was not accepted and the paid amount was always debited on time. All payments can also be viewed and controlled in the Klarna app.
