Hi there,

I want to develop a non-payment Android smartwatch app (Wear OS) that uses NFC tag read/write feature. Simple tag tapping and doing something on the smartwatch. Android smartwatches support NFC Payment (card emulation), so this means NFC chip is in there. Does this mean NFC tag read/write feature is also available in smartwatch, just not many applications? I hate to think NFC smartwatches only support NFC Payment, not the rest of NFC goodies. Android smartphones support NFC tag read/write feature. What are the reasons for not supporting in smartwatches?

If NFC tag read/write feature is not supported in Android smartwatches, any workaround to enable that? 

Thanks in advance.
