Hi @psbs. NFC is meant for use with SPay at point-of-sales terminals. I've not heard of it being used with applications that reside outside of wireless payments. 

 

In this case I'd encourage you to try Samsung's developer forum. The watch has a debug/dev mode, but whether that expands NFC usage is a mystery to me.

I have a domotica system using home assistant in my house. This system allows me to to read nfc tags with my phone and giving home assistant the right command to for example turn the lights on. It would be great if the nfc feature on the watch would send the info to the phone connected so that i can turn on lights, the television or even my computer just by waving my watch near an nfc tag.

 

Im pretty surprised that people giving support hear havent even heard of other ways to use NFC...

 

So the real question is.. does the watch active 2 send the info read in the NFC tag to the phone? Or will it just give a read error because its not payment thing
