Does the Galaxy Gear have an NFC chip, or more importantly that "Secure Element" ? Any possibility of getting Google Wallet tap to pay running on it?

I think the NFC chip is in the cradle not the actual phone if I'm correct please lmk. ..

The gear itself does not have NFC. The cradle has an NFC programmable tile built in, but that's the extent of it.

correct. the direction states that to put the watch in the cradle then tap it to your phone. speaking of which, that cradle is thick enough to put in a battery. that way it's like having a spare battery.
