Has NFC Become Unfashionable with Wearables?

Here's my ideal mobile payments scenario: I go up to the counter with an NFC smartwatch or an NFC Ring, wave my hand or wrist Jedi-style over the contactless card reader, and the payment goes through. Maybe a digital receipt will show up on my phone's screen, but I'd never have to take the phone out of my pocket. Sadly, this process is looking more like science fiction than science fact, now that the specs for Google's inaugural line of Android Wear smartwatches are out – and Near Field Communication is conspicuously absent from the features of the LG G watch and the Samsung Gear Live watch.
