Just installed it from the samsung app store, attempted to install but it suggested i update my firmware. All installed and working fine.
Yep not a lot of banks onboard yet luckily I have a santander account which it all works fine, although my main account i use is natwest so won't be using it much if at all until they are on board.
Just waiting for the update for the gear s2 now so i can try it with that.

Got it installed and tested in McDonalds....
No idea why this is not supported on the Gear S3; missed a trick there Samsung!!

Is there a way to urge our banks to join? And am I right to think that Samsung Pay uk is different as it works only when contactless payment is available while in the us it works with ordinary machines?

Lack of banks is not ideal, mines isn't there. However the fact in America they have that magnetic technology that pays anywhere and this isn't being given to uk customers, I'll stick to android pay. Literal samsung have given us no reason to use samsung pay.

I use Android Pay on my s8 as I'm in the Uk too and HSBC hasn't yet joined in with Samsung Pay.
However I'd like to try out Samsung Pay on my s8 and Gear s2 Classic Watch.

Im waiting for the S2 update as well, apparently some UK S2 have already updated. Works fine on my S6 phone and supports my savings bank but not my current account bank. I also like the loyalty card integration

Have you tried pressing and holding your back button on your s2 launch Samsung Pay?
Which update have you seen that your waiting for if the back button holding does not invoke Samsung Pay.
I can't try on my s2 Classic yet as I mentioned earlier my bank has yet to pull the trigger on joining.
