I have been using Samsung Pay on a Gear S3 Frontier and S8+ Phone since launch. All I can say is don't, Samsung Pay (and Samsung software in general) is terrible, their support is equally as bad. I have sent numerous log files to them with issues. If it is a Samsung Pay problem they will never admit it is a software problem, they will always blame your card issuer or the watch needs repair. It is not, it is their terrible software. Among the issues I have had are: Reader simply not detecting the watch and just sits there. Payment not authorised, Phone not found (even though Samsung state that you can use the watch without the phone present). I would say the watch works 50% of the time. Currently I have not had a successful payment in 3 weeks (all at places that I use regularly and have used the watch with before). Add to this the farce of Samsung continually 'fixing' the battery issue and fail (my watch will last 6 hours on a full charge with almost everything turned off). My next watch will be an Android/Google Pay watch as Samsung software engineers have not got a clue (don't get me started on their 'smart' TVs!).
