It seems like every time this app is upgraded (frequently) I need to reload card information. It's a pain in the butt when you're trying to use the watch app and discover that it's necessary to go through the process again on the phone, which is then synced with watch. On top of that, the app name seems to evolve as it's updated. Is it Samsung Pay or Samsung Wallet or maybe Samsung Wallet/Pay (watch) or are they all the same? On the plus side, the app is accepted by almost every vender.

The experience has been degraded with Samsung Pay on Galaxy Watches to the point that it's not worth the effort. Double pin entry. Increasingly unreliable with readers. Backs out of pay mode half the time you turn your wrist over to pay. Deactivates all cards and requires reimporting on every update. I'm not bothering to reactivate this time. Gpay is a hundred times more reliable on the Galaxy Watch, doesn't require double pin entry, and can be mapped to double home press.

I've been using the Samsung Pay app on my Galaxy Watch Active2 for about three months. It has worked exactly as described from the start. I definitely like having the ability to go through a checkout line without touching the card readers. However, some stores require you to press the enter key regardless. The ability to load multiple debit/credit cards is also great feature. I just swipe left or right to find the one I want ro use, and pay! Unfortunately, not all retailers accept Samsung Pay.
