Okay so after having tried several guides, apps hacks and what nots, I couldn't get GPay to work here in India.
However after some more fiddling around I ended up getting access to rather easily than expected.

I'd straight away get to the steps.

1. Download this apk.
2. Install this on watch using whatever method you guys been using to sideloaded APKs to watch.
3. Install tunnel bear vpn (or any other if you prefer)
4. Select US server in VPN app. Make sure you're connected.
5. Open the just installed GPay app in the watch and complete the setup and add a new card.
(Mine got stuck at selecting Google account for some time but then got through after switching VPN off, dunno what's actually going on)
6. Once setup is complete, you should see your card in GPay, and the GPay qs tile available.

Note: Though I've successfully added the card, I haven't tried payment yet, I'll update about it soon. Though it should work 99% since my card is shown in the GPay app.

Note 2: After the setup, I disconnected vpn and have been using my watch and phone without vpn and proxy.
With wifi and Bluetooth both enabled, and still haven't lost GPay app. Even after reboot. So hopefully it stays.

Hey I'm unable to install that apk, it's telling that I'm trying to downgrade the version? Is it because gpay is already in my watch, but disabled?

Yep. Install "GPay enabler" available in watch play store. It'll let you enable the app if it's already installed but disabled.
No it's working already tried that, that app removed from play store, sideloaded it, didn't work. But however found another way, instead of installing gpay, just reset the watch and while setting it up, switch on US vpn on mobile. Even working after reboot.

Omg dude, you helped me so much. In my cuntry it wasn't available on watch4. Bought the damn watch because of google wear and google pay support.
Sruggled few times. But finally got it working without VPN. Tried with VPN but it didn't help.
Downloaded the app you specified. After that updated the app with google play one.
And after it showed up in the app list.
Restarted the phone. Worked. Dude you saved me. Was loosing hope already. In few days will try to use it. hopefully it will work :)
Saved my ass :)
good luck to all!

Got the app installed. Enabled gpay, but not helping as much as I hoped. VPN doesn't help.
Maybe some other tips for watch 4? Edit2: card tile is avaliable, but does not register when trying to pay. Just says that try again on the terminal.
