S pay worked well, G pay for disabled before I got out to a shop. So sticking with S pay. It was cool showing the watch to the terminal, the guys were simply staring like they are seeing alien tech. 😁

Good thing that ny existing S pay application on my phone didn't got affected in any way. I still put on a magic show to those old machines using MST and S pay.

Hey, does this method to enable S PAY still work for regular SW4 in India? Also, how is SPAY different from GPAY ?

Hello, are OTA updates working fine for you? LTE version just received an update in alot of regions. Did you get it after changing to SER?

Please let me know as it is the only thing stopping me from changing csc. Thanks alot.
 
Okay so the last version you have installed on your watch is?

For SER region I just checked on checkfirm app, FVC8 is out. Maybe you'd just require a refresh in updates. Please check, thanks

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.

Anyone still able to use Gpay in India? I installed it three times and made payments as well. I did install the latest apk, so maybe that is at fault but it got disabled in an hour or two after I made a payment. Still no idea why there is no nfc payment option in Samsung watch 4 in India.

Refered to this guide and I can confirm that this guide works today (25-July-2022) as well. I also made payment at a pharmacy store from the watch and everything is working like a charm (without vpn also).

Thanks Nishant _713👍🏻

Which watch are you using? @abee
Using OPPO watch.
And it stopped working after 2 days.
A point to be noticed here is that the watch requires you to enable screen lock while setting up gpay and after it vanished, the screen lock was still there and when i try to disable the screen lock it says that the cards saved will be lost. I guess I will get back the gpay app if I start using US vpn again. But vpn i use is a trial version and I dont want it to see my payment transactions and methods so now i am thinking of creating a permanent proxy server. Will do it when i get some time and update the thread again.

Yea, you are right.. The app vanished but screen lock still exists and when I try to disable the screen lock, I get error that the saved cards will be deleted. Searching for other options to try.
Yeah. TBH, I've given up on this thing myself. All the hacks and warkarounds are too much a hassle for what we get in return. I guess till the time Google decides to let us use gpay on wearOS, there's not much we can do

Hi people,
Just sharing the steps I've tried to install and set up Samsung pay on my galaxy watch with my samsung phone.
Prerequisites:
I've setup the CSC to SER (Russia) region using the IMEI code, where Samsung pay is available for the Watch 4. I've downloaded the latest available samsung pay watch plugin - https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/samsu...ch-plug-in-2-6-88-20006-android-apk-download/ and also setup remote debugging by following this article - https://android.gadgethacks.com/how...-one-ui-3-0-its-actually-pretty-easy-0384228/

Once that is done, simply copy the downloaded apk to the adb directory and using the command to install the plugin to your phone.

Once that's done, open Samsung pay on the watch and choose proceed on phone, this should install the plugin app in the phone. Since I use the Russian region in the watch, I got the terms and conditions on Russian and then I was able to add my Indian debit card to the watch. Now, long press the back button to launch the Samsung pay to initiate the payment.

I tried the google pay app using the steps over here -https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/google-pay-unsupported-country-will-app-will-be-pre-installed.4325033/page-2#post-85581263, but it keeps on disabling and when I enable it, I get a message saying its not available in my region despite having it setup. But, when I again tried to uninstall and reinstall with the steps and the card is available. Some say that if we make a payment with google pay, the app don't disappear, yet to do that. Will update once I go to a store nearby.
I am able to install this app wirelessly from adb into my watch but cannot see it in the app gallery. I can also see that the app is installed by doing
adb shell cmd package list packages
and I can see the package listed - package:com.samsung.android.samsungpay.gear
But I am just not able to see it in the watch. I am on Indian CSC. What am I doing wrong?

Hi all. I have a problem that I think is not related directly with region because I'm in Portugal and here we have google pay and it's already installed on my galaxy watch 5. I have a Xiaomi mi 11 ultra (china rom) woth google wallet intalled and working. The step I can't overpass is to add the card to the watch.
After pressing the + sing to add a card just gives the loading circle and comes back to the add menu. No error message nothing opens on the phone. I had the same problem with my previous tickwatch pro giving the same behavior with this phone. I tried with my old mi9 and passed the card with no problems.
I have all the google services intalled , wearOS app from china and regular, tried all workarounds and tricks and no luck.
I'm trying to avoid to install Xiaomi.eu rom because I have now everything working flawless and have no need to install it.
Anyone have surpassed this problem already?

    Hi,
    I regret that I read your answer late. I have tried changing the CSC to SER (Russia) in hopes of getting the Samsung pay and ecg blood pressure features. But I later realized that those apps need to install a companion app in the phone and those are region locked and couldn't install on phone. I wonder how you get the Samsung pay to work. Also when I tried to change the csc back to INS (default) it didn't show that option at all, can you verify whether you're getting csc selector by running the command *#272*imei# ?
    You can change CSC only once. There is no option to go back. At least for now. If I learn trick to change, i will let you know.

    You are correct, you would need companion app for ECG and Spay. but those APKs are easily available on net. Search for Spay Phone companion apk and install on phone. That's how I was able to make Spay work,

    Fo ecg, bp, follow @Dante63 trend on SGW4 page.

    Thanks @avirendra
    I have just installed the health monitor from following @Dante63.
    Now trying to install g pay via the hacks on xda.
    Since I'm on the Russian region, I have S pay in watch by default but when it tries to connect to phone, it directly goes to play store to install Spay watch plugin which is not available in India. Can you share where/how you installed this plugin app on your phone?

    Will this work on Galaxy watch 4? Has anyone tried this on watch 4?
    I was able to have Samsung PAy work, but only after changing the CSC to MEA. I use SPay, not Gpay
