I just purchased a Galaxy Watch 4 in my country (Israel) and when setting it up I found out that it is a grey import with the country list being limited to a small group of Mid-South American Spanish speaking countries (Cuba, Colombia, Guatemala, etc.).

I understand this affects my ability to use Samsung Pay in my country. Would the region lock affect anything else in addition to this?
Also, Would it be possible to somehow change the region of the watch?

IMHO no final solution yet... because few things missing...

But maybe you can help...

Look into this Thread:

Are you able to give full Firmware infos?
So it is is easier to identify what you have...

IMHO easiest way to get full infos is to type this Code:
*#1234#

yes my bad. I have SM-R880NZSALTA => so LTA country code ?
I see now where you got that first CSC, as I just ran that code in my dialer and that's what came up as well - but you're right, the CSC should be the last three letters of your model number (mine is XAC for example, for Canada) - but I don't see LTA on the CSC list, so the mystery deepens. What country did you buy your watch in?

I bought it in the UAE but the seller didn't send a local version even though he was advertising so.
Same as @SyphonFi when setting up the watch it was only allowing me to choose between south-american countries.
So I end up with a watch that doesn't allow me to use google pay.
I was hoping to change the region easily, but it seems that it's not available yet from what I'm reading here.

If you own an lte version, you can change the csc once using the imei code *#272*IMEI# and change to your desired csc once. But there's no returning back. I had CSC of INS and changed to SER where ECG, BP and S pay works. But the companion phone app is region locked, so no luck even changing the region, so I followed the modded version of health monitor from @Dante63 and used vpn to install g pay following - https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...p-will-be-pre-installed.4325033/post-85581263

Hello. can you describe step by step what to do after you enter the code
Sure
Note* This method can be done if it is LTE varient
Step 1: your watch dial pad enter the following
*#272*IMEI# ( enter IMEI number of your watch)

Step 2 : Select the region code or Russia (SER)
And select the option install (the watch will reset and reboot automatically)

Step 3 : pair with Mobile again and install the samsung pay plugin in your mobile

Step 4: open samsung pay in your watch and follow the steps it will prompt to mobile to add the card

I'm in India after doing these steps even LTE works fine and I get samsung pay too

I have attached the samsung pay watch plug-in for the mobile

No as of now you can't go back or change the CSC code again using this method this code works only once in a device.
But this is not permanent we can change it as of now we don't have the combination files once the combination files are available we can change it to any region and multiple times.
