That did it! Thank you!

I can't figure out why Google is doing this. Seems strange to restrict use of payment cards meant to be used universally.

I tried using accessibility API to simulate taps on Enable button. It works fine on phone but unfortunately not on Wear. Everything except simulating input (at least clicks) works. I'm asking about this on G+ (Android Wear Developers).

However latest update v0.4 that I'm pushing right now checks for state of Google Pay in background (for a short while after Pay Enabler is started) and launches it once it's enabled. Tapping [Open] is no longer needed.

Thanks. Made my life easier with PayEnabler while stupid Google ruined my Huawei Watch 2 by stopping Google Pay in Oreo.

Tried to pay in supermarket, but couldnt find the Google Pay app suddenly in my watch. It was embarassing that it took me 3 minutes in the cashier to enable the Google Pay and many other customers behind me.

It doesn't matter.
You cannot add unsupported cards (countries) anymore.
Make sure you do not reset your phone or watch 'cause you wont be able to add card back again. (noticed it yesterday) after full phone and watch reset.

I got my watch today in Germany and installed the app from the Play Store. However, every time I open the app, it just redirects me to the Play Store which shows that Google Pay is currently not supported in my country. Any workaround for that?

Yes you need a Google Account from an country where Google Pay for Smartwatches is active. I have one from the US (created with VPN). You can add the second account without removing your normal one.

After that you should be able to activate it.

I'm in Hong Kong now, and I have an us google account, both local and US account all added in my LG watch sport google pay
so yesterday I switch google pay to my us account first, then added my previonsly successed VISA card, problem still exist, need to active pay enabler again and again for a while
but when I switch back to my original local google account, and added again for my previonsly used VISA card, problem seems solved!!

now already 24 hours passed, no need to active pay enabler again , google pay doesnt disppear any more
and also made a several transaction successfully.
but the situation is:

Germany now officially got G.Pay, but no Watch-Pay!

It's installable from PlayStore - thus no VPN required?
