Which rom did you use?
I've already flashed my S3 Frontier.
I can test it with my scotiabank CC
I initially used BQC2 to downgrade from Tizen 3 but couldn't find the CSC and BL files for it so ended up using BQC5. Changed the CSC code to XAR. Finally updated back to Tizen 3 OTA.

Samsung pay is there but it just won't validate my CIBC debit card, CIBC support is pretty useless they are saying they recently started debit card support so it's a hit and miss but credit card should work with SP.

Is there an equivalent U.S. ROM for the Gear Sport?

I managed to install the US version of the firmware and now I have the Samsung pay on my watch but it won't accept my CIBC debit card!! What did you use as Zip code?
I am getting the error that my card is not supported.
I have already applied for a CIBC Visa can't wait to receive and try it!!!

Does samsung pay work on a watch with custom rom? No Knox related issue as in the phones? I didnt know you can install roms on this watch also, else I would not have bought US version. Interesting.

If you have the ability to, I would always stick with a stock rom so that there's no chance of having issues. Since yours is US, I think that's better and safer.

When I used to flash roms on my Android phones, there would always be some issue, like the camera not working properly, or the wifi no working properly, etc. I haven't flashed a rom in a few years now and couldn't be happier with all stock and everything working.

Ah man, I'm just gonna wait it out...

Just so we're clear, samsung pay is on the canadian S3 frontier watch as far as I can tell.
I manually installed the Samsung Pay Framework apk (on the phone) and was able to launch S Pay on the watch no problem.
I get a message that there's an S Pay update (on the watch). Once I click update it shoots out the error "Samsung Pay is not supported in the country registered to the SIM card in your phone" error message (on the phone).

I wonder if I can spoof the Country registered on my sim :/
