    Samsung S8 with Gear 3 Frontier Watch
    Part question and maybe part tip for others...

    I would have preferred to use 2 different credit cards for one app but in my case it is not possible because of the banks supporting certain apps only.
    In my case Canadian Tires "Triangle Master Card" using Google pay and "CIBC" using Samsung pay

    So what I did was installed Google Play on the mobile and set it as the default NFC
    Then I setup Samsung Pay for the watch using Galaxy Wearable app.

    I have not tested it yet but I am guessing all I need to do is tap my phone for one credit card and for the other press and hold button on watch, click on the credit card image and tap...with the odd time having to enter my pin #.
    I then went back to the mobile and checked Settings/Connections/NFC/Tap&pay and Google Pay shows that it is still default App.

    The simple question is has anyone figured this out or tried it out?

    Note that I am aware you can open the according apps before paying but would think and hope this is little more convenient.
