    Is anyone else really annoyed that you have to have lock screen turned on to use Samsung pay?
    I understand the security purposes but couldn't they just make it when you require the pin if you're trying to use Samsung Pay?

    I hate having to enter my pin every time I want to check a notification, I get hundreds of notification a day...

    It was also very annoying that if you turn lock screen off and on again, Samsung Pay requires you to add every single card again

    The pin is only required when you first put the watch on it should not ask for it again until the watch is removed from your wrist.

    If the watch is loose it will keep prompting you.

    My experience is the same and I turned it off it was much too annoying. I don't know how it determines it being loose but it is a terrible user experience.

    Have no issues with mine. Input the PIN in the morning when I first put it on, and use Samsung Pay several times throughout the day without ever having to type in the PIN again.

    Same. Only when I take it off my wrist. Otherwise it's good once I've entered the pin after putting the watch on again.

    I have the problem intermittently. I don't know why Samsung doesn't make an option to just enter the pin when you have to use Samsung Pay.

    Couldn't agree more. My PIN is triggered several times a day if I'm active. I have to wear it super tight for it not to trigger the locking pin. Ugh. Wish it was just for the Samsung Pay app, not the whole watch. Or that it didn't lock when a watch comes loose for 1/2 second on your wrist. So annoying.

    I was having the same issues, but a quick power cycle fixed me up. I hope it helps.

    This is an option after the most recent update.

    Go to Settings > Security > Screen Lock > Usage and select Payments.

    HELL YEAH!!!!!!!

    I literally have hated this issue for 6 months. When people ask about how I like the watch I say I do a lot but this issue always is in the back of my mind. Wow. Just like that, it's solved! I'm actually shocked.

    Thank you for posting this!

    Crud?! When I go to Security --> Screen Lock Only Options are "Screen Lock Type" (Pin) and "Help".

    No "Usage and select Payments"?

    No. The option is apparently only available in certain countries.

    Today was my first full day with my watch. Every time I drop my arm and raise it, I have to enter my pin. The only remedy to this problem for me was to tighten the band so tight that it's very uncomfortable. This is the second problem I've experienced with this otherwise wonderful watch. The other being cards deleting themselves in Samsung pay. I really want to keep this watch, but I can't live with these issues.

    I've only had it require my pin once or twice, but I've only had it just shy of a week. I'm guessing you're using the OEM band it came with. You could purchase a different band and see if the holes on another band accommodate your wrist better.
