NFC for Samsung Pay

I've noticed that compared to the Fossil Wear OS watches the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic seem to have a rather weak NFC signal that needs to almost be tapped against the registers to pay, unlike the Fossil watches that seems to work from about 6" away, or sometimes more.

I have the Galaxy Watch 4 classic, and I'm wondering if it's perhaps due to the added metal of the rotating bezel that kind of blocks the NFC signal, so I'm wondering those of you that have the Watch 4, non-classic, do you get good NFC signal or do you need to hold it very close to the cash register?

It's a security measure. The closer NFC is, the more secure it is
