Samsung Wallet on multiple watches

Two feature requests for Galaxy watches and Samsung Wallet.

1. When adding payment cards to a Samsung phone, the cards should be added/synchronized to the watch. 
Currently, the user has to add the payment cards again to the watch. 
2. Use Samsung Wallet concurrently on multiple Galaxy watches. 
Google and Apple Wallet have both of the above features. Samsung, please consider.
I want to be able to use Samsung Wallet on both the Watch 5 Pro and the Watch 6 Classic. Not one or the other.

@userlQcCM1wRc8 I would also like to see the ability to set up on multiple watches. 

In regards to #1, this may not be possible since the card has to be associated with the secure element (hardware) in each device. For security I think financial institutions want to ensure that the user actively approves the use on a new device. Getting the card from the phone to the watch is pretty easy. Much of the information is pre-populated, it is just the verification information that you need to provide.

Thank you, for your response.
I see your point on request #1 and the individual hardware element needing to be verified by the financial institution. We can remove that request.

Request #2 would be fantastic to work on multiple watches.
Google Wallet has this capability. I am not thrilled about the lack of security for GW as it only requires the user to unlock their phone to use.
Samsung Wallet requires fingerprint or pin verification at the point of sale and purchase with a bank card.
Far superior in my mind.
If we can get SW to work on multiple watches concurrently, then it will be my default go to! I think many who have more than one watch would agree.
