I bought my galaxy watch active in May of 2019. In September I started getting this samsung pay notification that would not go away. It continued to come up on the watch every ten seconds or so and no amount of resetting the watch,turning off notifications from samsung pay, or uninstalling and reinstalling the app worked. Every few weeks I would charge it up and let it get any new update hoping that would fix my issue. It would work about 30 minutes and then that samsung pay notification would popup again wanting me to set up samsung pay. I finally sent it in for repair. I was assured my warranty was good until June 30 2020. Then I receive an email with a $155 charge stating warranty was voided. I called and was told it was for water damage. The lady I spoke to asked me if I washed my hands or my dishes ever while wearing this watch. Ofcourse I have. I told her this watch advertises water resistance even when swimming and showering and I never did either because I did not trust it. I told her the watch worked absolutely fine except for the samsung pay notification. How can it have water damage and the only problem is a samsung pay notification that wont go away? Everything else on the watch worked perfectly. She also brought up the fact that I should have turned on water mode. That is just to lock the screen while swimming. It does not make the watch any more or less water resistant than it has been advertised to be. Has anyone else had this trouble with <edit> samsung technicians who will say absolutely anything to get out of honoring a warranty?
