Just joined samsung family few days ago and brought galaxy watch 5 pro. I'm super happy with its design but there's one bit of problem, the NFC. Tried samsung pay or Google wallet, both hit and missed 80% of the time, such as transport , retail store. 

So far, nothing was fixed neither the repair service do wonders. Ending up using phone as digital payment. 

Has any one got this same problem? I'll be happy if there's Solutions

But I hope it doesn't. Anyway, I have sent in my Watch 4 for repair before last year. No issue with water resistance, so should be safe. Afterall, u still have warranty, although it doesn't cover water damage.

Usually, how water will enter into the Watch components is thru the metal plate found at the back of the watch. The housing of the heart rate sensor and other sensors. Which my Watch Active 2's housing metal plate came loose and I suspected that's how my LCD was damaged, after I discovered the loose housing.

I bought a cheap replacement from Shopee however was too late. The water should have entered before my discovery.
