Why won't Apple Pay work on my Apple Watch?

Here are some trouble shooting tips if Apple Pay will not work on your Apple Watch:

First make sure Apple Pay has been set up in the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

Apple Pay will not work on your Apple Watch if your passcode has been disabled. To enable your passcode, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and navigate to My Watch > Passcode and tap the enable passcode option.

Apple Pay will not work if wrist detection has been disabled. To access the wrist detection settings open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and navigate to My Watch > General > Wrist Detection.
