Inside the Wearables app, go to Samsung Pay first, and set it up, as you have done previously from the start. You will have to pair your cards again and get SMS confirmation from your bank.
The app will ask you to finish the setup on the watch, holding the top side button on the watch, go through it and see if your samsung pay is working. Only after that, you can UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE FROM THE WEARABLES APP.
This will change your CSC / Region Code.
