I will only dare to use the ABT Mobile payment trial during off-peak period.
Be a test specimen for the trial during off peak...

Just failed 5x at the gantry today. Anyone have similar problems?

It was at the gantry that I had no problems at all.

Managed to use it yesterday from my journey to the east.

I've noticed something when I'm using Google Pay. It takes the machine time to toggle between different modes before going to detect bank cards. How do I know this, on Android devices it will vibrate when it is being scanned or sent the signal to the reader. It vibrates twice before the gate detecting the bank card all this within a second or a second half.

As far as I know, there are 3 kinds of cards being supported, one being the bank card the other two is CEPAS and the phasing out EZ-Link. So the latency of scanning is highly likely due to this switching.

Secondly, when you register your card with ABT on Mobile, it takes time for it to propagate your account across different terminals and services. MRT gates are via LAN and should be the fastest and the busses only do so around the Bus terminals where they have a WiFi network to sync various of things between the busses local database to the servers. (I can't elaborate on this..Potentially P&C)
I guess that could probably be the reason my watch sometimes show payment completed but no respond on the reader....

we all face this similar prob that's why after using a few weeks, we all stop using it already.
and after so many weeks still no improvement.
I have no problem previously until I signed out of my iCloud and had to re-add a new Apple Pay virtual device number.

Not sure if they are doing tuning or not

But I was able to use my watch easily for 3 weeks+ 95% success rate, then suddenly alot of time no respond.

Any of you heard any updates on this program? It's July 2018 already, and they are supposed to extend ABT to VISA in June. No word yet on where this is heading.

A little bird told me soon. They just got to iron out a few more things and the Trial with Visa will start!

I believe all series are supported since all of them possess the NFC chip and has Apple Pay.
I have received a call from ABT customer service.
They have confirmed that only Apple Watch Series 2 and above support Transitlink ABT.

i.e. Series 0 and Series 1 are not supported.

I was using it a few months back on a series 0 watch. Granted, it wasn't very smooth but it mostly worked.
