I have not tried using only the watch without the phone but I guess need.

Technically speaking for Bluetooth version it should need the phone else you have no connections for the watch to authenticate the payment.
Correct. Since there is no MST built in the GW as well. Which is why I'm waiting for the LTE model

Anyone knows if Samsung watch supports sending voice messages on WhatsApp or other apps?
Yes it does. I have tried replying WhatsApp using voice.

Do note that you can reply WhatsaApp on the watch but not create new messages.

Yes Samsung dropped the MST from the new Galaxy Watch (only with NFC) compared to the Gear S3. It's only a different tech available for payment over the machines. Not sure if the LTE model is going to help.

Samsung Pay is not available on iOS smartphones. After initial setup, Samsung Pay on Galaxy Watch can make at least five transactions without reconnecting to a network. Samsung Pay on Galaxy Watch requires network connection through LTE or Wi-Fi or via Bluetooth pairing with compatible smartphone. Samsung Pay on the Galaxy Watch is only compatible with select cards, carriers, and Samsung devices and non-Samsung Android phones. Samsung Pay on the Galaxy Watch is compatible only with NFC-type payment terminals.

Thanks for clarifying! But the voice msg you referring is the voice to text function right?

Does it allows sending voice recording? Voice to text is usually a hit and miss for me

No it doesn’t. I can only choose to send voice-to-text reply. No voice recordings.

Just did my first run with Galaxy Watch last evening. It was good, tracking live heart rate and gps mapping.
After the run, there was lots of stats to see. Good fitness tracker really.

Not sure if the GPS is slightly inaccurate though, I clocked 5.01km, while my friends using phone clocked 5.05km.
Not very big difference though so it's okay.

Last time the old Samsung Galaxy Gear and the Samsung Gear S2 / gear fit was off the road, the distance was pretty inaccurate.
