    Trying to set up Apple Pay on a fresh install of iOS 9b3, and watchOS 2b3, and getting this error when I click 'Add Credit or Debit Card':

    "Could Not Set Up Apple Pay

    An error occurred while setting up Apple Pay"

    any ideas? I've seen tips to remove/re-add iCloud account, but I don't really want to do that (4gb of photos to re-download).

    Thanks

    Which financial institution are you trying to add?

    Hi Xiph0s - at the moment, I only have a Chase card loaded into my iPhone.

    Actually, no, LOL. I hadn't added any cards after the reload (weird), but....

    I added two cards (both with chase) and got the same error after each, when it offered to enable them on the watch.

    so I just bit the bullet and signed out of iCloud. This isn't that important, but its really bugging me.
    I added a chase card that it 'had on file' by entering the security code. Then it wanted me to log in with my apple ID, which I did. This was my iCloud apple ID, not the one I use for iTunes purchases. It took about 5 minutes of spinning, but then finished.

    Trying again, it complained twice it couldn't connect to the watch, and then repeated the above error message. Rebooting watch now...
