How to easily change Apple Pay default card for Apple Watch

The Apple Watch comes with a lot of features and functionalities aimed at making the day-to-day life of the user a bit easier, and that is one of the reasons behind the massive popularity of the smartwatch lineup from Apple.

One such useful feature is the support for using Apple Pay with the Apple Watch, which makes it quite easy to pay for anything without the need to take out cards from the wallet. With Apple Pay, the user just needs to hold the wrist up to the credit card terminal, and the Apple Watch will complete the transaction using the Apple Pay if it is configured properly.

When using Apple Pay, there may come a time when the user wants to change the default card that is used for transactions. This can be done using Apple iPhone and the Watch application, as there’s no way to change the default card from the Apple Pay app on the Watch as of now.

In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to quickly and easily change the default credit or debit card used for transactions done through Apple Pay using the Apple Watch wearable device.
