It looks like the Samsung Pay feature of the Gear S3 smartwatch is not working with the Google Pixel, for now.
This goes against previous reports of this particular feature working on all Android devices on KitKat 4.4 or above.
James Johnston had taken his query to Twitter by posting up about an “installation failed” error that occurred while he was installing Samsung Pay on his Google Pixel XL.
A few hours later, Samsung Pay support had responded saying that Pixel devices are not compatible with Samsung Pay.

The support channel then added that their team is in the midst of including new devices to their officially supported list, however, no precise timeline was given in regards to the Pixel or Pixel XL support.
Looks like there’s nothing that can be done besides wait, at least for now.
