    No surprise that you can’t scan the card from “Wallet” on the Apple Watch with PC Plus. I’ve sent 3 emails to Metro so far asking them to fix the same thing so we can scan their card from the Watch. I’ve got nothing but lip service from them. What the hell is their problem and why is it so difficult for them to fix this ? If Starbucks and Tim Horton can do it, why can’t Metro can ?

    Yes was excited to see it updated yesterday thinking I could scan from my watch, was very disapointed to see it didn’t support this, removed it from my watch right away.

  • Not sure why they aren’t supporting this, doesn’t make any sense. Hopefully it comes soon for customers!

    It all depends on the type of scanners that the company is using and the type of barocdes that need to be scanned.

    The company who I work for has the same issue and the only fix would be to change out all the scanning equipment and update all the users barcodes. This would obviously lead to a huge cost in equipment.

    It’s not as simple as just updating the app to show a barcode.

    I don’t understand. What’s the difference between scanning the same card from either the phone or the watch ?…It works with Starbucks and Tim Horton…..

  • and lets not forget the liquor store…. NSLC is able to scan my airmiles card with no issues… they love it… It is baffling that my watch won’t scan but my phone will at PC stores…

    I can’t even see my deals on the watch. I see the app but when I press it, it says to log in with a ‘retry’ button that does nothing. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it 3 times to no avail.

  • I know this is an older thread, but I think the issue is a function of 1D vs 2D barcodes. PC Plus uses the former, whereas cards from Starbucks, Tim’s, Optimum, etc., use the latter.

    The Apple Watch doesn’t seem to want to display Passbook cards with 1D barcodes, maybe because they realize they’ll be too small to scan properly, as compared to the iPhone screen. PC Plus works fine from my iPhone, but that’s because the Loblaws group controls all of the in-store equipment, so their scanners can handle it. I find using my Air Miles cards from my iPhone — which is also a 1D barcode — is much more hit-and-miss. The LCBO can handle it fine, Rexall stores mostly can’t, for instance, and neither can any of the Lowe’s stores I’ve been to.
