Switch Galaxy Wearable Store Location using XPrivacyLua

Update 6 July 2020: Added alternative method using Riru Location Report Enabler.

Galaxy Wearable Store (GWS) is the app store for Galaxy wearable devices of Samsung. GWS is strongly region-dependent, just like other aspects of the device (you have to do some software hacking for a device purchased in one region to use Samsung Pay in another region). Being able to run with non-Samsung devices means that it cannot rely on the region-of-sale on the phone (and for some reason they didn’t choose to use the region of the device), GWS decided to use the region of your SIM card on the device to determine the store location.
