Galaxy Watch 4 - Deactivate "Deactivation Gesture" [sic!]

Dear community,

I would please like to ask for your help concerning the following issue.

Is there a way to deactivate the "deactivation gesture"? With this (perhaps) neologism, I refer to the watch automatically turning off its display when tilted into certain postures.

I assume, when one activates the "activation gesture" option, this kind of automatism is rather reasonable, for the the activation gesture causing the watch's screen to turn on frequently.

However, I purposely turned this feature off and purposely scaled down the "screen time out" on the lowest possible value (hence, battery life should be saved). Still, when tilted "unluckily", the watch turns off its screen (e.g., let us assume, I am carrying my groceries, receive an e-mail, want to read it, but, due to the fact I have my arms positioned into a rather "funny" angle due to my clumsiness and the load, the screen will constantly turn off).

Yours sincerely,
Mario

To my knowledge, that isn't possible. It will always auto-disable the screen, even with Always on Display enabled (where it'll just show a digital time and show the background blurred when you're in an app or on a widget).
